Richard M. McMeekin was a politician in the Canadian province of Ontario, who served in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 1937. He represented the electoral district of Sault Ste. Marie as a member of the Ontario Liberal Party.
McMeekin won the seat in the 1937 election. However, after just two weeks in office, he resigned to open a seat for former federal MP Colin Campbell to enter provincial politics in a by-election, after Campbell was defeated in the district of Frontenac-Addington on election day. Prior to his election to the legislature, McMeekin served two years as mayor of Sault Ste. Marie.
