(Owen Sound) -
A fundraising dinner is being held Friday night in Owen Sound with one of the powerful ministers in the Stephen Harper cabinet.
Fresh off unveiling a second Omnibus budget bill, Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is the guest speaker.
On Friday, M-P's agreed to split off the pension issue from the government's giant omnibus budget bill and then immediately voted to pass it.
Flaherty -- the M-P for Whitby-Oshawa -- and his wife, MPP Christine Elliott, will be at the Tory fundraiser for MP Larry Miller and Bruce Grey Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker.
Elliott will also speak at Friday's dinner.
It is being held at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound beginning at 6 PM.
