BREAKING: Justin Trudeau unveils new federal cabinet

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unveiled in his new cabinet on Wednesday afternoon.

Justin Trudeau and members of the new Liberal cabinet attended a swearing-in ceremony at Rideau Hall on Wednesday afternoon.

Several key positions have been shuffled since the Liberals held a majority prior to the 2019 election. Before today’s unveiling, Trudeau confirmed that the cabinet would be gender balanced.

This year’s cabinet was slightly larger than the 34 ministers appointed in the past with a total of 36 ministerial positions. The new appointments will offer a glimpse into what the 43rd parliament of Canada will have to offer to Canadians in the near future.

Facing a minority government situation, ministers will likely have to work across party lines. It is yet to be seen how the appointments will address issues such as pipeline development and feelings of western alienation.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
