He was involved in many key projects and served in a variety of roles that shaped the Canadian health care system, especially in northern Ontario. For example, John was a founding member of the Thunder Bay branch of the Addiction Research Foundation of Ontario and helped set up the first methadone treatment outreach for addicts in the late 1980s. In addition, John helped developed the Northwestern Ontario Medical Program (NOMP) which brought medical students from McMaster Medical School to northwestern Ontario to work with local doctors and health care providers. In the late 1990s, John also worked to establish the Northern Ontario School of Medicine with campuses in Thunder Bay, Ontario and Sudbury, Ontario. It was hoped that the school would encourage more physicians to train and practice in northern Ontario and ultimately sustain a health care system up north. These are a few examples of the projects John worked on during his career. He was actively involved in many other initiatives as well.
