The new team

The Right Honourable Stephen Joseph Harper is now Canada's 22nd prime minister. Like most new prime ministers, he has downsized his cabinet – from 37 to 27 ministers. Safe bet: the number will creep upwards, if his government lasts long enough. Surprises: David Emerson has pulled a belinda to become minister of International Trade. Michael Fortier, one of Harper's campaign managers, will be Public Works minister, provided, one assumes, that he wins a seat in a by-election.
