PM Trudeau shuffles federal cabinet – August 31, 2022

August 31, 2022 at 8:02 am  Federal, Politics



Governor General Mary Simon presides over the swearing-in of federal ministers in a ceremony at Rideau Hall as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau makes changes to his cabinet. Ministers Helena Jaczek and Filomena Tassi are exchanging roles, with Jaczek becoming minister of public services and procurement and Tassi taking over as the minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario. The change comes as Tassi faces some family health challenges.

Following the ceremony, the prime minister and ministers respond to questions from reporters, including inquiries about health-care funding negotiations with the provinces and about recent incidents in which high-profile women politicians and journalists have faced harassment and threats.
