A new record! Almost every single prediction was wrong!!!! Hooray for me. Skelton did infact leave the cabinet. All of my ministerial guesses were wrong. The only area where I was right was that no one who moved in January was re-moved.
In case you've not seen it elsewhere...
O'Connor moved out of Defence to Revenue while Revenue minister Carol Skelton moved out of the cabinet.
MacKay moved to take Defence, while Bernier took his job at Foreign Affairs and Prentice took Industry, Strahl took Indian Affairs, Ritz (a junior minister) took Agricutlure and Diane Ablonczy finally, sort of, joined cabinet as junior minister for small business and tourism (Ritz's old job).
Finally two ladies did the old switcharoo with Oda going to International Cooperation and Verner to Heritage.
