Trudeau set to shuffle cabinet Wednesday

The moves also look to reinforce possible weak spots. Trudeau called Trump's decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on Canadian metals "frankly insulting" and confronted the United States president during the G7 summit in Quebec.

A Nanos Research poll released on Tuesday put the Liberals at 37 percent and the Conservatives at 35 percent, indicating that if an election were held now, Trudeau would end up with a weakened minority government. Over the coming months, there's potential for more conflicts if Quebec and Alberta elect right-leaning governments of their own.

The Winnipeg MP, who previously led the outward-looking Business Council of Manitoba, is taking on the job of Canada's top travelling salesman as the country chases a goal it has pursued in fits and starts for 45 years: diversifying its trading relationship beyond an undue reliance on the United States.

Some such as former Canadian ambassador Ferry de Kerckhove would like to see Trudeau work with allies to take a more assertive stand with Trump when it comes to defending shared values, which he argued is easier now than ever with North American free trade talks having stalled.

Champagne's former department has therefore been renamed as the ministry of worldwide trade diversification. He will be charged with promoting the Canada-European Union trade agreement to other E.U. countries that have not yet ratified it, and restart efforts to create a trade agreement with China.

Five members of the canadian Parliament from the liberal party was first included in the Cabinet.

Perhaps the prime minister believes they've been successful to date, despite continuing trade skirmishes with the United States, tax proposals for small businesses from which the government has largely retreated and outstanding issues regarding cannabis regulation and assisted dying.

Filomena Tassi, a Hamilton MP and former high-school chaplain, assumes the new cabinet file dedicated to the needs of seniors.

Ng has served behind the scenes, working for Liberal provincial ministers at Queen's Park and then directing Trudeau's appointments in Ottawa after the 2015 election.

Mandate letters for the new ministers are expected later this summer.

Several familiar faces - including Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc, Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains and Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi - were on the move, sources told The Canadian Press on condition of anonymity. The prime minister left key posts like finance and foreign affairs unchanged, ensuring a continuity of ties with Donald Trump's administration.

"They're failing in trade, they're failing in pipelines, they're failing in infrastructure and as a result those ministers have been moved to other portfolios - this is desperate attempt to hit that reset button", Raitt said.

Justin Trudeau is resetting after a rocky year dented his chances of re-election.

Raitt also said she's concerned about Ottawa's decision to have LeBlanc - whom she described as "extremely partisan" - and Blair deal with the provinces.

There were Liberal governments in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces. "He will oversee important pipeline projects, including the completion of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project".
