New Provincial Advanced Education Minister -- Lethbridge West M-L-A Greg Weadick
Lethbridge: Our province's new Advanced Education Minister is Lethbridge West MLA Greg Weadick. He takes over the portfolio from the departing Doug Horner, who will resigned so that he could seek the leadership of the provincial P-C's when Ed Stelmach leaves the position.
The Premier shuffled his cabinet to fill vacancies left by those seeking to replace him.
There were also appointments to fill other vacancies. Treasury Board president Lloyd Snelgrove has assumed Ted Morton's duties as Finance Minister since he stepped down last month.
Wetaskiwin backbencher Verlyn Olson is the new justice minister, replacing Alison Redford who resigned Wednesday to run for the Tory leadership.
As well, Cal Dallas from Red Deer, replaces Doug Griffiths as parliamentary assistant for finance.
