British Columbia Premier John Horgan has made changes to his cabinet, filling a vacancy and swapping a few portfolios.

Anne Kang has been appointed minister of citizens’ services, replacing Jinny Sims, who resigned from her post last October amid an RCMP investigation into allegations that haven’t been made public.

Sims has said she is confident her name will be cleared.

Michelle Mungall and Bruce Ralston have traded portfolios with some job exceptions.

Mungall has been appointed the minister of jobs, economic development and competitiveness, which was formerly the cabinet post of minister of jobs, trade and technology.

In her new role, she will continue to promote B.C.’s technology sector.

Ralston is now the minister of energy, mines and petroleum resources, with priorities to support the government’s CleanBC initiatives.

He will also oversee the Crown utility BC Hydro.
