Political shuffle
Water experts pool resources

Political shuffle
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is shifting his cabinet ministers around for a second time in less than a year. Some of his predecessors have played political musical chairs twice in one year but those moves were to deal with ministerial resignations - not the case here. A number of SFU experts can help flesh out what Harper is up to, why and whether his changes are wise ones:

  • Patrick Smith, political science, 604.291.1544 (home)
  • Doug McArthur, public policy, 778.782.5208 (w), 604.786.0016 (cell),
  • Gary Mauser, political marketing/business, 604.936.9141 (h),
  • Robert Gordon, criminology, 778.782.4042 (w), 604.418.6640 (cell)
  • Neil Boyd, criminology, 778.782.3324 (o),
