QUEEN’S PARK, Ont. — Ontario’s new Premier, Ernie Eves, has put his stamp on Cabinet with a major shake-up. However Brad Clark will remain as the province’s Transportation Minister.
Eves’ cabinet shuffle saw many right-wingers pushed aside to make room for centrists, like himself. Five of the six most important cabinet portfolios are now the responsibilities of new ministers.
