Premier Ford’s seasoned cabinet ministers are ready to go

Views: 45

The last cabinet Premier Wynne presided over had three cabinet ministers of South Asian descent, Premier Doug Ford has none. But then again, despite having a record number of candidates from ethnic backgrounds, it must be pointed out that many lack the qualifications and experience required for handling complex issues. It is clear that Premier Doug Ford is more interested in results as opposed to creating a cabinet that reflects diversity and little else.

Here is a list of Premier Ford’s 21-member cabinet:
• Peter Bethlenfalvy (Pickering, Uxbridge) – President of the Treasury Board
• Raymond Cho (Scarborough, Rouge River) – Minister for Seniors and Accessibility
• Steve Clark (Leeds, Grenville) Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing
• Christine Elliott (Newmarket, Aurora) – Minister of Health and Long-Term Care and Deputy Premier
