PM Harper, Justin Trudeau in Toronto for Aga Khan Museum opening

Fresh off last night's appearance at the United for Ukraine gala, Prime Minister Stephen Harper spends a second day in the Greater Toronto Area, where he'll team up with His Highness the Aga Khan to celebrate the official opening of the Ismaili Centre and Aga Khan Museum.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is also scheduled to attend the opening ceremonies for the new museum, after which he'll make his way to Markham to kick off the Liberal Party of Canada (Ontario) annual general meeting.

Elsewhere on the opposition front, New Democrat Leader Tom Mulcair treks from Edmonton to Brooks, where he's slated to give a "presentation on politics" to middle grade students at Ecole du Ruisseau.
