Wall adds 3 new faces to Saskatchewan cabinet
Moe, Campeau, Docherty join cabinet for 1st time, Harrison returns
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall has revamped his cabinet, adding four ministers, dropping four and changing some portfolios.
Brand new to cabinet are Jennifer Campeau (central services), Mark Docherty (parks, culture and sport) and Scott Moe (environment).
Returning after a two-year absence is Jeremy Harrison, who becomes associate minister of the economy responsible for trade, tourism, innovation and immigration..
They were sworn in Thursday at Government House.
A cabinet shuffle had been expected for a while after several high-profile ministers, including Rob Norris, Ken Krawetz and June Draude announced they would not be running in the next general election, expected in 2016.
Although Krawetz remains as finance minister and deputy premier, Norris and Draude are now out of cabinet.
Also out is Randy Weekes, formerly minister responsible for rural and remote health, and Ken Cheveldayoff, formerly environment minister.
The number of people in cabinet remains the same: 18, including Wall.
For the newcomers, it means added duties as well as a pay bump of $48,198. The salary for a regular MLA is $94,668.
