PARCELPAL WELCOMES ONTARIO MP PARM GILL TO THE ADVISORY BOARD OF DIRECTORS
ParcelPal Technology Inc. has welcomed Ontario member of Parliament Parm Gill as an adviser to the board of directors.
Mr. Gill is the current member of provincial Parliament for Milton, Ont. Prior to his work in public service, Mr. Gill was involved in several family businesses in the manufacturing and hospitality industries. Mr. Gill studied at the Ivey School of Business at Western University, earning his master of business administration.
Before being elected to the Ontario Legislature in 2018, Mr. Gill was the federal member of Parliament for Brampton-Springdale from 2011 to 2015.
While serving as the MP in the Canadian House of Commons, Mr. Gill was appointed as the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Veteran Affairs and, later, the Minister of International Trade. Throughout his tenure, Mr. Gill was a member of many committees, including the standing committee of public safety and national security, health, Canadian heritage, veteran affairs, and international trade.
In 2012, Mr. Gill introduced a private member bill, C-394. His bill introduced a new Criminal Code offence: prohibiting the recruitment or encouragement of a person to join a criminal organization. The bill passed with unanimous consent and became law in June, 2014. The bill works to keep streets, neighbourhoods and communities safer, which has always been a top priority for Mr. Gill.
As chair of the standing committee on justice policy, Mr. Gill continues his advocacy work to keep communities safe. The committee is responsible for studying and providing recommendations on bills related to policing and the courts.
Kelly Abbott, president and chief executive officer of ParcelPal, stated: "I am very excited to have Parm join the advisory board. Mr. Gill's knowledge on economic issues and private-sector experience will be an asset for ParcelPal moving forward. Mr. Gill has changed criminal law for the better and is always looking for the betterment of safety for all Canadians."
Mr. Gill stated: "I am excited to be joining a company that has put public safety first. As ParcelPal moves further into cannabis and alcohol delivery, I am happy to advise on how they can continue the fight against intoxicated people on the roads and getting their products safely. ParcelPal has a bright future and I am excited to be part of a team that will grow their business across Canada and the United States."
