Welcome to my website. It has been designed to serve two purposes. First, to let you know what I’ve been working and speaking out on in my role as a member of the Senate of Canada. And second, to give you a greater understanding of the Senate’s role in our Parliamentary system.

It was a great honour to be called upon by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to serve in the Senate., after 29 years as a member of the Ontario Legislature. Thank you for visiting my website and please check back often for updates.
