When Doug Ford's government was sworn in at the end of June, I watched as a parade of mostly rookie cabinet ministers read the oath of office.

Having seen dozens of these kinds of ceremonies, I immediately started wondering which ministers in this Progressive Conservative government — the first in 15 years — would make for the most interesting stories.

There were some obvious choices. Caroline Mulroney, Laurie Scott, and John Yakabuski were all second-generation politicians. Plus, Yakabuski had spent his entire 15-year career as an MPP on the opposition benches, never getting a sniff of the government side. His father, Paul, had almost exactly the opposite experience: 24 years at Queen's Park with only two years in opposition.
