Ritz joins SK farmers to celebrate 'the first anniversary of marketing freedom'

Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz heads to Pense, Saskatchewan, where, alongside local MP David Anderson and a contingent of what the advisory describes as "Western farmers and members of the grain value chain," he will "celebrate the first anniversary of marketing freedom."

Also on the western circuit today: newly minted Labour Minister Kellie Leitch, who is scheduled to speak at a rotary club lunch in Winnipeg, after which she will make herself available to reporters.

Meanwhile, back in Quebec, Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel delivers glad tidings, in the form of fresh federal support, to community centres in Drummondville.

Finally, Senator Don Meredith marks Jamaica Diaspora Day of Fasting and Prayer at Revival Time Tabernacle in downtown Toronto, where, along with church representatives and a guest trumpeter, he'll help raise money for "two (gender specific) charities that rescue, support and empower 'at risk' youth in Jamaica."
