Air Force Two was wheels down in Vancouver at 11:55 am local time.

The VP & Dr. Biden deplaned before pooler, and were meeting the following on tarmac:

Ambassador Bruce Heyman
Consulate General Lynne Platt
Minister James Moore, Minister of Industry and Regional Minister for British Columbia.

The party moved on to a holding pen to greet a dozen or so staff from the U.S. consulate. From your pooler's vantage point I heard some cheering as the group was in pump-up mode before tonight's game.

"Go USA," VP said to the group after greeting them individually, pumping his fists in the air. "Four hours, we're ready!"

It wouldn't be a VP trip like this without some grandkids along for the ride. Natalie and
Hunter Biden, Beau's two children, and Maisy Biden, one of Hunter's daughters and a soccer player herself, are here with their grandparents.

Also traveling with the Bidens: First Daughter Sasha Obama.

Motorcade en route from the airport at 12:12 local.

You've likely seen the tweet from the Bidens sent mid-flight but here's a link.
