Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak recently appointed Jim McDonell, MPP for Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry (SD&SG) as the Ontario PC Critic for Consumer Services.
McDonell said he was humbled by the appointment and eager to get to work to deliver the change families have asked for after eight years of Dalton McGuinty. The Ontario PC Cabinet will focus on new initiatives and new ideas to make Ontario the economic leader in Canada.
"This appointment will allow me to address the issues that matter most to the residents of Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry, as well as those of the Province of Ontario," said McDonell.
"Families want a change in direction to create jobs and rein in government spending before it is too late. With Jim McDonell as our next critic for consumer services, Ontario families know they'll have an Opposition Critic ready and able to hold Dalton McGuinty to account and get government focused on what matters most - job creation and responsible spending," said Hudak.
McDonell served as Mayor of South Glengarry for eight years before being elected MPP for SD&SG. He is a retired professional engineer from Bell Canada.
