Minor cabinet shuffle coming with swearing in

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making a small change in his cabinet.

Rideau Hall has announced a swearing-in ceremony.

The Prime Minister's Office will not say what the change is, and Trudeau is not expected to be there in person for the ceremony.

Dominic LeBlanc has been handling double duty as House leader and fisheries minister since Hunter Tootoo stepped down from the latter job.

Tootoo resigned from cabinet in May to go into treatment for alcoholism and has since acknowledged he'd been involved in a consensual but inappropriate relationship in the workplace.
