  • Note: 1923; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "In 1923, the Major was asked to run as the Conservative candidate for the Northumberland East Riding of the Provincial Legislature and defeated the U.F.O. candidate Wes Montgomery and became a member of the Ontario Legislature. During the next three years, the Major made many speeches for his party and was particularly adept at uttering stinging phrases which raised the ire of the Liberals. It was reported "Major Belford has already proven that he is a valuable acquisition to the Conservative Party at Queen's Park. His speech in moving the reply to the address from the throne was of a high standard of excellence and on a plane seldom reached by the elected representatives of the people on such occasions."" from "William James Belford", sent to me by Jimmy Belford of Trenton, March 28, 2008.
