Harper to shuffle cabinet

New environment minister included in changes

Prime MInister Stephen Harper will shuffle his cabinet Tuesday afternoon in a move a PMO spokesperson has confirmed will include naming a replacement for Jim Prentice as environment minister. In a post on Twitter, Dmitri Soudas described the looming shuffle as “small” and wrote that it was in the spirit of “staying the course with a competent team.” Government House Leader John Baird, who held the environment post before Prentice, took over for Prentice after the Alberta MP resigned to take a job with CIBC. It’s expected Baird will be relieved of the environment portfolio in the shuffle.
