Tory MPs attend 'important infrastructure events' in NB, SK and BC

As the week winds to a close, so, too, does the ministerial good news circuit, it seems, with just two events deemed by the Prime Minister's Office to be sufficiently "notable" to make it into the advisory email sent nightly to reporters. 

A quick scan through the press gallery-compiled itinerary, however, reveals that several Conservative MPs are also slated to be out and about throughout the day:

    • Minister of State for ACOA Rob Moore joins Fredericton MP Keith Ashfield, New Brunswick Transport Minister Claude WIlliams and Albert MLA Wayne Steeves for an "important infrastructure event" at Coverdale Centre in Riverview.
    • Elsewhere in the province, Mike Allen "celebrates" the opening of a new affordable housing development in Grand Falls.
    • Meanwhile, West Nova MP Greg Kerr is slated to take part in three separate events in his home region, starting in Hebron, where he will mark the launch of a new"initiative" aimed at "south western Nova Scotia," followed by a stop in Church Point to share the details of a new "investment" to "improve the design of a trail on the shores of Saint Mary's Bay," and finally, a "celebration of upgrades to the recreational infrastructure" at the Cape Forchu Lighthouse.
    • Back in Ontario, Kyle Seeback is set to hold a "round table meeting" with representatives from the Brampton Caribbean community.
    • House of Commons Speaker Andrew Scheer attends another "important infrastructure event" at the Pilot Butte water treatment plant.
    • On the west coast, Minister of State for Seniors Alice Wong delivers federal funding to the Tonari Gumi Japanese Community Volunteers Association in Vancouver
    • Finally, Colin Mayes represents his government at a third "important infrastructure event," this time in Malakwa, where he'll make an appearance near the local bridge.
