OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty will stay in his job, as expected, after the federal government shuffle later on Wednesday, a government source said.

“Flaherty stays,” the government source told Reuters.

A new cabinet will be announced at 11:15 a.m., and five senior cabinet positions need to be filled after the May 2 election, when the Conservatives won a majority of seats but some ministers were not re-elected.
