More 'celebrations', site visits on the ministerial itinerary

Minister of State for Science Ed Holder continues his Atlantic Canadian tour at the Universite de Moncton, where, for the second day in a row, he'll "celebrate" a "significant investment" in scientific research -- this time, alongside local MP Robert Goguen, and after touring a lab in the physics and astronomy department.

Back in Ontario, Minister of State for FedDev Ontario Gary Goodyear will join Brampton MP Parm Gill at the Wild Wetland Splash and Pool, a facility that, the advisory points out, is supported by federal recreational infrastructure money.

Later this afternoon, Goodyear will team up with York Centre MP Mark Adler during a visit to Plitron Manufacturing, a company that "has helped benefit the local economy."

Also out and about in the Greater Toronto Area: Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino and Minister of State for Finance Kevin Sorenson drop by Woodbridge-based Earth Rangers with fresh support for Canada Summer Jobs "program recipients," while in Northern Ontario, Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford announces new "investments" while "consulting with local stakeholders" in Kapuskasing.

Meanwhile, in Manitoba, Minister of State for Social Development Candice Bergen doles out cash earmarked for "skills training and job opportunities for youth" during a visit to a Winnipeg-based community service organization.

Elsewhere in the province, International Development Minister Christian Paradis will "discuss Canada's continued leadership in prompting global nutrition" while taking part in a round table hosted by the Canadian Foodgrains Bank in Arnaud.

Finally, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification Michelle Rempel heads to Prince Albert for a joint appearance with provincial legislative secretary Fred Bradshaw at the Atrium forest centre, where the pair will share the details on new support for "forestry export readiness."
