Kent Hehr in New Federal Cabinet


Alberta Liberal Leader David Swann released the following statement on the swearing-in of the new cabinet:

“On behalf of the Alberta Liberals I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his newly unveiled cabinet. We wish this diverse and talented team all the best in the challenges ahead.

“Of course, the exciting news of cabinet is made even sweeter for Alberta Liberals by the appointment of our friend, former Alberta Liberal MLA Kent Hehr as minister of veterans affairs & associate minister of national defence. Our country, province, and the City of Calgary will be well served with Kent in cabinet.

“I would also like to send my best wishes to Amarjeet Sohi on his appointment as minister of infrastructure and communities. I know that Kent and Amarjeet, working alongside MPs Randy Boissonnault and Darshan Kang, will be strong advocates for Alberta’s interests within this new Liberal government.”
