By the time this show airs, the grand ceremony will be over. Canada will know who is in the first Liberal Cabinet of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The buildup has been a novelty of sorts due to the change in power. A bigger numerical majority in the House of Commons than the one it replaced. Members from every province and territory. Pledges of gender parity and regional representation. A whopping 150 rookies out of 184 MP's. How will the promise of a smaller Cabinet actually play out compared to the bloated reward/threat system we have supposedly done away with.

So many promises, so little time. Senate. Surveillance. Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women. Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Scuttling of the F-35 disaster. Trans-Pacific Partnership. Citizenship. Refugees. International reputation. Climate change. Employment Insurance. Long-form census. Scientific freedom. Democratic and electoral reform. Retirement age rollback to 65. Veterans Affairs. Marijuana.

We will look at who made the cut as Ministers and what they now face to deliver what was sold as the Liberal platform. Tune in, join the chat, call in and input on the "new" Canadian future.
