New Democrat MP seeks justice for St. Anne's Residential School 'survivors'

New Democrat MP Charlie Angus hits the stage at the National Press Theatre, where, accompanied by what the advisory describes as both "survivors" and "victims of the notorious St. Anne's Residential School on James Bay," he will "call on the Conservative government to stop undermining their efforts, and start helping them achieve justice."

Meanwhile, NDP leader Tom Mulcair kicks off a three-day tour of Northern Ontario with a stop at the Essar Steel Algoma plant in Sault Ste. Marie, which will be followed by meetings with Elliot Lake Mayor Rick Hamilton and the local chamber of commerce.

Elsewhere in Ontario, International Trade Minister Ed Fast "highlights the jobs and long-term growth Canadian innovators create in communities across the country" during a visit to the London operations of General Dynamics Land Systems Canada, while in Saskatoon, Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz delivers fresh federal support to the pulse sector during an appearance at The Galleria.

Finally, local MPs Gordon O'Connor and Tom Lukiwski are slated to represent the federal government at official festivities surrounding the openings of new affordable housing projects in Almonte and Moose Jaw, respectively.
