Lisa Raitt invites Toronto media on 'streetcar tour'

Transport Minister Lisa Raitt returns to Toronto for what the advisory bills as an "important infrastructure event" at Hillcrest Complex, with her Ontario counterpart Steven Del Duca and Toronto Transit Commission Chair Maria Augimeri also slated to be in attendance.

Although the notice provides no further details on the nature of the event, it does advise interested reporters that it will take place outside, and include "a streetcar tour."

Elsewhere on the ministerial good news circuit:

    • Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt teams up with New Brunswick Premier David Alward to "celebrate the official opening" of an affordable housing project in Edmundston.
    • Canadian Heritage Minister Shelly Glover heads to the Surrey Arts Centre, where, alongside local MP Nina Grewal, she'll hand out fresh cash for British Columbia's "arts and culture sector."
    • Finally, in Vancouver, Minister of State for Seniors Alice Wong shows her government's support for seniors by delivering new funding for an initiative launched by First United Church.
