Progressive Conservative MP Parm Gill, who was also Ontario's Minister of Red Tape Reduction, is leaving the provincial politics. He will try his luck federally with the Conservative Party of Canada.

Mr. Gill is the MP for the riding of Milton, which is west of Toronto. He is to date the only MP in the history of this riding created in 2015. He was also a federal MP between 2011 and 2015 for the riding of Brampton—Springdale.

He confirmed his resignation on the X network (formerly Twitter) on Thursday evening.

Over the past few months, several members of our community have asked me to join Pierre Poilievre's team and continue working to Milton, but at the federal level. […] I have informed Premier Ford that I am resigning from the Council [of Ministers] and my seat as Member of Parliament for Milton, it reads.

I want to thank Premier Ford for the trust he has placed in me and for helping me work for Milton and for our great province.

Caitlin Clark, spokesperson for Doug Ford, thanked Parm Gill for her service to the Cabinet.

We wish her well in this news step and we will announce at a later date who will be the new Minister of Red Tape Reduction, she said, in a brief written statement.

Ontario Liberal Party spokesperson Carter Brownlee responded to this news Thursday evening. This is clearly another sign that the Ford team is abandoning a sinking ship, reads a terse email sent to the media.

For his part, the director of the provincial New Democratic Party, Kevin Beaulieu claims, in a written statement, that [Doug] Ford's corrupt Conservatives have lost another minister – the fourth to resign in disgrace or heading towards the exit since September.

Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Steve Clark and Minister of Public and Business Services, Kaleed Rasheed, resigned following the Greenbelt controversy.

Labor and Immigration Minister Monte McNaughton said, for his part, left politics to become vice-president of Woodbine Entertainment.
