CMEDIA: Expecting an impending cabinet shuffle to take place as early as Wed Canada P rime Minister Justin Trudeau has reportedly called ministers back to Ottawa for meetings on Mon and Tue.

Among those who have reportedly been asked to return to Ottawa are: Dominic LeBlanc, currently minister of intergovernmental affairs; and Ginette Petitpas Taylor, the minister of official languages.

Several ministerial announcements scheduled for early this week have also reportedly been abruptly cancelled including events on Mon with Petitpas Taylor in Montreal, Transport Minister Omar Alghabra in Vancouver and Housing Minister Ahmed Hussen in St. John’s.

Expected to be the biggest change to Trudeau’s cabinet since October 2021, one month after the Liberals were elected to a second minority mandate, the shuffle coming ahead of a scheduled cabinet retreat next month in P.E.I. will also put the prime minister’s team in place for the next federal election.
