Lisa Raitt to unveil measures to ensure 'faster, more convenient' airport transit

Transport Minister Lisa Raitt celebrates the coming holiday travel crunch by teaming up with the public safety minister's parliamentary secretary, Roxanne James, at Pearson Airport, where the pair will unveil "new initiatives" that will, according to the advisory, "make transiting through airports faster and more convenient."

Back in the capital, Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel delivers fresh federal cash to not one but two local snowmobile clubs -- including, presumably,  Club motoneige de la Jacques-Cartier, where the announcement itself is slated to take place.

Meanwhile, Canadian Heritage Minister Shelly Glover heads to the west coast, where, alongside Revenue Minister Kerry-Lynne Findlay, she'll share the details of a new museum to be located at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

Later this afternoon, Findlay will drop by Ronald McDonald House British Columbia to "encourage charitable giving" over the holidays.

Also in British Columbia today: Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, who will make himself available to reporters during a mid-morning appearance at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver.

Finally, Governor General David Johnston will present the 2014 Vanier Medal -- which honours "distinctive leadership in public administration and public service in Canada" --  to Lynton "Red" Wilson, retired BCE chairman, president and CEO of BCE, Inc., and chancellor emeritus of McMaster University.
