Morden, MB – Today, Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shuffled his cabinet.  He made several changes, but one that has not been talked about is the removal of Winnipeg MP MaryAnn Mihychuk from cabinet.


"It’s clear that Manitoba is an afterthought for this Liberal Government” said Candice Bergen.  "Not only are municipalities struggling to get answers because there is no Manitoba regional Minister, now there is one more Toronto voice and one less Manitoba voice at the Cabinet table.” 


Several new Ministers were appointed and promoted, including Ontario’s Patty Hajdu, who notably spent over $1 million to renovate her office.


"The failures of the Liberal Government are Justin Trudeau’s responsibility.  Changing the faces around the cabinet table will do nothing to make life more affordable for ordinary Canadians” concluded Bergen.
