Grande—Prairie Wapiti MLA Travis Toews is back as finance minister after Premier Danielle Smith announced her new cabinet.
Joining Toews is Central Peace—Notley MLA Todd Loewen, who was announced as the new Minister of Forestry, Parks and Tourism. No seats in cabinet for the other Peace Region MLAs, with Grande Prairie representative Tracy Allard, and Peace River MLA Dan Williams both finding themselves without a portfolio.
Premier Danielle Smith says she is thrilled to be working with a cabinet full of what she calls a strong, determined and united group of MLAs.
“Alberta’s future is bright – but there’s a lot of work to be done. Our team will work every day to gain your trust, make bold changes and continue to build the most innovative, entrepreneurial and welcoming province in the world. I want to thank our entire team for their tireless dedication to Albertans and we’re looking forward to the days ahead,” she adds.
