WHEN PRIME MINISTER Trudeau shuffled his cabinet August 28th, much of the news centred around the creation of an extra minister involved in aboriginal affairs, and former TV host Seamus O’Reagan moved into Veterans Affairs.
Veterans have long been crying out about how poorly they have been treated, and they need to have something done to relieve their needs. Whether O’Reagan is the man for the job remains to be seen.
But the gem of the entire shuffle might be the increased role to be played by Carla Qualtrough, the MP for Delta.
