Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Rick Byers says he is very pleased to be appointed as Parliamentary Assistant (PA) to Ontario’s Minister of Finance. MPP Byers was sworn into the position at Queen’s Park.

Parliamentary Assistants work with ministers in carrying out their duties and supporting them as required including special projects and assignments. They also play a key role in building relationships and communicating government initiatives across the province. MPP Byers says his career experience in the financial markets makes him a good fit for this role.

MPP Byers also says he is excited to take his seat in the Ontario Legislature when it reconvenes this summer to pass the Ontario Budget, introduced by Minister Bethlenfalvy back in April.


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
