Eric Bowness McKay (26 November 1899 – 20 February 1994) was a Co-operative Commonwealth Federation member of the Canadian House of Commons. He was born in Summerside, Prince Edward Island and became a principal and teacher by career. He was also a school principal at Radville, Saskatchewan from 1925 to 1941.[1]
