Wireless reveal to kick off BC-centred ministerial good news circuit

It's a West Coast-centric edition of the ministerial circuit today as no fewer than four federal ministers hit the good news hustings in British Columbia.

Headlining today's events: Industry Minister James Moore, will is scheduled to make a mid-morning announcement on the wireless market --- and specifically, according to the advisory, "consumer choice and better services" -- in Vancouver, while in Victoria, Minister of State for Science and Technology Greg Rickford stops by the University of Victoria with a fresh load of federal cash earmarked for scholarly research -- this time, in the area of marine and ocean science.

Also out and about on the west coast today: Labour and Status of Women Minister Kellie Leitch delivers glad tidings, in the form of a government cheque, to the Surrey Women's Centre Society for a project to combat violence against women, and Minister of State for Social Development Candice Bergen shows her government's commitment to helping persons with disabilities during a visit to the Neil Squire Society in Burnaby.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, ACOA Minister of State Rob Moore has back-to-back events in Charlottetown, where he'll start the day by doling out federal support for Somnu BioScience Inc, and then make his way to a nearby hotel for a lunch date with the local chamber of commerce.

Finally, back in BC, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May takes her town hall tour to Mayne Island.
