Ajax is mourning the loss of Joe Dickson.
The former Ajax councillor and Liberal MPP has died.
Ajax Mayor Shaun Collier described Dickson as a committed public servant who was passionate about public service, politics, and the success of the community he loved.
“He will be well remembered for his many contributions to our town,” Collier said in a released statement.
Dickson’s political career stretched from 1983 to 2018.
He was also awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal.
A book of condolence will be placed at Ajax town hall in the coming days and the flags will be lowered to mark his funeral.
