More weight to the sinking ship.

That sums up Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli’s response to the cabinet shuffle at Queens Park.

He says there are several questionable choices and the cabinet is too large with 30 members making it the biggest in the country.

He was asked about the new minister of Energy Glenn Thibeault one of 7 new members.

Fedeli says he will reserve judgement on Thibeault until November when we will find out there will be an increase in hydro rates.

Fedeli says the government spends more than a billion dollars on interest.

He says they spend money on limos for a bloated cabinet and at the same time they’re cutting funding for nurses.

Fedeli says the three red flags in the new cabinet are Liz Sandals as President of the Treasury Board, Bob Chiarelli in Infrastructure and Michael Coteau in Children and Youth Services.

There are 3 northern members in the cabinet including Thibeault in Energy, Michael Gravelle in Northern Development and Mines and David Orazietti in Community Safety and Correctional Services.
