Steve Blaney to provide update on 'high-profile human smuggling case

Elsewhere in Ontario, Minister of State for Fed Dev Ontario Gary Goodyear joins local MP David Tilson fpor a tour of Bolton-based Multivans Inc., where the pair will "see first-hand the return on a federal investment."

Also out and about today:

    • Minister of State for Western Diversification Michelle Rempel teams up with local MP Chris Warkentin in Grande Prairie, where the duo will share the details of a new initiative to provide "access to skilled labour in the oil and gas" - and, apparently, forestry -- "sectors."
    • Meanwhile, Transport Minister Lisa Raitt drops by the Nanaimo Airport with a fresh load of federal cash.

Finally, Minister of State for Sport Bal Gosal is in Glasgow, where he's slated to be front and centre at a press conference hosted by Commonwealth Games Canada.
