BREAKING: Premier John Horgan has revealed a new slate of cabinet ministers who will lead B.C. through the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the economic fallout.
Not including the premier, the 24-person cabinet is half women and half men. Four of the full ministers are either Indigenous or people of colour, as are three of the four ministers of state.
COMING UP LIVE: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, public health officials and cabinet ministers will give an update on COVID-19 in Canada. Trudeau is set to speak at 11:30 a.m. ET, other officials at 12 p.m. ET.
Former Cabinet ministers won't be worrying about IPSA u-turning on MPs' pay rises. Mays given another £45,500 speech, and Sajid takes on a £1,900-an-hour gig for an AI Software provider in California. (A firm indication he's not about to become No. 10's Chief of Staff)
Cabinet Ministers meet this morning to discuss their options, ahead of a decision later in the week on how to exit level five.
In light of today’s developments, I am regretfully forced to ban all cabinet ministers from appearing on @GMB until further notice. Only exceptions will be those who didn’t publicly support Cummings breaching a lockdown that the Govt forced on the rest of us ‘to save lives’.
The Prime Minister, backed by all his most senior cabinet ministers, said Cummings didn’t break lockdown rules, which is why he didn’t have to go. The Police have now concluded that he did. Either fire your adviser @BorisJohnson - or your Govt’s credibility is destroyed.
A Cabinet of sycophants & inadequates compelled to promote public health guidelines brazenly flouted by the Prime Minister’s own father & most senior aide. What a mess.
Telegraph says six cabinet ministers have told colleagues they want Cummings gone. Yet none of them will say so publicly. What a bunch of pathetic spineless toads.
Michael Gove is trending No1 in the UK. It’s because nobody believes a word he’s saying. So many cabinet ministers are destroying their own reputations at the altar of saving a lying, hypocrite adviser. Quite extraordinary.
Cabinet ministers rushing to publicly support Cummings breaking the Govt’s own lockdown rules just about sums up their collective moral bankruptcy & fridge-hiding, accountability-avoiding cowardice. The public won’t stand for this shameful hypocrisy, whoever they vote for.
Re Cummings press event, a note to Cabinet Secretary and to chair of the lobby. 1. Cummings, an unelected adviser, should not use same venue/format as ministers/scientists. 2. As it is personal he should not be associated with any government messaging related to the crisis. 1/3
Eddie Mair invited the seven Cabinet ministers who previously criticised the proroguing of parliament on to his show, but all seven refused. So how was he going to fill that time? ??? @eddiemair | #Prorogation
