Interactive Ontario welcomes The Honourable Sylvia Jones, MPP for Dufferin-Caledon, to the position of Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport. We look forward to working with the Minister on issues of importance to the Interactive Digital Media sector in Ontario. Ms. Jones is a long-standing MPP with deep experience in the legislature, having been first elected in 2007. Her education in radio broadcasting from Fanshawe College demonstrates an interest in the cultural industries which will serve her well in this portfolio. Interactive Ontario will be in touch with the Minister to start a dialogue on the role that the Interactive Digital Media sector plays in the Ontario economy.
Given the importance of the OIDMTC to IO members, IO was pleased to see the appointment of The Honourable Victor Fedeli as Minister of Finance in the new government. IO will continue the relationship begun during the last government when Mr. Fedeli was the PC critic for Finance.
