11 0


Ministers and MPPs have taken their oaths at Queen's Park, ready to start off a new legislative session.

It was a day of pomp and circumstance, ministers-to-be filing into the legislature, friends and family watching.

Newstalk 1010 gave you a peak into some of the changes being made to Kathleen Wynne's cabinet on Monday.

While Deb Matthews remains as Deputy Premier but she will move to head up the Treasury Board, in charge of tightening up spending and negotiating public sector deals. She says she's tough enough to do it.

There is a new Associate Minister of Finance specifically in charge of an Ontario-based pension plan. It goes to another cabinet rookie - Mitzie Hunter. Hunter says she was honoured to be put in this role.

Glen Murray gets what seems to be a demotion, moving from Transportation to Environment. Murray denied he was angry with the change. Wynne says there are no bad seats at the cabinet table.

Kathleen Wynne: Premier; Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs
