Mulcair teams up with former budget watchdog Kevin Page to talk democracy on stage in Whitehorse

As the two-week parliamentary hiatus gets underway, New Democrat Leader Tom Mulcair is the first -- and, so far at least, only -- opposition leader to hit the spring pre-hustings as he heads due north to Whitehorse for a presentation on "the state of public finance and democracy in Canada" alongside former budget watchdog Kevin Page.

Elsewhere on the good news circuit, ACOA Minister of State Rob Moore pays a visit to Prince Edward Island, where he's set to dole out federal cash at Morell-based Jasper Wyman And Son Canada, while New Brunswick MP Tilly O'Neill Gordon does the same during a visit to Northumberland Co-operative in her home riding of Miramichi.

Meanwhile, the Competition Bureau (@CompBureau) will reveal the "top two scams" during a "twitter chat" to mark the second annual "2 Good 2 True Day" (#2G2BT).

Finally, later this morning in Washington, DC, Canadian and US municipal leaders and rail safety advocates are scheduled to chat with reporters following a mid-morning meeting with Canadian Ambassador to the US Gary Doer.
