Ed Lumley

Edward C. Lumley, PC (born July 8 1934) is a corporate executive and former Canadian politician.

Born in Windsor, Ontario, he received a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1961 from Assumption University (predecessor of the University of Windsor). Lumley established himself in business in Cornwall in the other end of the province before entering politics. He was first elected to the Canadian House of Commons as the Liberal Member of Parliament for Stormont—Dundas in the 1974 federal election.

In 1976, he became parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion. From 1977 to 1978, he served as parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Finance.

Lumley survived the 1979 election that defeated the Liberal government. The Liberals returned to power in the 1980 federal election and Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau appointed Lumley to the cabinet as Minister of State for Trade. After serving in a few other minor portfolios, he was promoted to Minister of Industry and Minister of Regional Economic Expansion in 1982.

Trudeau's successor, John Turner, made Lumley his Minister of Communications and Minister of Regional Industrial Expansion in 1984. Lumley and the Turner government were defeated in the 1984 federal election that fall.

Following his electoral defeat, Lumley returned to the private sector and became an influential corporate figure. He has served as vice-chairman of BMO Nesbitt Burns since 1991, lead director of Magna International, and a board member of Bell Canada Enterprises, Canadian National Railway and Air Canada.

In 2000, Lumley was appointed to lead a commission examining salaries and compensation for Members of Parliament.

A friend of the former prime minister, Paul Martin, he had been consulted by Martin's government on various issues.

In 2006, he was appointed Chancellor of the University of Windsor.
