Building a ministerial cabinet is no simple task. There are many things to consider, such as regional representation and the skills and qualifications of the MPs.

But Justin Trudeau has two problems – he has too many seats in Toronto and is committed to a “gender-balanced” cabinet.

Sam Eskenasi discusses Trudeau’s latest cabinet shuffle. 

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

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.
