Earlier than heading to Hamilton to kick off a pre-sitting cupboard huddle, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will spend the morning in Toronto, the place, in line with his itinerary, he’s booked in for a morning go to to an unnamed “quantum computing and software program firm” (9:30 a.m.) alongside Innovation Minister François-Philippe Champagne, who can even be a part of him for a post-tour media availability. (10:15 a.m.)
Later this morning, he’ll meet up with FedDev Ontario Minister — and Hamilton-area MP — Filomena Tassi at a “native restaurant,” after which he’ll drop off the radar till he arrives on the venue for the three-day retreat, which formally will get underway this night. (5:30 p.m.)
The ministerial meetup “comes as Canadians proceed to really feel the monetary pinch of greater than a yr of heightened inflation, and now, with an economic system many count on to dip right into a recession this yr,” Canadian Press notes.
