"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," ParcelPal's President and CEO Kelly Abbott said in the release.
Gill is a current member of Ontario's Provincial Parliament for Milton, having been elected in 2018. Previously, from 2011 to 2015, he served as a federal member of parliament for Brampton-Springdale.

"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 [delivered] safely," Gill said in the release.
