My Take: By Michael Boriero

It’s certainly not uncommon for premiers and prime ministers to shake up their cabinet, whether it’s bringing in new blood or sending a message to underperforming MNAs.
But there’s something odd about surprising Quebecers with a shuffle early in the summer, especially when that shuffle includes moving your health minister to a limited role as co-education minister.
We are just three months into a pandemic that brought the world to a standstill. Danielle McCann may not have done everything right, but she used the limited information available to her to make difficult decisions.
This is a key juncture in our province’s recovery, as the regions slowly reopen, so replacing McCann for Christian Dubé based solely on strong managerial skills is questionable.
He boasts an impressive resume, but will he be able to step in competently and seamlessly? I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
