William C. Davis (born September 1, 1939) is a former politician in Ontario, Canada. He was a Progressive Conservative member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1985 to 1987 who represented the riding of Scarborough Centre.[note 1]
He was elected to the Ontario legislature in the 1985 provincial election, defeating Liberal candidate Gerald Lennon by 359 votes in Scarborough Centre. The Progressive Conservatives won a narrow plurality of seats in this election, and Davis briefly served as a backbench supporter of Frank Miller's administration before the PCs were defeated in the house. He served for two years as a member of the opposition, and was his party's critic for Education and Community and Social Services. He finished third against Liberal Cindy Nicholas in the 1987 election.
