One last VP pool report from smokey Vancouver:

Motorcade rolled out from the Fairmont at 11:15 am. Modest sized crowds on the streets gawked as we passed. One man even saluted while waving a miniature American flag.

En route to the airport we passed a nursery, Art Knapp Home & Garden, that was advertising "Dazzling Joe Biden Planters. 30% off." Photo attached.

Arrived at Vancouver International Airport, pulling up alongside Air Force Two at 11:43 am. VP was quickly on board, possibly for reasons apparent below. Pool saw Dr. Biden bidding farewell to the Ambassador as her grandchildren and Sasha Obama boarded.

According to the Vice President's office, the Vice President will participate remotely in the President's update from members of his national security team on the campaign to degrade and ultimately defeat ISIL.

AF2 rolling, destination is Andrews. Until later this evening.
