Open data on Tony Clement's agenda in Toronto

Treasury Board President Tony Clement takes his open data crusade to Toronto, where he'll take part in "public consultations" on the government's "Action Plan on Open Government 2.0" at the North Toronto Public Library.

Also out and about in the Greater Toronto Area today: Etobicoke MP Ted Opitz, who will unveil new support for humanitarian assistance efforts in Somalia during an event at St. Philip's Lutheran Church.

Other events on the ministerial circuit:

    • Fisheries and Oceans Minister Gail Shea drops by the evocatively named "Government Wharf" in New Waterford with a fresh installment of federal cash for "major repair projects" throughout Cape Breton.
    • Across the causeway in Halifax, Defence Minister Rob Nicholson marks the "immediate deployment" of HMCS Toronto to the Mediterranean Sea, where it will join the ongoing NATO "reassurance measures" targeting the similarly ongoing tensions in Ukraine.
    • Back in Ontario, Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino teams up with local MP Patrick Brown and the local Rotary Club for an announcement at the site of what the advisory describes as the "Future Military Heritage Park Sign" on Lakeshore Drive.
    • Meanwhile, in Manitoba, Kamloops MP Cathy McLeod, who also serves as parliamentary secretary to Labour Minister Kellie Leitch, hosts a roundtable meeting on Maternal, Newborn and Child Health at Winnipeg's Fort Rouge Leisure Centre.
    • Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt joins local MP Rob Clarke at SNC Lavalin Architects in Saskatoon, where the pair will share the details of new support for the Aboriginal Human Resource Council.
    • Elsewhere in the city, MP Brad Trost brings glad tidings to the local chicken industry during an appearance at the Moon Lake Golf and Country Club.
    • Finally, Yukon MP Ryan Leef will be front and centre at an "important infrastructure event" at the main government administration building in Whitehorse.
