Freeland Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hussen Minister of Immigration

On January 10, 2017, Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced the following changes to the Ministry:

  • Chrystia Freeland, currently Minister of International Trade, becomes Minister of Foreign Affairs, and retains the Canada-U.S. relations file, including trade relations.
  • Maryam Monsef, currently Minister of Democratic Institutions, becomes Minister of Status of Women.
  • Patricia A. Hajdu, currently Minister of Status of Women, becomes Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour.
  • François-Philippe Champagne, currently Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance, becomes Minister of International Trade.
  • Karina Gould, currently Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Development, becomes Minister of Democratic Institutions.
  • Ahmed D. Hussen becomes Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.

CBC reported that the shuffle allows Trudeau to move perceived strong ministers into roles that are critical to the relationship with Trump Administration while addressing some of the weaker performers.

  1. Hussen is a know nothing? You refer, of course, to a man who was selected to serve on the Harper government’s Cross-Cultural Roundtable on Security.

  2. Trudeau has called Muslims to get memberships in the Conservative Party … as he said, he needs their help again .

  3. Freeland is media person with a definite bias against Russia. Hussen could be a bit slanted also…

  4. Pako Dallaire, you don’t get out much, do you.
    Muslim != Muslim Brotherhood

    But for the sake of argument let’s say that it did. Then the Harper approved Conservative candidate Abdi Abdul would also be a member. So is Harper now a ‘Muslim sympathizer’ or maybe even a ‘closet Muslim’? Yes? No?

    If you are going to act racist, at least try to be consistent.

  5. Why doesn’t it “seem right”? Doesn’t seem right wing, maybe.

  6. He is member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
