TORONTO, Ont. — Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty is expected to unveil a new-look Cabinet today, which will likely include a new Transportation Minister.

News reports today suggest Donna Cansfield will be replaced as Transport Minister by former Tourism Minister and House Leader, Jim Bradley. Bradley is among the Liberals most experienced and respected members of Cabinet. He has served as interim leader of the Liberal Party in 1991 and 1992. He has also served as Environment Minister. Its expected that Cansfield will receive a new portfolio.

Also expected to be displaced is Environment Minister Laurel Broten. As Environment Minister, Broten ushered in a controversial plan to ban waste oil heaters and she was publicly chastised for her plans to build a massive two-storey garage.

Chris Bentley, the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, and a key player in approving Ontarios apprenticeship program for professional drivers, will reportedly take on the role of attorney general.

McGuinty will formally introduce his new Cabinet later today.
