London, Iqaluit, Gaspesie and Sidney: Federal leaders hit the road

September 2, 2014

In what will likely be his final major trip before the House reopens later this month, Prime Minister Stephen Harper heads off to London for two days of trade-related meetings before making his way to Cardiff, where NATO leaders are expected to gather later this week.

Meanwhile, New Democrat Leader Tom Mulcair kicks off his Northern tour with a stop in Iqaluit, where he'll join Northern Quebec MP Romeo Saganash for a town hall this evening.

Also northward bound today, albeit not quite as far: Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau treks to Gaspésie et des Îles, where he's slated to go behind closed doors to meet with local students and tour the E. Gagnon & Fils Ltée fish and seafood plant before he hits the stage at a Chamber of Commerce-organized evening event in Bonaventure.

Elsewhere on the leaders' front, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May holds a town hall in Sidney.
