QUEBEC CITY, Que. — Quebec’s former Minister of Public Safety, Serge Menard, has been named to the transport post vacated by Guy Chevrette who resigned yesterday ahead of today’s cabinet shuffle.

Chevrette, Natural Resources Minister Jacques Brassard and a third much-more junior minister, science and technology boss David Cliche, all announced they would leave politics yesterday.

Menard, who represents Laval-des-Rapides, is a lawyer who has been both a prosecutor and a criminal lawyer, in addition to being a onetime law professor.
