Cabinet shuffle

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has shaken up his cabinet in preparation for Donald Trump’s administration in Washington.

The main change was moving Toronto MP Chrystia Freeland from international trade to global affairs replacing Stephane Dion. Freeland will be responsible for dealing with Trump as he brings his America-first approach to Washington. She is also expected to take a hardline when it comes to Canada’s relations with Russia.

Also appointed was Toronto MP Ahmed Hussen to Immigration. He was born in Somalia.
