By Randall Palmer and David Ljunggren OTTAWA (Reuters) - Liberal leader Justin Trudeau will kick off his majority government with some controversy as he is sworn in as Canada's 23rd prime minister on Wednesday by naming an equal number of men and women to a slimmed-down cabinet. Trudeau, the first son of a prime minister to take office in Canada and the second-youngest in the country's history at 43, has grabbed international attention for his good looks and crowd-loving approach to politics. During the campaign, a senior Liberal Party member wrote a confidential email later leaked to media saying that the cabinet would be cut from 39 members and could go as low as 25.
