Inside Policy, December 2017: Policy-maker of the year
MLI names the Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould as “Policy-Maker of the Year”
OTTAWA, ON (Dec. 18, 2017): Canada’s Justice Minister and Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould has a mandate from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that covers a particularly wide and important range of issues – from marijuana legalization to Indigenous reconciliation to justice reform. She is one of the busiest, most active members of Cabinet.
The Macdonald-Laurier Institute is pleased to name Minister Wilson-Raybould as the “Policy-Maker of the Year” in this issue of Inside Policy.
Kate Heartfield points out in the cover story: “If Justin Trudeau’s Liberals want to make a lasting impact on Canadian society, the justice file is key.” Notably, Minister Wilson-Raybould is the first Indigenous person (and first woman) to hold that position. As Ken Coates notes, she is “the most influential Indigenous federal politician in Canadian history.”
