MacKay, Raitt hit the ministerial good news circuit in Cape Breton

Justice Minister Peter MacKay kicks off the post-Canada Day ministerial circuit in Cape Breton, where, armed with federal cash from ACOA Minister of State Rob Moore, he's slated to share the details of new funding initiatives in Port Hawkesbury, Judique and Inverness.

Elsewhere in the region, Transport Minister Lisa Raitt joins her Nova Scotia counterpart for an "important announcement," which will be delivered against the backdrop of the gazebo on the Cape Breton side of the Canso Causeway and Swing Bridge.

Meanwhile, Canadian Heritage Minister Shelly Glover spends the day in Victoriaville, where she'll start her day by demonstrating her government's support for two local "enterprises" before paying a visit the Maison Wilfrid-Laurier historical site.

Finally, in Edmonton, Health Minister Rona Ambrose drops by Homeward Trust with a fresh installment of assistance for people who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless.
