Memorable Manitobans: Robert Crosby Ennis (1859-1925)

Miller, MLA (1900-1903).

Elected to the Manitoba Legislature at the 1899 general election, defeating Conservative challenger John A. Davidson, he resigned his seat in February 1900 citing pressure on him by the Conservative government of Hugh John Macdonald. Davidson subsequently won the seat at a by-election in March 1900. Ennis lived at Neepawa for a time then moved to Seniac, Saskatchewan around 1909. He died at Brandon on 13 November 1925, survived by a widow and three sons.
