Lincoln Alexander was Canada’s first black member of Parliament, elected in 1968. The Ontario Lieutenant-Governor just passed away last week at age 90. Described as a “Living Legend,” Alexander, a.k.a. “Linc”, served as a wireless operator with the Royal Canadian Air Force during WWII, from 1942 until 1945. Alexander overcame racism and prejudice in Canada during the country’s most highly racial eras.
