Multiculturalism and Canadian Identity in one night!

Helena Guergis, Secretary of State (Foreign Affairs and International Trade) (Sport), hosted six visiting Afghan female MPs at a reception in the Lester B. Pearson foreign affairs building during International Women’s Week.

Jason Kenney, Secretary of State (Multiculturalism and Canadian Identity), was able to fulfill his full mandate. He did the multiculturalism thing at the reception for the Afghan MPs…

…then Kenney headed over to Hy’s steakhouse where Tory MPs Rahim Jaffer (Guergis’ fiancée) and James Rajotte co-hosted a reception for the Brewers Association of Canada.
