New Northern Affairs Minister Represents Southern Riding

It turns out that Dominic Leblanc, the new Minister Northern and Indigenous Affairs, has joined a long line of people to hold the profile while representing a southern riding.

 

Leblanc, who was born in Ottawa and represents a riding in New Brunswick, took over the role recently during a cabinet shuffle by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

 

He took over the profile from Carolyn Bennett, who was born in and represents an upper-class riding in Toronto.

 

There are at least three Liberal MP’s currently representing northern regions including the Northwest Territories and Yukon.
