  1. If your readers would like to see live video pls see the Cnd Parliamentary Channel

    http://www.cpac.ca/en/

    This link is to the English version; Canada has two official langages the other is French. Expect that when officials switch languages you will hear a translator start to speak.

    These videos are commercial free.

    Enjoy!

  2. I am in the Central Time Zone,so that means they won’t be arriving until 6:00 pm my time.

  3. Seriously, you’re the best! This is so helpful! Do you know if there will be any time zone change or if the time zone will stay the same for all Of the engagements?
    Thank you so much, can’t wait to follow this tour!

    • My goodness, what a lovely thing to read, thank you! That is a good question, I wondered the same thing. All engagements are in the Pacific Time Zone. :)
