Meet your new Indian Affairs Minister
Duncan had previously served as Strahl’s parliamentary secretary at INAC.
Strahl – who many had believed was going to be the new Government House Leader – has taken over John Baird’s spot as Minister of Transport (who in turn has taken over as Government House Leader).
Inuit Tapririit Kanatami (ITK) leader Mary Simon issued a press release congratulating the new Minister, but there has so far been no reaction from the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) or other leaders.
“I extend an invitation for us to meet as soon as possible to begin setting out an agenda aimed at building stronger First Nations and a stronger Canada.”
