Political party Liberal

Léoda Gauthier (December 29, 1904 – January 17, 1964) was a Canadian Liberal Party Member of Parliament from 1945 to 1958.

Born in Copper Cliff, Ontario, Gauthier represented three different ridings over the course of his career as the city of Sudbury grew in size and importance to warrant one, and then two, ridings of its own.

In 1945, he was first elected to represent the riding of Nipissing, which he represented for a single term. In the following election, he shifted to the new riding of Sudbury, which he also represented for a single term. In 1953, he became the representative for Nickel Belt, and represented that riding until February 1958.
