William Charles Good 1876-1967
A leading spokesman for Canadian agrarian and co-operative movements, Good was born and raised on Myrtleville farm. He early developed a strong sense of social responsibility and, returning here after attending University of Toronto, he embarked upon a career that effectively combined public service with farming. Good initially focussed his attention on agrarian issues. In 1914 he helped found the United Farmers of Ontario and the United Farmers Co-operative Company, organizations he subsequently served, and from, 1921-1925, following his election on the "Farmers' Platform", he represented Brant in the House of Commons. Then, as the president of the Co-operative Union of Canada from 1921-1945, Good devoted himself to promoting co-operative ideals as a means of reducing social injustice. He championed this cause until his death.
