Who is Malcolm Alexander MacLean?
Malcolm Alexander MacLean was the first Mayor of Vancouver, British Columbia, serving from 1886 to 1887. He beat his opponent, sawmill manager Richard H. Alexander, by 17 votes May 3, 1886. The favourite going into the election was Alexander, of Alexander Street fame. But a strike at Hastings Sawmill divided the community, particularly after Alexander announced he would hire Chinese workers to replace the white strikers. The strikers talked real estate salesman Malcolm MacLean into running in opposition. MacLean won in a squeaker, 242 votes to Alexander’s 225.
