Trudeau departs from traditional cabinetmaking thinking on gender, regional representation

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made good on a campaign pledge by continually boasting a gender-equal cabinet, while also forgoing the practice of naming regional ministers.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau poses with new Health Minister Ginnette Petipas Taylor, centre, and Governor General David Johnston, left, after she was sworn-in to the federal ministry in late August. Mr. Trudeau has orchestrated two major cabinet shuffles during his tenure as prime minister, which have both ensured an even gender split and done away with regional ministers.
