As Trudeau reshuffles Canada’s cabinet, a number of ministers are let go

By 07/26/2023 4:43 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff


On Wednesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will unveil a significant Cabinet reorganization as he gets his team ready for the upcoming federal election.

Trudeau is dismissing a number of Cabinet members, including the ministers of transportation and public safety, Marco Mendicino and Omar Alghabra. Before a ceremony to swear in new ministers, Medicino, Algabra, and a number of other people verified the actions.

In the areas of procurement, heritage, fisheries, the military, and justice, new ministers were also anticipated.

The next election, which must be held by October 2025 but may be called earlier, has at least four ministers out after they declared they wouldn’t run.

According to polls, the opposing Conservative Party is ahead of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. When he initially won in 2015, Trudeau channeled the star power of his father, the late Prime Minister and Liberal icon Pierre Trudeau. However, after eight years in office, scandals and economic inflation have taken their toll.

As part of his legacy, Trudeau encouraged immigration at a time when the United States and other nations were closing their borders.

Additionally, he made child care more affordable, legalized cannabis on a federal level, and enacted a carbon tax to combat climate change. Additionally, he kept the U.S.-free trade agreement intact.

Chrystia Freeland, the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, will continue in both positions. The departing public safety minister, Mendicino, congratulated the prime minister and declared that, despite being removed from the Cabinet, he would run in the following election.

Mendicino recently came under fire for the way his agency handled the transfer to prison of a known serial killer.

The prime minister and the 38 members of the Cabinet make up the present administration.

The gender balance in the Cabinet will also likely be equal, a trend that Trudeau has continued since his election in 2015.

A stable minority government under Trudeau is supported by the opposition New Democrat party, which leans left. Both parties have enough seats in the House of Commons to pass legislation.

“A prime minister often reshuffles his Cabinet towards the midpoint of a term. According to Nelson Wiseman, a political science professor at the University of Toronto, the scope of the shift is exceptional.

“The Liberals under Justin Trudeau have been on the back foot for some time. The new ministerial titles and the altered makeup of the Cabinet won’t change that. Wiseman does not anticipate a quick election.

The average tenure of a prime minister during the previous 75 years has been around ten years. Trudeau is getting close to that point.

It is extremely doubtful that he will be able to gain a majority in any future elections after failing to do it two times in a row, he added.
