Canada’s Trudeau to reshuffle cabinet, appoint new foreign affairs and innovation ministers

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau plans to reshuffle his Cabinet on Tuesday and appoint new ministers for foreign affairs, transportation and innovation, sources and national media said Monday.

Three sources with direct knowledge of the matter said Trudeau may make a limited reshuffle of his cabinet Tuesday morning.

The sources said Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains’ decision to leave politics after the next election prompted Trudeau to reshuffle his cabinet. The sources requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Foreign Affairs Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne will replace Bains and Transportation Minister Marc Garneau will replace him, according to the CBC and Global News.
