Justin Trudeau returns to the boxing ring in Halifax

As his end-of-summer East Coast continues, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is set to return to the boxing ring this afternoon in Halifax, where he he will, according to the advisory, "spar" with Halifax entrepreneur and former competitive boxer Mickey MacDonald during a photo-op at Palooka's Executive Fitness, which is one of several local businesses owned by MacDonald.

The pair will also meet with "local youth" involved with Family SOS.

Before that gets underway, however, Trudeau will stop by Lunenburg for a closed-door chat with unspecified municipal leaders on "major issues facing the region."

Out and about on the ministerial circuit today:

    • Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford meets with his provincial and territorial counterparts in Sudbury.
    • Back in Toronto, Canadian Heritage Minister Shelly Glover delivers glad tidings to CIVIX, a national charitable organization that "provides experiential learning opportunities to help young Canadians practice their rights and responsibilities as citizens."
    • Finally, Minister of State for Science Ed Holder drops by the University of British Columbia's Accel-RX to unveil what the notice is billing as "a significant investment in commercialization centres across Canada."
