Tears and laughter filled the provincial legislature at Queens Park in Toronto Wednesday morning.
The occasion was a tribute to the man affectionately known as “Mr. Quinte,” the late Hugh O’Neil.
O’Neil passed away last September, and had served as the Liberal member for the former Quinte riding for 20 years, from 1975 to 1995.
He served as a cabinet minister in various portfolios.
Hugh O’Neil also served with countless organizations and committees locally, and even after retirement worked with the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Ontario Arts Council.
