The Honourable Roger Simmons, PC, is a public policy consultant in Canada. Born at sea, on the Atlantic Ocean near Lewisporte, Newfoundland and Labrador, he spent his childhood years in the bustling railway town of Bishop’s Falls. His early career as an educator and clergyman took him to coastal towns in his beloved rural Newfoundland. As a politician, provincially and federally, he was the voice of the island’s south coast for twenty-five years.
