Bay Area cabinet ministers get new roles

Local Trudeau cabinet ministers will remain in the inner circle but with new jobs. Burlington MPP Karina Gould is now Minister of Families, Children and Social Development. Her former portfolio of international development has been given to Harjit Sajjan who also assumed responsibility for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada. Sajjan’s shuffling out of Defence was seen as a foregone conclusion in the wake of the high-level military sex scandals that have dominated the news in the past two years. Hamilton West-Ancaster-Dundas MPP Filomena Tassi has moved from Labour to the Procurement ministry, which played a key role in obtaining Canada’s COVID vaccine supplies. The former Minister, Oakville’s Anita Anand, who was seen as a strong performer in the Procurement portfolio now takes over the tricky Defense job. Marci Ien, who once worked as a reporter at CHCH TV in Hamilton, before going on to a lengthy career at CTV has been named Minister of Women, Gender Equality and Youth.
