Former Ontario A-G joins Fasken Martineau

Howard Hampton, the former Ontario NDP leader who served as the province's attorney-general in the 1990s in the government of premier Bob Rae, is joining Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP.

Mr. Hampton, who stepped down as MPP for the massive Northern Ontario riding of Kenora-Rainy River and did not run in the recent provincial election, will be a member of Fasken Martineau's corporate social responsibility and aboriginal affairs groups.

Martin Denyes, Fasken Martineau's managing partner for Ontario, said in a statement that Mr. Hampton, a former minister of natural resources, would be an asset to the firm's clients.

"His expertise and commitment to sustainable use of our natural resources along with his understanding of the North will add significant value to our firm and most importantly to our clients," Mr. Denyes said.

Mr. Hampton was an Ontario cabinet minister under Mr. Rae from 1990 to 1995. After the government's defeat at the hands of Mike Harris's Conservatives, Mr. Hampton led the party from 1996 to 2009.
