And what exactly does the Associate Minister for Affordable Housing do?

The Alberta government just announced the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing (Ray Danyluk) is taking a trip to Toronto and New York to see first hand what initiatives have been undertaken to deal with homelessness and housing.

The Minister will be joined by his Deputy Minister, the Assistant Deputy Minister of Housing, and the Minister's Executive Assistant. But he won't be joined by Yvonne Fritz, Associate Minister of Affordable Housing and Urban Development.

Wasn't the whole point of appointing a new Associate Minister, just so she could focus on Affordable Housing? Shouldn't she be the one on this trip?

So this either means the extra ministry is superfluous and a waste of taxpayer dollars or the minister won't delegate his taxpayer-paid trip to NYC to his associate.
