OTTAWA May 17 Canadian Prime Minister Stephen
Harper will announce his new cabinet on Wednesday, officials
said, although Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is widely expected
to stay in his job.
The biggest question is whether Industry Minister Tony
Clement will stay in that position.
Clement is currently reviewing a proposal by the London
Stock Exchange (LSE.L) to buy TMX Group (X.TO), the operator of
the Toronto Stock Exchange.
Harper will unveil the new cabinet at 11:15 eastern (1515
GMT). He has five senior cabinet positions to fill after the
May 2 election, when the Conservatives won a majority of seats
but some ministers were not reelected.
The vacant posts are at foreign affairs, transport,
veterans affairs, the treasury board and intergovernmental
