Statement by Mayor David Miller on the passing of Ken Morrish
Mayor David Miller today extended condolences to the family and friends of former Scarborough and Metro Toronto Councillor Ken Morrish and expressed thanks for his dedication to his city.

“I always had tremendous respect for Ken and for his commitment to public service,” Miller said. “He left his mark on both Scarborough and Metro Councils over the 35 years he sat on them.”

Miller and Morrish sat on Metro Council together from 1994 to 1997 during which time Morrish served as Deputy Metro Chairman under Alan Tonks.

During his life in politics, Morrish, who represented eastern Scarborough beginning in 1967, also served on numerous City boards and commissions. His family was one of the first to settle in the Highland Creek community, and in 1999 the City changed the name of East Point Park to the Ken Morrish Softball Complex.
