(#8, 2016) MINISTER OF JUSTICE & ATTORNEY GENERAL OF CANADA
Law and Order When Justin Trudeau announced his inaugural cabinet, he handed Jody Wilson-Raybould—a former Crown prosecutor and regional chief of the BC Assembly of First Nations—the fraught justice ministry. In the past year, the rookie Vancouver–Granville MP has had to stickhandle two of the Liberal government’s most challenging campaign promises: setting up anational inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and drawing up legislation for the legalization of marijuana. The MMIW inquiry is mandated to produce a nal report by the end of 2018. The new pot law, meanwhile, is set to come into e£ect next July—though o¤cials across Canada have expressed concern about the feds’ hands-o£ approach.
