Wednesday, 20 November 2019 02:39 PM

TORONTO (AP) — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced his new cabinet and Chrystia Freeland is moving from foreign affairs to become deputy prime minister.

Freeland will still oversee Canada-U.S. relations and the new trade agreement with the United States and Mexico that still needs to be ratified.

Trudeau also named Freeland to be intergovernmental affairs minister on Wednesday. The role oversees relations with the provinces at a time of increasing dissatisfaction in Western Canada.

Francois-Philippe Champagne will leave his current post at Infrastructure to take over from Freeland at Foreign Affairs.

Bill Morneau remains Canada’s finance minister.
