TORONTO -- Former Ontario premier David Peterson helped bring the 2015 Pan American Games to Toronto. Buffalo Bills Jerseys . His next task is to take things to the finish line. Peterson, who served as premier between 1985 and 1990, was named chair of the TO2015 organizing committee Monday afternoon. He replaces Roger Garland, who has held the job since 2009. Peterson was the chair of Ontarios bid to get the Games. He was joined by Garland, chief executive officer Ian Troop and dozens of TO2015 staffers for the announcement at the organizations downtown office. Peterson, who was nominated to the position by Premier Kathleen Wynne, thanked Garland for his efforts in creating a strong foundation over the last few years. "Think of it this way -- Roger was the cake and Im the icing," Peterson said with a smile. "And I get to do all the good stuff. Roger has done all the donkey work. He has put this organization together on a sound financial basis, great people have been hired across the board, all the wheels are moving together and in a very thoughtful way." The Pan Am Games will be held from July 10-26, 2015 in several communities across the province. The Parapan Games are slated for Aug. 7-14.

"In short, now is the perfect time for transition," he said in a statement. "Ive accomplished what I set out to do. To use an appropriate sports analogy, Im passing the baton for the next racer to carry for the final 100 metres of the relay race, confident that Ive done my part to ensure the teams success." Garland told staffers in attendance there was a "lot of disappointment" but that there were many good things about the transition. "I think there are those phases of grief you go through when youve lost something and yet there is a positive side to it," he said, adding hes looking forward to spending more time with his wife, who will retire at years end. Garland, who plans to formally step down at a board meeting on Thursday, also said that hes very proud of the organizing teams effort. "Weve built an organization and a structure and a plan to put on the biggest Games in this countrys history and weve done it with a lot of constraints and a lot of discipline," he said. "So all I can say is I am just in awe of what you folks have done and Ive got enormous confidence going forward that youre going to continue to do what youve done up until now."
