“In a changing economy, our plan is about making sure everyone has a fair shot at getting ahead. That’s why it is also important to me that this updated cabinet continues to reflect both the diversity and the geography of our province. I am deeply grateful to our outgoing ministers — Deb Matthews, Liz Sandals and Brad Duguid — for their commitment to the people of Ontario and for all they have contributed at the cabinet table over the years. And I am pleased they will all be staying on as MPPs, continuing to dedicate themselves to their constituents and to the work of this government.”
