OTTAWA — The Prime Minister's Office is confirming Julian Fantino has been shuffled out of his position as veterans affairs minister after less than 18 turbulent months.

In a quiet ceremony today at Rideau Hall, Fantino was replaced in the post by Erin O'Toole, a southern Ontario MP and former member of the Royal Canadian Air Force.

However, Fantino — a tough-talking former police chief who represents the strategically important riding of Vaughan, north of Toronto — remains in cabinet as associate minister of defence
