Why the Ontario Liberals might shuffle their cabinet soon

Originally, the rumour was that it would happen before Christmas. Then it was that it would be before their party gathers for its annual general meeting in late January – a theory that was complicated this week by the convention being postponed until March.

While the possible timeframe keeps shifting, Ontario Liberals continue to speculate about the prospects of pre-election cabinet shuffle. And there are at least a couple of good reasons why the rumour won’t go away – and why, even though Premier Kathleen Wynne’s officials deny it will happen, it seems to at least remain a live discussion.
