Canadian PM Justin Trudeau unveils revamped cabinet

OTTAWA: Justin Trudeau gave his cabinet a major overhaul Tuesday as he gears up to rapidly deliver on his top priorities for his Liberal minority government during his third term as prime minister.

The new cabinet is a slightly larger lineup that adds nine new faces, drops three and moves most other senior ministers to new posts.

In one of the biggest moves, Harjit Sajjan, heavily criticized for his handling of sexual misconduct allegations in Canada’s military, is leaving the defence portfolio to take up a new post in international development.

Anita Anand, who led the charge to procure vaccines during the pandemic as public services and procurement minister, will take over at trouble-plagued National Defence, only the second woman to head that post.

 Here is a breakdown of who has what ministerial position:

  • Chrystia Freeland, deputy prime minister and minister of finance
