Bill was born in Montreal and received his early formal education in eastern Ontario. Seeking
adventure, Bill commenced his adult working career as a commercial beekeeper in
British Honduras (now Belize) where, starting from scratch, he developed a commercial
beekeeping operation of 700 colonies, producing over 30 tons of honey for export in his
third year of operations. Bill returned to Canada and completed a B.A. degree at McGill
University, followed by a LL.B degree at Osgoode Hall Law School. Upon
being called to the Bar in 1974, Bill established a law office at Lawrence and Port Union Road
in West Hill. In 1982 he was joined by Murray Pearson. Bill's general practice focuses on real estate, family law, wills, estates, corporate/commercial,
and employment law. He is a Past President of the Rotary Club of
Scarborough and was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship in recognition of his efforts. Bill is an avid gardener, reads lots of books
and likes to travel. He no longer keeps any bees.
