Looking to build momentum heading into the 2019 federal election, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has shuffled his cabinet.
Six ministers have new portfolios and five members were added along with a new seniors portfolio.
Dominic LeBlanc moves from fisheries to take on intergovernmental affairs and Melanie Joly moves from the heritage portfolio to tourism, official languages and la Francophonie.
Montreal M.P Pablo Rodriguez, takes over heritage, Toronto’s Bill Blair is the new minister of border security and organized crime reduction and Hamilton’s Filomena Tassi will head the new seniors portfolio.
Regina–Wascana M.P Ralph Goodale retains his portfolio of Public Safety and Emergancy Preparedness.
Congratulations to all my Cabinet colleagues who have assumed new responsibilities today – looking forward to our work together.
