(Sheila Gunn Reid guest hosts for Ezra Levant tonight.)
So Liberal MP Scott Brison is quitting. With an election coming this fall, he couldn't even stick it out till the end of his term?
Some people are speculating that he's quitting now to avoid embarrassing the government, due to his possible involvement in the trail of Vice Admiral Norman. However, Brison says he is quitting for family reasons, having just become the father of twins.
Regardless, Brison's departure prompted a cabinet shuffle.
And this is Justin Trudeau we are talking about, so it's not like he is going to put people capable of running their portfolios in place.
For instance, Jane Philpott is being shuffled out of Indigenous Services and that's good.
She's barely moved the needle on clean drinking water for First Nations on reserve, and she made herself famous by Ottawa spending $110,000 in legal fees fighting First Nations girl over a $6,000 dental procedure.
Seamus O'Regan is being shuffled out of Veterans Affairs, which is good, too.
Just a couple of months ago O'Regan told veterans that he understood what they were going through, the pain and confusion that soldiers can feel when adjusting to civilian life, because he had once been... a TV journalist who transitioned into government and he experienced what he thought was a similar shock to his system.
But that's not the worst of it...
TONIGHT I'll take you through Trudeau's cabinet shuffle in detail.
No matter who he moves to which post, Justin Trudeau's cabinet is still based on cronyism, on unwavering and uncritical loyalty, on extreme sycophancy over merit, and on meeting an arbitrary gender quota.
Because in Liberal land, looking hip at all times is better than being effective in your job.
