Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder will head to Canada this week to discuss energy production.
Kinder leaves the country Tuesday and will dine with with Consul General Georges Rioux and Alberta Energy Minister Mel Knight. On Wednesday and Thursday, he'll tour the Foster Creek Energy Facility and attend meetings with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers and the Energy Pipeline Association.
He'll take personal days on Friday and Saturday and return to Missouri on Sunday.
Meanwhile: Gov. Jay Nixon's office says the Governor has not yet returned from his overseas trip. A spokesman did not release his whereabouts Monday.
Kinder's trip to Canada and the uncertainty of Nixon's return date could leave both top state officials out of the country at the same time.
