Biography of Lewis St. George Stubbs

Lewis St. G. Stubbs was born on June 14, 1878 in the Turks & Caicos Islands, British West Indies. He left Cambridge University, where he was studying to become a medical missionary, to fight in the Boer War 1900-1901. He immigrated to Winnipeg in 1902 and was called to Manitoba Bar Association in 1906. In 1904 he married Mary Wilcock. In 1908 they moved to Birtle, Manitoba where he practiced law for fourteen years. In 1921 he ran unsuccessfully for the Liberal Party against T.A. Crerar the leader of the Progressive Party in the federal riding of Marquette. In April 1922 he became the first judicial appointment of the newly appointed Mackenzie King and moved back to Winnipeg. The MacDonald Will Case in 1929 brought Stubbs notoriety and conflict with his fellow judges and the legal establishment. In the following three years several complaints of judicial misbehavior were lodged by the Attorney-General of Manitoba with the Department of Justice. In January 1933 a Federal Commission led by Justice Frank Ford staged an inquiry into Stubbs judicial conduct. He was removed from the bench by order-in-council June 1, 1933. A month later he won the nomination to become the newly C.C.F. party’s first candidate in a bye-election in the riding of Mackenzie in Saskatchewan. He lost the election and returned to the practice of law in Winnipeg. In 1936 Stubbs ran as an independent candidate in the provincial election. On a platform of Human Rights and Social Justice and a campaign budget of $200.00, he swept the polls with greatest electoral majority ever recorded in the Manitoba Legislature. He won re-election in 1941 & 1945. Stubbs was active in many left leaning/united front political organizations. He was the President of the Winnipeg Committee to Aid Spanish Democracy from 1936-1939 and President of the local arm of the National Committee for Peace and Democracy 1938-1939. In 1956 Stubbs appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada representing John Tunney in a suit against the Teamsters’ Union. He died in May 1958.
