This morning, Premier Dalton McGuinty announced that Ontario will name the Windsor-Essex Parkway after one of Windsor’s most popular politicians, the Right Honourable Herb Gray.

Gray represented Windsor as a member of parliament for an unprecedented 13 consecutive terms. During his career, he served as minister for numerous federal departments including National Revenue; Consumer and Corporate Affairs; Industry, Trade and Commerce; and Regional Economic Expansion. Gray is the former Canadian Chair of the International Joint Commission, a bilateral organization that resolves boundary waters concerns between Canada and the United States.

“Naming this busy Parkway after the Right Honourable Herb Gray is a fitting tribute to one of the hardest working politicians Canada has ever seen. As drivers make their way through the region, they will travel through green space he championed, and share a major trade gateway between Canada and the U.S. — a relationship he strengthened with his service. Herb Gray has earned respect from all political parties and families in Windsor, in Ontario and throughout Canada.” said Premier McGuinty
