Sir Oliver Mowat (July 22, 1820 – April 19, 1903) was a Canadian lawyer, politician, and Liberal Party leader.

History

One of the Fathers of Confederation, he is best known for successfully defending the constitutional rights of the provinces in the face of the centralizing tendency of the national government as represented by his longtime conservative adversary, John A. Macdonald.

He served as the third Premier of Ontario for nearly 24 years and in 1897 he was appointed the eighth Lieutenant Governor of Ontario,  where he served until his death in office in 1903.
