Justin Trudeau—ahem, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau—was officially sworn in Wednesday. With that came the announcement of his cabinet—a much-anticipated one, especially after Trudeau had insisted half of Canada’s top political leaders would be women. As it turns out, Vancouver is receiving decent representation as well, as three of the top jobs are going to members of parliament representing Metro Vancouver ridings. Here they are (in the order they are pictured above):Jody Wilson-Raybould (Vancouver Granville), whom we had already predicted would be offered a cabinet position. Wilson-Raybould will serve as justice minister and attorney general. The 44-year-old former Crown prosecutor and ex-regional chief of the Assembly of First Nations was, after all, personally recruited by Trudeau. She will be an incredibly important voice for First Nations going forward.Carla Qualtrough (Delta), Canada’s new minister of sport and persons with disabilities. Qualtrough, who has been visually impaired since birth, was previously a human rights lawyer and former vice-chair of B.C.’s Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal.Harjit Sajjan (Vancouver South), who will be Canada’s new defence minister. Sajjan, who moved to Canada from India at age five, is a former cop and soldier who eventually rose to the rank of commander of the British Columbia Regiment (Duke of Connaught’s Own)—making him the first Sikh to hold that position.
