Blake was born in 1833, in Adelaide Township, Upper Canada (Ontario).


In 1856, after Blake was called to the bar, he entered into partnership with Stephen M. Jarvis in Toronto to practice law. When his brother Samuel Hume Blake joined soon thereafter, it was Blake & Blake and today the firm is known as Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP.[1] Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP – Blakes for short – is a major full service Canadian law firm. ...


Blake was recruited into active politics by George Brown, became leader of the Ontario Liberal Party in 1868 and premier in 1871, but left provincial politics to run in the 1872 federal election, in which he was re-elected. The "dual mandate" rule that allowed a politician to sit simultaneously in a provincial and federal house had been abolished, and Blake chose to abandon his career in provincial politics. He played a major role in exposing the government of Sir John A. Macdonald's complicity in the Pacific Scandal forcing the government's resignation. Blake was offered the prime ministership, but turned it down due to ill health. George Brown George Brown (November 29, 1818 – May 9, 1880) was a Scottish-born Canadian journalist and politician. ...

When the Liberals won the subsequent 1874 federal election, Blake joined the cabinet of Prime Minister Alexander Mackenzie and served as Minister of Justice and President of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada. The Canadian federal election of 1874 was held on January 22, 1874. ...

The Liberals were defeated in the 1878 election, and Blake succeeded Mackenzie as party leader in 1880. He failed to defeat Macdonald's Conservatives in the 1882 or 1887 elections.

Blake never lost his Clear Grit style and ability to bore an audience for hours on end with pedantic detail. Nonetheless, the Liberal Party evolved thoroughly under his leadership.


In 1892, Blake entered the British House of Commons as an Irish Nationalist Member of Parliament for the constituency of South Longford in the centre of Ireland. He served until 1907 when he resigned (obtaining the position of Steward of the Chiltern Hundreds) following a stroke and retired to Canada.

The Films of Blake Edwards (3479 words)
Blake Edwards is the grandson of silent screen director J. Gordon Edwards, who made many of Theda Bara's films.
Edwards has superimposed the two here, so that the building of suspense in the dance sequence corresponds to suspense of watching the mysterious murderer execute another one of his crimes.
Edwards has done a lot of dramas in recent years, and his dramatic skills are just nowhere as good as his magnificent comic skills.
