Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1870
Death: Feb. 7, 1950

Thomas Langton "Tommy" Church-He was a Canadian politician. After serving as Mayor of Toronto from 1915 to 1921, he was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the 1921 election as a Conservative from the riding of Toronto North. He was defeated in the 1930 election in Toronto West Centre, but returned to Parliament as Member of Parliament (MP) for Toronto East in a 1934 by-election. He remained in the House of Commons until his death in 1950. As mayor, Church was strongly backed by the Toronto Telegram and opposed by the Toronto Daily Star. He was occasionally mocked in the pages of the Star by Ernest Hemingway who was, at the time, a reporter for the paper. Late in his career as an MP, Church denounced the newly formed United Nations as "modern tower of Babel", for "which Canada and Great Britain should not allow their interests to be the play thing."
