The longest serving female MPP in the Ontario legislature Julia Munro has passed away at the age of 77.

Munro represented York-Simcoe as a Progressive Conservative from 1995 until she retired before the 2018 election.

Premier Doug Ford said he was very sad to learn of Munro’s passing in a statement on Twitter.

“Her service to her community and her province is an example for all of us privileged to serve at Queen’s Park,” said Ford.
