TORONTO — Ontario's new education minister is a 32-year-old who worked as deputy director of communications under former prime minister Stephen Harper.

Premier Doug Ford promoted Stephen Lecce, MPP for King—Vaughan, to the portfolio Thursday. Lecce replaces Lisa Thompson after a turbulent year in the ministry. He did not hold a cabinet portfolio previously, but served as parliamentary assistant to Ford and two ministers.

"We added some fantastic talent to the table that's going to help us move the agenda forward, my friends," the premier said at a press conference.
