Trudeau taps Melanie Joly to be Canada’s 5th top diplomat in 6 years

“There is an issue with the remarkable turnover in the role, and it’s an issue because it’s a position … that has a steep learning curve,” said Roland Paris, a University of Ottawa professor who previously advised the Trudeau government on foreign affairs.
