The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority extends heartfelt condolences to Councillor Scott Macpherson’s family and the community of O​ro-Medonte

NEWMARKET – November 7, 2019 – Board members and staff of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) express sincere condolences and deep sadness at the passing of Oro-Medonte Councillor Scott Macpherson, who was also the Vice Chair of LSRCA’s Board of Directors.

Scott always had a smile to share and was never short on kind words and insightful contributions around the boardroom table. We will truly miss him.”  

“As a former executive member with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority and the Sauble Valley-North Grey Conservation Authority, Councillor Macpherson brought a keen awareness and understanding of the environment to his role as a board member for both LSRCA and the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation,” said Mike Walters, LSRCA’s Chief Administrative Officer. “As an advocate of the work that the Conservation Authority does, Vice Chair Macpherson was always well prepared to participate in discussion and tough decisions. His passing is a true loss for the Conservation Authority and I know the same will be felt by all who knew him.” 

The Board and the staff of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority wish to offer their thoughts and prayers to Scott’s two sons, extended family, friends and the Township of Oro-Medonte community during this time.

​​​​​​​​​It is the mission of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority to collaborate, protect and restore the Lake Simcoe watershed with innovative research, policy and action.
