QUEEN’S PARK, Ont. — Gary Stewart has made the transition to the Ontario provincial government’s inner circle as of yesterday.

Stewart, the driving force behind a bill that would allow the trucker training industry to clean up its act and eliminate licensing mills, was sworn in to Cabinet as chief government whip and deputy government house leader.

Mike Harris, the Premier, appointed Stewart, age 63, after the resignation of Frank Klees. Stewart was first elected to the legislature in 1995.
