Breakfast Meeting

Where have we been? Where are we now? And what are the approved plans for the future. Gary Carr will give us a non-political insight into the functions and visions of Halton Region, the impact on “us” as residents of Halton, and the enhanced services, such as integrated transportation, that we may expect in the future to alleviate gridlock.

Gary served as a Progressive Conservative member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1990 to 2003. He was chosen as Speaker in 1999 and our club was honored to have a guided tour of the Assembly by him and see him in action. He was well known as an impartial Speaker who did not hesitate to criticize his own Government. Gary also played professional hockey with farm teams of the Boston Bruins and Quebec Nordiques. He was the All Star goalie with the Memorial Cup Champions, the Toronto Marlboros, in 1975.

Gary was elected Chairman of Halton Region in November 2006, a position he has held since.
