Trudeau Introduces His First Cabinet Shuffle!

]

When in doubt, shake-up the cabinet! As predicted, given his troubles with pay-for-pay, electoral reform and the rest, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has decided to break in the new year by giving his cabinet a shuffle. Six ministries are playing musical ministers. Take a look at how it all shakes out below.

François-Philippe Champagne. HE WAS Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance, BUT NOW he’s Minister of International Trade.

Chrystia Freeland. SHE WAS Minister of International Trade, BUT NOW she’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Stephane Dion. HE WAS Minister of Foreign Affairs, BUT NOW his next move is uncertain. Possibly ambassadorship to E.U. and Germany. 

Karina Gould. SHE WAS Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Development, BUT NOW she’s Minister of Democratic Institutions.

Maryam Monsef. SHE WAS Minister of Democratic Institutions, BUT NOW she’s Minister of Status of Women.

Patricia A. Hajdu. SHE WAS Minister of Status of Women, BUT NOW she’s Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour.

MaryAnn Mihychuk. SHE WAS Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, BUT NOW she’s just MP for Kildonan—St. Paul

Ahmed D. Hussen. HE WAS a backbencher, BUT NOW he becomes Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.

John McCallum. HE WAS Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, BUT NOW he’s going to be Canada’s ambassador to China. 

We’ll talk about the implications of this changing of the guard on this week’s Open Sources Guelph.
