Memorable Manitobans: Francis Creighton “Frank” Muldoon (1930-2013)

Born at Winnipeg in 1930, son of William Muldoon and Laura Meredith, he practiced law for 14 years and served as a Bencher of the Law Society of Manitoba (1969-1971). He was a Liberal candidate in the 1959, 1966, and 1969 provincial general elections but was defeated each time. He was appointed Chairman of the Manitoba Law Reform Commission in 1970 and, seven years later, was named Vice-President, and later President, of the Law Reform Commission of Canada. He was made a Queen’s Counsel in 1971. In 1983, he became a judge on the Federal Court of Canada. He died at Ottawa, Ontario on 9 January 2013.
