Premier Blaine Higgs has announced a cabinet change within his Progressive Conservative party, with one minister taking on more responsibilities.

Saint John East MLA Glen Savoie has been named the new minister of environment and climate change.

Savoie had been serving as the acting minister since Gary Crossman resigned in April.

“Glen has proven to be reliable in his current roles, and will no doubt execute his new responsibilities with due care and diligence,” Higgs said in a statement.

Savoie will also continue to serve as the local government minister and the minister responsible for la Francophonie.
