Justin Trudeau signals new style in 1st address as Canada’s 23rd prime minister

Trudeau’s front bench will include a mix of fresh faces and political veterans, and fulfils his promise to have an even number of men and women.

"It’s a historic day for women," said Sheila Copps, a long-time Liberal cabinet minister and deputy prime minister to Jean Chrétien. "Gender parity in the national cabinet is huge. It sends a great message to our daughters and sons."
