In addition to growing the pharmacy’s operations, Jeff was actively involved in numerous local charitable and not-for-profit organizations.

Jeff’s hard work continued in this new role and he was responsible for the creation of “Ryan’s Law” legislation while a member of the Official Opposition that sets standards of care for children attending Ontario schools requiring the use of asthma medication. He has served in various roles in government including PC Health Critic, Natural Resources and Forestry Critic, Transportation and Auto Insurance Reform Critic, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, and is currently the Minister of Transportation. Jeff continues to be a trusted advocate for local concerns in Elgin-Middlesex-London.
