During a cabinet shuffle on Wednesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that former Toronto Police Chief, and current Liberal MP, Bill Blair had become the minister in charge of the newly created Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction portfolio.

The appointment comes as the federal Liberals stave off criticisms from some opposition and provincial leaders who have accused the government of being too meek on the issue of irregular border crossers. Blair's new role will also once again put him face-to-face with Ontario Premier Doug Ford, with whom he had a tumultuous relationship dating back to when he confirmed the existence of a tape showing the premier's late brother, former Toronto mayor Rob Ford, smoking crack.

Here's a look back at the beef between Blair and Ford, a long-standing feud that will making dealing on this topic awkward to say the least.
