McDonell is hard at work


Recently elected MPP for SD & SG, Jim McDonell made an appearance in Williamsburg on November 25th for the Williamsburg Non-Profit Housing Corporation’s ribbon-cutting ceremony.

In a free moment, the Leader was able to speak with McDonell about his time in Toronto. He revealed, “there’s lots of reading to get up to speed.”

As for the environment, he said, “people are friendly and helpful.”

“You need alliances on both sides of the house. Friendships cross the party line. We have the same goals, just a different way of getting them done. Everyone is there for the right reason.”

“It’s busy though. They’re talking in the House about sitting at night now.”

As for residents in SD&SG, McDonell has an office in Cornwall on Montreal Road. Right now, he said, “we’re getting organized. We’re starting to bring some of the concerns of the residents to the government.”
