WINNIPEG — Brian Pallister became Manitoba’s 22nd Premier Tuesday morning.

Some notable positions include Modern-Winkler MLA, Camerson Friesen, as the new minister of finance. Long running Steinbach MLA, Kelvin Goertzen is Manitoba’s new minister of health and the house leader. And Tuxedo MLA, Heather Stefanson is the minister of justice and the deputy premier.
