Harper Cabinet Shuffle – Jay Hill to be promoted

Advertisement

Several sources now say Prince George/Peace River MP Jay Hill will be promoted today.

They say he’s been tabbed by Prime Minister Harper, in a major cabinet shuffle, to be the new Government House Leader… meaning he would become the Tories unofficial parliamentary general responsible for devising strategies for winning key Common’s votes.

It’s a particuarly crucial role in a minority government, since it involves opposition arm twisting on every potential confidence vote.

Meantime, Quebec MP Lawrence Cannon is expected to get the vacant Foreign Affairs portfolio but, three key jobs are likely to remain in current hands. Peter Mckay is expected to continue as defence minister and, Mr. Harper is also expected to opt for stability, in the face of the global economic crisis, leaving Jim Flaherty and Jim Prentice in place, as the ministers of Finance and Industry.
