In 1911, James McKinley, an alderman on Edmonton City Council, resigned his position to protest the firing of two city commissioners. A by-election to fill the vacancy he left was scheduled for August 14 of that year. McKinley himself was a candidate, as was Thomas Bellamy. Bellamy defeated McKinely by a count of 966 votes to 576.
