Lawyer, MLA (1982-1986).

He graduated from the Manitoba Law School and was called to the Manitoba Bar in 1964. He practiced law in Brandon for 44 years and was appointed a Queen’s Counsel in 1975. Active in provincial politics, he was a declared Liberal prior to 1969, running in general elections in 1973 and 1977 as a member of the NDP. In 1981, he was elected to a seat in the Manitoba Legislative, representing the Brandon West constituency. He broke ranks with the party the following year when he was passed over for a cabinet post in the Pawley government, and henceforth sat as an Independent. He did not run in the next general election. He died at Brandon on 19 June 2015.
