Dear God, we pray for MPP Jim Wilson, that he would be effective in his service to the people of Simcoe-Grey. We pray as well that You would give him strength for the many tasks in his community and legislative work. May he have knowledge and understanding for all the things he must do today. Watch over and protect him and his family. Amen.
Jim Wilson was first elected to the Ontario Legislature in 1990. In July 2014, he was elected by his PC Caucus colleagues as Interim Leader of the Party and Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition. In May 2015, he was selected by PC Leader Patrick Brown to serve as Interim Leader of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition in the Ontario Legislature.
At Queen's Park, Jim has served his province as Minister of Health, Minister of Energy, Science and Technology, Minister of Northern Development and Mines, and Minister of the Environment.
As Interim Leader of the Party, Jim has been a determined steward: reaching out to communities all across Ontario and preparing the office for his successor. Jim is lauded for his strength in spurring Opposition forward with an impressive level of tenacity and intelligence, building momentum for the provincial election in 2018.
Raised in Alliston and a resident of Wasaga Beach, Jim's family has lived in Simcoe-Grey for more than 200 years; a riding he continues to proudly serve as their unwavering Member of Provincial Parliament.
