Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell has announced he will be retiring June 1.

“I have truly enjoyed serving as our community’s MPP for the past decade, and I have been blessed by a wonderful family, especially my wife Margie and a group of colleagues who have supported me in my work,” said Mr. McDonell. “I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish locally and across Ontario under the leadership of Doug Ford with a great team at Queen’s Park. However, the time has come to pass the torch and to enjoy the next chapter of my life closer to home.”

A former South Glengarry mayor, he has been MPP since October 6, 2011.
