October 30, 2021

OTTAWA, ON – This afternoon, Dufferin-Caledon MP David Tilson stood in the House of Commons to honour the work of Grand Valley Deputy Fire Chief Paul Agar on his retirement after 45 years of service to the community:

Mr. Speaker, it is my honour and privilege to recognize a local hero, Deputy Chief Paul Agar, who recently retired after 45 years of loyal and dedicated service to our community.

During his time with the Grand Valley Fire Department, Deputy Chief Agar proudly served his time as a volunteer, chief, and deputy chief, while also becoming a mentor to fellow firefighters. He always gave his time unconditionally to protect the community whenever there was a fire call.

His outstanding leadership and commitment to volunteer firefighting has set a wonderful example for everyone to follow. This is underscored by the fact that his family is also involved in firefighting, including his wife, Carol, his son, Mike, and his daughter, Deborah.

On behalf of the residents of Dufferin-Caledon, I sincerely congratulate Deputy Chief Paul Agar on 45 years of exemplary community service and wish him all the very best in his retirement.
