HRDC Back Again (Sort of)

An interesting aside to all of this cabinet related news. Diane Finley becomes Minister of Human Resources and Social Development in Prime Minister Harper’s slim down cabinet. What is interesting about all of this is that the Conservatives actually supported the splitting of the former Department of Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) into the two departments of Human Resources and Skills Development (HRSD) and Social Development Canada (SDC). Yet Harper in his new cabinet has decided that this wasn’t a good idea and he is putting both departments under the privy of one minister.
