Monday’s cabinet shuffle is expected to be very small, involving the fewest possible number of changes needed to fill the void left by veteran Nova Scotia MP Scott Brison‘s resignation from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s front bench.
It will not, however, simply be a matter of plugging one hole. Brison’s departure creates two gaps in the cabinet lineup – Nova Scotia’s seat and president of the Treasury Board – and filling both will create a domino effect that’s expected to involve at least two other ministers.
