Mulcair joins local NDP MPs for a pre-Regatta swing through St. John's

After a weekend appearance at the Vancouver Pride Parade, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair heads off to the other side of the country, where he'll join Newfoundland MPs Jack Harris and Ryan Cleary for a quick round of "neighbourhood tours" through Bay Bulls, The Goulds and Mount Pearl before returning to St. John's for a pre-regatta barbeque at the Royal Canadian Legion, after which he'll go "mainstreeting" on George Street.

Back on the west coast, meanwhile, International Trade Minister Ed Fast drops by Vancouver's Centre for Digital Media to celebrate the launch of what the advisory coyly describes as "the new studio of a Japanese game development company," while elsewhere in BC, local MP Andrew Saxton speaks at the "project completion ceremony" for the Salt Spring Island Public Library.

Finally, Governor General David Johnston and his wife, Sharon, kick off on a three-day visit to Whitehorse, where they will "observe the work of federal and territorial agencies working in collaboration with the Canadian Armed Forces members participating in this year's Operation NANOOK," and visit local communities.
