Christy Clark unveils her 'renewed' cabinet

Kelowna-Lake Country MLA, Norm Letnick, is B.C.'s new minister of agriculture.

Premier Christy Clark is calling it a cabinet "renewal." But it looks an awful lot like a good old fashioned shuffle. The premier has appointed some new cabinet ministers, after several high profile minIsters announced they won't be running in the next election.
