Kathleen Wynne in Edmonton for a Council of the Federation meeting
Kathleen Wynne and her fellow premiers and territorial leaders are in Edmonton for a Council of the Federation meeting.
They're scheduled to meet with Indigenous leaders today, but that meeting is up in the air.
Three of the five First Nations groups have said they'll boycott the meeting because they feel they should be part of the full Council of the Federation.
The council members will meet on Tuesday and Wednesday with much of the discussion expected to focus on the renegotiation of the NAFTA accord and the legalization of recreational marijuana.
Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard has also said he wants to discuss his constitutional initiative
The CHL Import draft is underway and with the 13th overall pick the IceDogs have selected Swedish D-Man Timothy Liljegren. Liljegren stands 6'1" tall, weighing in at 191lbs and was Toronto's first round selection, 17th overall at last weekend's NHL entry draft.
The IceDogs pre-season schedule has been announced with four exhibition games beginning September 1st, featuring home games in both Thorold and Beamsville. Barrie and Kitchener will provide the opposition in preparation for the 2017-2018 regular season.
A second member of the IceDogs sees his NHL dream become a reality as Ben Jones is drafted by the Vegas Golden Knights. Jones was chosen in the 7th round, 189th overall by the expansion Golden Knights in the NHL entry draft.
