PM heads to Quebec for Canada Summer Games kickoff

The PM heads to Quebec City for a day of photo ops, announcements and other public-ish events, starting with a joint appearance alongside newly minted Canadian Heritage Minister Shelly Glover, Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel and Quebec City Mayor Regis Labeaume.

Later this evening, he'll join Minister of State for Sport Bal Gosal at the University of Sherbrooke for the opening ceremonies of the Canada Summer Games.

Gosal, meanwhile, will spend most of the day sequestered behind closed doors with his provincial and territorial counterparts, with this year's annual conference set to wrap up this afternoon.

Finally, back in Ottawa, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird makes himself available by phone to take questions from reporters on his Latin American tour, during which he has thus far visited Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Columbia and Chile, with a stop in Brazil still to come.
