Frank graduated as valedictorian in the first graduating class at St. Mary’s College in Sault Ste. Marie; received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from University of Windsor; received a Bachelor of Law from Osgoode Hall in Toronto; and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1969. The Province of Ontario appointed him Queen’s Counsel in 1985. After retiring from the practice of law in 2008, he was accepted into a Doctorate program at the University of Bristol in Bristol, U.K. in Policy Studies. He received his Doctor of Philosophy in 2013.
For close to forty years, his preferred areas of practice were in Corporate and Commercial Law, advising individuals, corporations, small business, developers, professional athletes, institutions, municipalities, non-profit corporations, and financial institutions. Having had a privilege to take a leadership role in a number of successful community mobilizations that required the organization and recruitment of community assets to meet specific challenges or goals, he was recognized with numerous awards for community service.
Frank recently published a book called 'Hound Town'. The book shows that the Soo Greyhounds are an integral part of Sault Ste. Marie, and truly the community’s team. From the team’s first season in 1972 to the shifting trends in today’s game, the book provides an insider’s perspective on a seminal OHL hockey club, and what it takes to make Sault Ste. Marie one of the best hockey towns anywhere. Hound Town can be purchased at the Centre for Social Justice and good works. Five dollars from every purchase supports the Centres programs.
