Three federal cabinet ministers have new titles as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shuffled his inner circle to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Jody Wilson-Raybould.

Lawrence MacAulay, former minister of Agriculture, takes over Veterans Affairs, while Marie-Claude Bibeau leaves International Development and assumes the agriculture post.
Minister for Women and Gender Equality Maryam Monsef adds International Development to her duties.
Wilson-Raybould resigned as Veterans Affairs minister over the SNC-Lavalin affair.
She only held the job for a month after being moved there in a mid-January shuffle following the resignation of Scott Brison.
The prime minister has maintained Wilson-Raybould would still be justice minister and attorney-general if Brison had not stepped down.
She disagrees and feels she was moved out after not giving into pressure from Justin Trudeau and others to help the Montreal engineering giant avoid criminal prosecution.
