If Brian Pallister's last set of changes to Manitoba's cabinet before stepping down as premier was a shuffle, Premier Heather Stefanson changed the whole deck on Tuesday.
In sweeping changes to the ministerial landscape in the province, only two ministers kept their jobs while the rest either got new jobs or left cabinet entirely.
In Brandon, Spruce Woods Progressive Conservative MLA Cliff Cullen is out as education minister and has been appointed as the new deputy premier and minister of economic development.
Brandon West MLA Reg Helwer is still in charge of the province's civil service but has lost his position as infrastructure minister in favour of becoming the new minister of labour, consumer protection and government services and minister responsible for the Public Utilities Board.
Two more Westman MLAs were also added to cabinet.
Agassiz Progressive Conservative MLA and Eileen Clarke returns to cabinet as minister of municipal affairs after resigning from her post as Indigenous relations minister last year following controversial statements by Pallister over reconciliation and colonialism.
In Turtle Mountain, PC MLA Doyle Piwinuk has been lifted from the backbench as minister of transportation and infrastructure.
The third new addition to cabinet is Lagimodiere PC MLA Andrew Smith, the new minister of sport, culture and heritage as well as the minister in charge of Travel Manitoba and the Manitoba Centennial Centre Corporation.
While Health Minister Audrey Gordon is keeping her role, the mental health and wellness file has once again been split off and given to Sarah Guillemard. The seniors file has also been split off from health, with Scott Johnston now in charge of the Department of Seniors and Long-term Care.
Former premier Kelvin Goertzen, who led the province between Pallister's resignation and Stefanson becoming leader of the PCs, has been shuffled from being deputy premier to being minister of justice and attorney general and the minister responsible for Manitoba Public Insurance.
He remains government house leader.
Former justice minister Cameron Friesen is now minister of finance and minister responsible for Manitoba Hydro. Departing the finance role is Scott Fielding, who is now minister of natural resources and northern development as well as minister responsible for Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation.
Jeff Wharton, who was minister of Crown services, is the new minister of environment, climate and parks and minister responsible for Efficiency Manitoba.
For the education file, Wayne Ewasko is taking over from Cullen as minister of education and early childhood learning.
He departs the advanced education file, now being taken over by Jon Reyes — formerly minister of economic development and jobs — as minister of advanced education, skills and immigration.
The new minister of Agriculture is Derek Johnson, who is moving on from municipal relations.
Minister of Families and Minister responsible for francophone affairs Rochelle Squires is continuing on in her position while also assuming the roles of minister responsible for the status of women and accessibility.
Finally, Alan Lagimodiere remains in place as minister of Indigenous reconciliation and northern relations.
Two minister have departed cabinet, former agriculture minister Ralph Eichler and former minister of sport, culture and heritage Cathy Cox.
Premier Stefanson is set to address the media on the cabinet shuffle at 2:30 p.m.
