UPDATED - Muzzled scientists, military history top today's political agenda

Leading off this week's ministerial circuit is Canadian Heritage Minister Shelly Glover, who will head to the Canadian War Museum this afternoon to reveal her government's latest plans for the commemoration of "the two World Wars"

Meanwhile, back on the Hill, former Museum of Civilization archaeologist Dr. Patricia Sutherland will take questions from reporters on 'The Silence of the Labs', a CBC fifth estate investigative report on the alleged muzzling of scientists by the federal government, which aired last week.

UPDATE: According to the organizer, Sutherland's press conference, which was originally scheduled for this afternoon, has been cancelled. 

Finally, Minister of State for Finance Kevin Sorenson joins his Toronto caucus colleague Ted Opitz for pre-budget consultations at the Etobicoke Civic Centre.
