Fantino heads to Korea for 60th anniversary of Korean War Armistice

Canada's provincial and territorial premiers head into their second - and final - day of closed-door meetings, with health care -- and, specifically, how to cut costs without sacrificing quality -- topping today's agenda.

Meanwhile, on the ministerial circuit, Peter MacKay heads to Kentville with a fresh load of federal support for a project that, according to the advisory, "will engage men and boys in ending violence against women and girls," which he will deliver on behalf of newly minted Status of Women Minister Kelly Leitch.

Finally, Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino is in Korea, where, alongside 10 Canadian Korean War Veterans, he will unveil a new monument marking the 60th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice, while back in Canada, Newfoundland Conservative Senator David Wells will attend a similar ceremony at the Caribou Veterans' Memorial Pavilion in St. John's.
