John B. Mather
John B Mather (c. 1845 – 31 January 1892) was the son of Scottish immigrants and became a Canadian businessman and politician.
Mather's early introduction to business was as an employee of Frank Smith, a leading grocer in Toronto. He moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1881 and established himself as a leading Winnipeg wholesaler. It was a time where the business emphasis in the West was switching from the Hudson's Bay Company and the St Paul, Minnesota merchants to products and businesses from eastern Canada. He quickly became successful in business and involved himself in the social and political life of his new home.
