Former SK premier Roy Romanow to drop by NDP caucus retreat

As New Democrat MPs heads into their second day of closed-door strategizing, Tom Mulcair is set to kick off today's session with a caucus-rallying address, with former Saskatchewan premier Roy Romanow also expected to make an appearance later this morning.

Back in Ottawa, Public Safety Minister Steve Blaney is slated to make himself available to the media following a half-day meeting with his provincial and territorial counterparts.

Elsewhere on the ministerial circuit:

  • ACOA Minister Rob Moore joins local MP John Williamson and provincial communities minister Dorothy Shepherd at the Grand Manan Whale and Seabird Research Centre, where the trio will unveil funding for two new infrastructure projects.
  • Meanwhile, Labour Minister Kellie Leitch makes her way to Prince Albert, where she will "highlight [the government's] focus on its top priorities of jobs, growth and long-term prosperity," with emphasis on "the work being done to address skills shortages," during a speech to the local chamber of commerce.
  • In Alberta, meanwhile, Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino continues his western tour with a visit to Cenovus Energy, which will serve as backdrop for an announcement on "the hiring of Veterans after their service to Canada," while in Edmonton, National Revenue Minister Kerry-Lynne Findlay reveals "new measures to crack down on tax cheats" during a stop at a local restaurant.
