UPDATED: PM spends a second day on the good news circuit in New Brunswick

UPDATE: This just in from the cutting-it-a-little-close-with-the-advisories-guys PMO scheduling department: the PM will make a second public-ish appearance in New Brunswick this afternoon when he visits Ritchie Wharf in Miramichi, where he will be joined by Revenue Minister Gail Shea and local MP Tilly O'Neill Gordon. 

Sport Minister Bal Gosal will be on hand for the opening ceremonies for this year's Pan American Cup, which is taking place in Brampton, and, as the advisory once again points out, involves field hockey.

Meanwhile, back in the capital, Foreign Affairs Minister convenes a virtual scrum to share the details of his now concluded visits to Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil, although it is entirely possible that participating reporters may be more interested in hearing what he has to say about that recent ruckus with self-styled 'conservative women's movement' REAL Women over his unabashed support for gay rights in Russia and Uganda. 

Moving westward to Manitoba, newly minted Minister of State for Social Development Candice Bergen does the honours on behalf of the federal government at the groundbreaking ceremony for a new affordable housing complex in Winkler.

Finally, on the west coast, Industry Minister James Moore makes his way to Abbotsford -- which, it should be noted, has seen a record number of cabinet drop-ins this week in relation to the now concluded defence and security expo -- where he's scheduled to "deliver brief remarks" at the city's annual airshow, which kicks off later this morning. 

For up to the minute dispatches from the precinct and beyond, keep your eye on the Parliament Hill Ticker below -- or, alternatively, bookmark it and check back throughout the day.
