MacKay may miss title

As an expected Cabinet shuffle looms, speculation has spread that Defence Minister Peter MacKay may lose his job just before he becomes the longest-serving defence minister in Canada's history, the Chronicle Herald reported. The deadline is tight. If Mr. MacKay can stay on top until the end of July, he will steal the title from Art Eggleton, who served from 1997 to 2002. Mr. MacKay may be given another Cabinet job for Justice or Foreign Affairs.
