Milloy takes on Government Services after Takhar resigns from cabinet

Government Services Minister Harinder Takhar has resigned due to medical issues, but officials say he will continue to serve as an MPP.

A source says he had chest pains before his mother’s funeral on May 4th and went to hospital, but still managed to make it to the funeral.

Takhar’s sudden illness prompted Premier Kathleen Wynne to reshuffle her cabinet yesterday.

Government House Leader and Kitchener-Centre MPP John Milloy takes on Takhar’s government services portfolio, while Finance Minister Charles Sousa will act as chair of the management board of cabinet.
