Originally published: June 19,2017

Nova Scotia women are making progress in politics and business, but more work needs to be done.

Premier Stephen McNeil’s new cabinet lineup, sworn in Thursday, includes veteran Karen Casey — who has previously served as minister of education (in Liberal and Progressive Conservative governments) and minister of health (as a PC) — as deputy premier and minister of finance.

Patricia Arab moves from the backbench to minister of internal resources and Communications Nova Scotia. Kelly Regan is minister of community services, responsible for status of women. Lena Diab remains minister of immigration and Margaret Miller is minister of natural resources.
