Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has shaken up his cabinet in preparation for the Donald Trump administration in Washington.
The main change was moving Toronto M-P 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.
