Plaque Text

Born on a farm near here, Meighen graduated from the University of Toronto in 1896, and in 1902 moved to Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, to practice law. In 1908 he was elected to the federal parliament as Conservative member for that riding. He served successively as solicitor-general, secretary of state and minister of the interior under Sir Robert Borden, whom he succeeded as prime minister from 1920 to 1921. He again served briefly as prime minister in 1926. Leader of the opposition 1921-1926, he excelled as an orator and debater. Appointed to the senate in 1932, he resigned in 1942 to contest South York riding, was defeated and retired from politics.
