This page was violated! SD6-Agent 02:41, 14 Nov 2003 (UTC)

Wow, three days with no one noticing...thanks, it's fixed now. Adam Bishop 02:42, 14 Nov 2003 (UTC)

This page should be divided up into two sections... showing Tuppers extensive Provincial and Federal careers. Disasternat 20:35PM 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Tupper is very notable in that he had the shortest term as Canadian Prime Minister. This should be directly addressed in the article. --206.116.214.40 21:55, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

There is an incorrect label on the statue of Sir Charles Tupper. The plaster cast statue is said to have been done by W.C. Archibald. This is completely wrong. The statue was done by well known Canadian sculpturer Louis Phillippe Hebert. The name of W.C. Archibald is on the base - it was likely commissioned by him. Hebert's name is on the other side of the base. The statues are somewhat rare, but the origin is widely known. How do I know this? I have one on the other side of my living room. 24.138.27.94 (talk) 14:29, 16 December 2013 (UTC)

Charles NAPIER Tupper??[edit]

I can find no source for this middle name of Tupper. Surely he didn't share the middle name of John Turner? Canada Jack 20:40, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Neither the Dictionary of Canadian Biography or the parliamentary website mention anything about Charles Tupper having a middle name. Unless someone can cite a source that lists his middle name as "Napier," I have omitted it. I believe someone has conflated John Turner's middle name with Tupper - as Turner's middle name is, in fact, Napier. Canada Jack 16:22, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Image[edit]

I'm not sure of the coding to do it myself, but I think it might be better to show the image in the infobox at its own size/resolution-- it looks very "chunky" right now. Stevecudmore (talk) 20:21, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Agreed. And fixed. Windjade (talk) 21:35, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Removed triva section[edit]

I worked most of the informationin the triva section into the rest of the article and removed the section. The only fact I couldn't find a place for is, handily enough, addmitttedly doubious and unsourced, so it goes here until someone finds a source for it:

"According to some reports (discounted by some historians), Tupper was also a notorious womanizer, his nickname 'The Ram of Cumberland' being believed to have a dual meaning."Stevecudmore (talk) 03:58, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

MD?[edit]

Tupper wouldn't have graduated with an MD from the University of Edinburgh as that institution doesn't grant those. He would have received an MBChB. Trust me, I went there :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lilolily (talkcontribs) 16:00, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
