Lewis Duncan


Lewis Duncan

J. Lewis Duncan was a Canadian politician and lawyer.

He was elected to Toronto City Council in the 1930s and ran for Mayor of Toronto in 1939 but was defeated by Ralph C. Day by a margin of 39,000 votes. Duncan ran as a Liberal candidate for the Canadian House of Commons in the 1940 election in the riding of Danforth, but was defeated in a two-way race against Conservative John Henry Harris.

Duncan subsequently joined the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, Ontario Section, and ran in the 1945 Ontario election as the CCF's candidate in the riding of High Park against George Drew, but was defeated. He then challenged Ontario CCF Ted Jolliffe for the leadership of the party, but was defeated by Jolliffe at the 1946 leadership convention.
