An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
MOST OF the attention on yesterday’s federal cabinet shuffle has been on the exit of Stephane Dion and John McCallum and the rise of Chrystia Freeland.
Freeland, to be sure, is an up and comer, well-qualified to take on her new role as Minister of Foreign Affairs after negotiating a difficult deal with the European Union last fall when she was International Trade Minister.
And the departure of Dion and McCallum, two long-serving veterans, emphasizes Justin Trudeau’s focus on youth.
But the boot given to Maryam Monsef is the move that most interests me.
