Saskatchewan Cabinet Shuffle

Lorne Calvert, the Premier of Saskatchewan, has made a small change in his cabinet.

On Friday, Regina Elphinstone-Centre MLA Warren McCall was sworn in as minister of corrections and public safety.

He replaces Regina Dewdney's Kevin Yates, who has been in cabinet since February.

This had led to all sorts of speculation by the media, the bloggers and others that this is all about Leadership and Yates and Calvert not being able to get along.

I know that we all all loathe to take politicians at face value, but until we hear otherwise, why can
no one assume that Mr. Yates is actually stepping down for personall reasons?

I have no inside information at all, but why couldn't there be an illness in the family or something that would force him to resign?
