Charles Richard Huband

Lawyer, judge, politician.

Son of Rev. Allen Richard Huband (1903-1993) and Mildred Frances Morden (1904-2007), brother of A. Rolph Huband, he attended the University of Manitoba where he served on the editorial board for the student newspaper, The Manitoban (1954-1955). He practiced law for many years as a member of the firm Richardson and Company.

Active in the Manitoba Liberal Party, and its leader from 1975 to 1978, he was an unsuccessful candidate in the 1973 general election, 1975 provincial by-election, and 1977 general election. He later served as a Puisne Judge on the Manitoba Court of Appeal (1979-2007) after which he reopened a private law practice. He was a Liberal candidate again in the 2019 provincial election.

In 1954, he married schoolteacher Marilyn MacFarlane and they had three children. In recognition of his community service, he received a Prix Manitoba Award (1998) and a Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal (2002), and he was inducted into the Order of Manitoba (2023).
