PM Trudeau Shuffles Cabinet in Wake of Bill Morneau’s Resignation

In a ceremony at Rideau Hall, Governor General Julie Payette presides over the swearing in of Chrystia Freeland as minister of finance and Dominic LeBlanc as minister of intergovernmental affairs. Freeland is the first woman to hold Canada’s federal finance portfolio. She retains the role of deputy prime minister. LeBlanc retains his position as president of the Queen’s Privy Council. This cabinet shuffle comes following Bill Morneau’s announcement that he is leaving federal politics. (August 18, 2020)
