MPP Jim McDonell, Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry

Lord, we want to thank You for Jim McDonell’s desire to serve the province of Ontario. We pray that he serves with grace and compassion and that his voice is heard amongst those who hear him. We pray for favour and wisdom to rest over his life as he carries out his responsibility of caring for his constituents as well as all those who live in Ontario. May the choices he makes honour you and bring to light Your plan for those You love. Amen

Jim McDonell was born and raised on a dairy farm in Glengarry County. After graduating in Mechanical Engineering from Queen's University, he worked with Bell Canada for 32 years in planning, engineering and supervisory roles. Jim has been actively involved in the community for over 27 years, dedicating his time to the Williamstown Fair, the Char-Lan Minor Soccer and Minor Hockey Associations, the Glengarry Kinsmen Club, and the Glengarry Border Hockey League. Jim and his wife Margie live in South Glengarry Township where they raised their family of three.
