Shelly Glover named new Canadian Heritage minister in Harper cabinet shuffle

Shelly Glover, an MP from Manitoba who had been parliamentary secretary to the minister of finance, is the new Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages as a result of the shuttle of the cabinet of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the elevation of eight new ministers, four of them women. Glover replaces James Moore, who has been promoted to Industry, one of the government's senior keystones.

As Heritage Minister, Glover will be responsible for the shepherding of the Canada Periodical Fund and other policies that directly impact the Canadian magazine industry.

Glover is the MP for Saint Boniface in Winnipeg and was first elected in 2008.
