Daniel Lee Redman (October 4, 1889 – April 8, 1948) was a lawyer, soldier and a Canadian federal politician.

Born in Oil City, Ontario, Redman served in the 103rd Regiment "Calgary Rifles", and then served overseas with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in the First World War.

Redman returned to Calgary and ran in the 1917 Canadian federal election as the Unionist coalition candidate in East Calgary. He ended up winning the district defeating future Member of Parliament William Irvine in a landslide.[1]

Redman served one term in the Canadian House of Commons before retiring in 1921.
