Memorable Manitobans: Daniel Cameron Halliday (1882-1934)

Municipal official.

Born at Pictou, Nova Scotia on 16 April 1882, he came to Winnipeg in 1904. For 23 years he was employed with the plumbing and heating firm of Partridge-Halliday Limited, retiring in 1932 to devote himself to municipal work. In 1933 he was elected Mayor of St. Boniface, defeating incumbent F. R. Dowse, and was acclaimed for a second term in office but died before doing so. He was a Mason (Prince Rupert Lodge) and was active in horse racing, in which he served as a judge. He died unmarried on 21 November 1934 following a medical procedure. He was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
