With just one week to go until his minority government unveils its first full budget in nearly two years, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will soon find out just what it will take to secure the support of at least one other party as he heads into preliminary negotiations with his cross-aisle counterparts.

According to his official itinerary, Trudeau has scheduled closed-door têtes-à-tête with Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole (11:45 AM) and Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François (3:15 PM), respectively, with similar sessions with New Democrat Leader Jagmeet Singh and Green Party Leader Annamie Paul likely to follow within the next few days.

Later this afternoon, he’ll join Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, Diversity Minister Bardish Chagger and Health Minister Patty Hajdu to “celebrate Vaisakhi” during a “virtual discussion with front-line health care workers” before signing on for an online chat with Grade 12 students at a Coquitlam high school alongside local Liberal MP Ron MacKinnon.
