Charles Henry "Chuck" Cook (28 July 1926 – 23 February 1993) was a broadcaster and politician in Canada.

Cook was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. He became a CJOR radio talk show host in Vancouver, British Columbia in the 1970s. He served as Progressive Conservative Member of Parliament from 1979 to 1993 in the riding of North Vancouver—Burnaby. He also ran for the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta in the riding of Calgary Centre in the 1967 election but came up a very close second to Fred Colborne of the Alberta Social Credit Party.

He died of cancer before finishing his term as member in the 34th Canadian Parliament.
