Summer grilling with Canada's party
[PoliticsWatch updated 5:15 p.m. June 28, 2007]
OTTAWA — Barbecued burgers, chicken, fish, salmon and veggie dogs are all on the menu this summer for Canada's five political party leaders.
Just when you thought it was safe to go to the barbecue, the
party leaders all plan a busy summer that will include meeting Canadians
on the barbecue circuit and at cultural events.
One location that will get special attention is Quebec where three
by-elections are expected to be held this summer and where four of the party leaders will
obviously spend time.
