PM calls premiers to autumn meeting to reduce internal Canadian trade barriers

Liberal MP Bill Blair is congratulated by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after being sworn in as minister of border security and organized crime reduction during a ceremony at Rideau Hall in Ottawa

Another curious change was the shuffle of Dominic LeBlanc from Fisheries and Oceans to Inter-Governmental Affairs, Northern Affairs and Internal Trade.

Joly, who struggled at times in her role as heritage minister, was shunted to tourism, official languages and la Francophonie.

Jim Carr - The Manitoba MP's move from natural resources to global trade comes at a time when Canada desperately needs to find new trading partners given the uncertainty around NAFTA and as the Canada-EU trade deal faces increasing resistance across the Atlantic. His appointment as infrastructure minister is instead being viewed as a lateral move at best given that Sohi had already done much of the heavy lifting on the file.

Carr's job will be to kickstart Canada's stalled efforts towards a trade agreement with China, promoting the Canada-EU free trade agreement among European countries that have yet to ratify it and continuing to push for deeper economic integration into Latin America. Amarjeet Sohi, who was serving as infrastructure minister, takes over the crucial natural resources portfolio. Provincial elections are also looming in Alberta and Quebec that could result in governments opposed to Trudeau's agenda, even as the Liberals continue to face resistance from B.C. over the Trans Mountain pipeline.

"I'm reminded of the very first conversation I had with Bill Blair, years ago when I was asking him to think about running for the Liberal Party of Canada".

The newcomers include Bill Blair, who was named minister of the new portfolio of border security and organized crime reduction.

Bill Blair rises during Question Period in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Friday, May 25, 2018.

Ontario and the GTA - The Liberal cabinet got more Ontario-centric with the addition of Ng, Blair and Hamilton MP Filomena Tassi as minister for seniors.

At the moment, there's also risk the Ottawa-Ontario relationship could be severely strained over key issues, including the federal carbon-pricing plan and management of the migrant influx. Before entering politics, Blair worked for 39 years with the Toronto police and served as chief between 2005 and 2015.

Carla Qualtrough remains Minister of Public Services and Procurement but is being given the additional responsibility of Accessibility. She had been deputy whip of the Liberal caucus.

Wilkinson, a Rhodes Scholar, has a background in the energy and environmental technology sectors.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay, Labour Minister Patty Hajdu, Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor and Status of Women Minister Maryam Monsef all have events scheduled for Wednesday. Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland is in charge of ties with the United States, including NAFTA.

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act stipulates in a margin note on the Justice Canada Laws web page that the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness is responsible for administration of the act in relation to examinations and entry ports, enforcement of the act, including arrest, detention and removal, and establishment of policies regarding enforcement of the act and "inadmissibility on grounds of security, organized criminality or violating human or worldwide rights".

Previously, Mr. Trudeau had appointed himself as the minister of Intergovernmental Affairs so, in effect, he has fired himself from this position. Ontario, the country's most populous province, just ushered in Doug Ford, a populist conservative, as premier, while other provinces look set to swing right in the coming months.
