Lord, I pray today for John Yakabuski. Please guide him in his work as the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry and help him to see You in his everyday life. May his efforts be part of the plan You have for the province of Ontario. Bless him, Lord, as he has blessed so many through his work in the community. May the love You have for him shine through to the people he works alongside and in the decisions he makes. In Jesus name, Amen……..
John Yakabuski was re-elected June 7th, 2018, for his fifth term in office and is currently serving as the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry. John’s father, Paul Yakabuski, served as the Provincial Member for the riding of Renfrew South for 24 years. John is known locally as the former owner-operator of Yakabuski’s Home Hardware in Barry’s Bay, which he operated for 20 years. He is also known for his community service including service to the Royal Canadian Legion, Madawaska Valley Lions Club and the Boy Scouts. In 2010 John recorded and released his second CD entitled “Taking Care” to raise funds that go directly to nine long term care homes in his riding. John’s first CD, “To Your Health” raised over $50,000 for the five local hospitals in Renfrew County. He and his wife Vicky have four children and eight grandchildren.
