Ezekiel Hart
(1767–1843)
Jewish Canadian entrepreneur and politician, and the first Jew to be elected to public office in the British Empire.

He was elected three times by the voters of Trois-Rivières to the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada. Francophone members consistently prevented him from taking his seat by observing that as a Jew, he could not take the oath of office, which included the phrase "on the true faith of a Christian". — Excerpted from Ezekiel Hart on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
