Memorable Manitobans: John Forsyth (?-?)

Farmer, MLA (1894-1895).

A farmer and itinerant preacher, he served as Grand Vice-President of the Patrons of Industry in 1893. Elected to a seat in the Manitoba Legislature at a by-election in August 1894, replacing John A. Davidson whose election in 1892 had been voided, he sat for the remainder of the term and did not seek re-election. He was chiefly noted for his skill as an orator.
