    A cabinet that looks A cabinet that looks like Canadalike Canada

    BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

    OTTAWA Justin Trudeau kicked off a new Liberal era Wednes-day with a 30-member cabinet that features predominantly fresh faces, an equal number of men and women and probably the most diverse line-up of ministers in Canadian history.

    The newly minted prime minister emerged Wednesday from the for-mal swearing-in ceremony boasting that hes put together a cabinet that looks like Canada.

    Fully 18 of the newly minted min-isters are rookies who won election for the first time last month, includ-ing the all-important finance minis-ter, multimillionaire Toronto busi-nessman Bill Morneau.

    OTTAWA Presented with a wealth of talent to choose from in making his cabinet, there was some political capital Prime Minister Justin Trudeau chose not to spend.

    A retired general and a former top Toronto cop were among the star Lib-eral MPs shut out of Trudeaus maiden cabinet, along with several veteran MPs.

    At the same time, relative political rookies now find themselves command-ing some of the top political posts, in-cluding National Defence, Justice and the governments signature infrastruc-ture plan.

    We have an awful lot of work to do in the coming weeks, months and years, Trudeau said after the group was sworn in.

    But I know that Canadians expect of us to come together and put forward a team that is going to be able to deliver on the change, on the ambitious plan for this country that the Liberal party ran on, and thats exactly what were going to deliver.

    Retired lieutenant-general Andrew Leslie was considered a shoo-in for a cabinet spot when he announced he was running for the Liberals, but was left out of the mix, as was former Toronto police chief Bill Blair.

    Longtime MPs, including Joyce Mur-ray and former cabinet minister Hedy Fry, were also on the outside looking in.

    Fry said she had absolutely no hard feelings.

    He matched peoples capabilities to their talents and Im looking forward to working with them, she said. What I bring to the table is a fair amount of experience and that ability to roll up my sleeves and help us to succeed.

    Murray and Fry were the lone Lib-eral MPs in British Columbia following the 2011 election, but after the partys unexpected success in that province last month, three newly elected parlia-mentarians now have seats on the front bench.

    Part of NDP climate-change plan in the forecastBY THE CANADIAN PRESS

    EDMONTON Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says her government hopes to release substantial parts of its climate-change policy about one week before she leaves later this month for a global conference in Paris.

    Notley said the provinces plan will include very significant changes that will put Alberta on what she calls a progressive and balanced path for-ward.

    We are going to do what we think we can do to improve our record in a way that not only supports Albertans but supports Albertans for generations to come, she said Wednesday.

    But we are going to also do that in a balanced way that allows the indus-try to be healthy and prosperous.

    Not only does our economy depend on this but so frankly does the whole countrys.

    The United Nations summit on cli-mate change is to take place in the French capital from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11.

    The meeting is aimed at negotiating targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions beyond 2020.

    Notley said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has talked about different provinces coming up with their own climate change plans.

    She said it remains to be seen how close Albertas targets will mesh with any federal plan.

    Notley said Albertas policy will not necessarily be the same as a province with lots of hydro power.

    We are going to do our part, she

    said.Im confident that at least at the

    outset that we will be able to establish a pretty effective partnership with the federal government on this.

    Under former prime minister Ste-phen Harper, Canada withdrew from the original Kyoto protocol on green-house gas emissions.

    Canada is currently not close to meeting its subsequent Copenhagen commitment of slashing emissions by 17 per cent by 2020.

    Judge dodges

    potential conflict of

    interest

    Judge Gordon Yake suspected an accused person looked very familiar and when defence counsel Dan Wilson told Yake his client had only one leg, Yakes suspicion was confirmed

    Yake had previously been coun-sel for David Dwayne Clark, 35. It was during Wilsons sentencing sub-missions that Yakes memory was re-freshed.

    Wilson told the court that his cli-ent would need a long period to pay a fine. He pleaded guilty to one count of breaching his recognizance. In the joint submission on penalty Wilson and Crown Prosecutor Don-na Derie-Gillespie suggested a fine of $300.

    Clark is also facing a dozen drug and weapon related charges.

    While going over Clarks personal circumstances as a recovering drug ad-dict and a recipient of Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped, Wilson mentioned that Clark had only one leg.

    Yake stopped Wilson from continu-ing his submissions and asked Clark if he had been represented by the judge before being called to the bench.

    Clark said he had previously hired Yake as his defence counsel. Prior to becoming a judge Yake was both a Crown Prosecutor and practised pri-vately in civil and criminal litigation. Yake said he had sued the federal gov-ernment with Clark for an unspecified incident that occurred at the Bowden Institution.

    Yake told the court that this put him in a conflict of interest. Noting the fine to be a small amount, he was not ada-mant that he disqualify himself from presiding over the guilty plea. Wilson and Derie-Gillespie consented to con-tinuing with Yake as judge.

    However, Yake did disqualify himself from presiding over 12 oth-er charges laid against Clark. Those charges had been the focus of a day-long preliminary inquiry on Monday in Red Deer provincial court.

    Clark is charged with numerous of-fences including possession of a con-trolled substance such as: cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, oxycodone and GHB; possession of a prohibited device and possession of a prohibited weapon.

    He was arrested on July 17, 2014, after the Red Deer RCMP and mem-bers of the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams executed a search warrant at a Kentwood area residence.

    Police said they found cocaine, her-oin, oxycodone, GHB, methamphet-amine, mace, pepper spray and three replica firearms.
