The soon to be “Executive Director” of the Pembina Institute, Glen Murray is well known for implemented Ontario’s ambitious cap-and trade program aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The resignation will become effective Sept. 5, 2017. He also resigns from politics by resigning his Toronto Centre seat on Sept. 1.

Kathleen Wynne, Ontario’s premier, had to shuffle a few members of her cabinet after the announcement broke.

As a result of this reshuffling, Chris Ballard, who had been serving as Ontario’s housing minister, was made environment minister, and former Toronto councilor Peter Milczyn was promoted to cabinet to take over at housing.

Murray’s announcement came as a surprise, as he had indicated just months ago that he would run again in next year’s provincial election.
