CORNWALL – Local MPP Jim McDonell is recuperating after undergoing hip surgery.

“Great work today by Dr. (Danny) Tombler and staff at Cornwall Community Hospital for terrific care I received today,” McDonell tweeted Monday from his hospital bed.

“He is fine. He is expected to be released tomorrow (Wednesday)…and then it is therapy and recovery,” said Marilyn McMahon-Ayerst, McDonell’s executive assistant.

The South Glengarry-born and raised Progressive Conservative MPP for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry is in his early 60s.
