Inside Politics

Royal Baby Watch vs. Friends of Canadian Broadcasting

After postponing a press conference initially scheduled to take place last Monday due to (likely well founded) concerns that it would be overshadowed by the cabinet shuffle, the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting are now in danger of finding themselves in direct competition with live shots of the scene outside a London hospital as they make a second attempt to launch a new video ad campaign entitled 'The Man Behind The Desk.'

Meanwhile, in Manitoba, Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz delivers still more federal support for Canada's canola sector during a visit to Kelburn Farm in Howden.

Finally, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau continues his tour of the BC Interior with a stop at Gyro Park, where he'll hold a meet 'n greet at a concession stand.
