Eye On Olympia

Oh, that Vancouver…

In another bit of international diplomacy, Gov. Chris Gregoire and top staff are headed tonight to Victoria, British Columbia, for a dinner and day of meetings with BC Premier Gordon Campbell and his staff.

On the agenda: border security, mutual aid in emergencies, public health and pandemics, economic development and the 2010 Olympics (in B.C.), early learning and crystal methamphetamine.

Gregoire is making a full-court press internationally, recently hosting the Chinese and Mexican presidents, traveling on official visits to Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and pitching Washington software, coffee, aircraft, crops, wines and other products.
