Norm Miller (born 1956) is a politician in Ontario, Canada. He is a member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, representing the riding of Parry Sound—Muskoka for the Progressive Conservatives. His father, Frank Miller, was also a Progressive Conservative MPP from the region for many years, and briefly served as Premier of Ontario in 1985.

Background

Miller started a Muskoka Young Progressive Conservative organization in 1975, and has been active in the party since this time. He is a commercial pilot and has served as president of Muskoka Tourism.

Politics

Miller was elected to the Ontario legislature in a 2001 by-election, called after Ernie Eves resigned his seat in the legislature; he defeated Liberal Evelyn Brown by about 4000 votes.[1] In April 2002, Miller was appointed as Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Northern Development and Mines.

Miller was re-elected by an increased margin in the 2003 provincial election, although the Progressive Conservatives were reduced to only 24 out of 103 seats in the legislature as the Liberals won a commanding majority.[2] In 2004, he supported John Tory in the latter's successful bid to succeed Eves as leader of the Progressive Conservative Party.

He was re-elected in 2007, 2011, and 2014.[3][4]
