PM heads to Vancouver for his first public appearance of 2014

The PM kicks off the new year with a visit to the West Coast, where he'll take part in a Q&A hosted by the Vancouver Board of Trade before heading off to the Burnaby Village Museum to pose for pictures alongside local(ish) MP and provincial political minister James Moore. (The museum itself, it is, perhaps, worth noting, is located in Burnaby-Douglas, which is currently held by New Democrat Kennedy Stewart, who does not appear to be on the invite list for today's event.)

Meanwhile, back in Ontario, Treasury Board President Tony Clement will take his open data evangelism to Hamilton, where he will, according to the advisory, "discuss with Mohawk College students and technology enthusiasts how they can use Canadian data to spur economic growth through innovation."
