The Review

Jim Wilson, MPP Grey Simcoe to retire

Posted On: Thursday, September 24, 2020

September 24, 2020 - Although I have been discussing my intentions with family, friends and constituents for months, I have today formally informed the Simcoe-Grey Progressive Conservative Riding Association that I will not be seeking the party nomination to run as their candidate in the next Ontario provincial election; nor will I run as an independent candidate. I have asked the Association to establish a Candidate Search Committee and begin the process of reviewing potential candidates for the next election.

Jim Wilson, MPP Grey Simcoe to retire

It has been my privilege and pleasure to have represented the riding for more than 30 years. I am grateful for the support shown me since I was first elected in 1990, and returned to the legislature with healthy pluralities in seven subsequent General Elections. In that time, our region has experienced significant growth, and I have done my best in government, in opposition and independently to ensure that the province delivered the services and infrastructure our families, businesses and communities need to succeed and prosper into the future.

In the coming months I will continue to fight in the Legislature for the priorities constituents have told me are most important. Topping the list are advancing the proposed redevelopments of the Collingwood and Alliston hospitals, improved and more health care options for our senior citizens, and fair access to the drugs and services needed by vulnerable citizens, in particular young people living with Cystic Fibrosis. I will continue to advocate on behalf of the businesses that employ our residents and contribute to our community’s prosperity. As always, the well-being of individuals and families will guide my actions. 

I want to congratulate Premier Ford, and my colleagues in his government, for the exceptional work they are doing leading Ontario’s response to the most challenging health crisis the world has seen in generations. Together we can defeat COVID-19. 

I do not know what is in store for me personally in the years to come. Be assured that I will always have the best interests of Simcoe-Grey in mind and will continue to contribute in any way that I can. 

Thank-you everyone for your help and support. I am honoured and humbled. 


Please accept my best wishes.
