  • Notes 
    • Beniah Bowman (March 14, 1886 - April 13, 1941) was an Ontario farmer and political figure. He represented Manitoulin in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1918 to 1926 and Algoma East in the Canadian House of Commons from 1926 to 1930 as a United Farmers member. He was born in Waterloo County, Ontario . He was elected in an 1918 by-election held after the death of Robert Roswell Gamey , becoming the first member of his party to sit in the provincial assembly. He was re-elected in the 1919 provincial election in which the UFO staged an upset victory to form a coalition government with Independent Labour MLAs. Bowman was Minister of Lands and Forests in the provincial cabinet from 1920 to 1923. He broke with the majority of UFO MLAs in Ontario following the 1923 provincial election when what had become known as the Progressive Party chose non-farmer William Edgar Raney as its leader. Instead, he and two other UFO MLAs sat as their own rump caucus, apart from the Progressives. Bowman left provincial politics in 1926 to enter federal politics and was elected as a UFO MP for Algoma East to the Canadian House of Commons . In the 1930 federal election , he ran unsuccessfully for re-election as a Liberal in 1930.1a
