Ontario Premier Doug Ford has reorganized his cabinet following the resignations of two ministers this week.
Monte McNaughton, who has held the position of labour minister for the past four years, announced his departure from the government to pursue opportunities in the private sector. In response, Ford has appointed David Piccini, the former environment minister, as the new labour minister.
Furthermore, Andrea Khanjin, the representative for Barrie-Innisfil, has been promoted to cabinet and will now serve as the environment minister.
Filling the vacancy of the minister of public and business service delivery, which stemmed from Kaleed Rasheed’s resignation from cabinet and the Progressive Conservative caucus, Todd McCarthy has been appointed to the position. McCarthy was recently named the associate transportation minister in a previous mini cabinet shuffle prompted by the resignation of Steve Clark as the minister of municipal affairs and housing.
Vijay Thanigasalam, the representative for Scarborough-Rouge Park, has been appointed as the new associate transportation minister.
