Dates of existence


Charles Edward Sweeney was born on August 30, 1930. He is one of eight children of Leo Sweeney, owner of Sweeney Cooperage Ltd. Ed Sweeney later became Vice President of that firm, although he eventually sold his share to brothers Frank and Jack in 1972. After three unsuccessful attempts, Sweeney gained an aldermanic seat in 1966, running on the Non-Partisan Association (N.P.A.) slate. He served three terms before being defeated again in the 1972 election. He ran once more, successfully, in 1974, but did not seek re-election after serving that term. Sweeney also had some interest in provincial politics. Switching from the provincial Liberal Party to the Social Credit Party in 1968, he was nominated as a candidate for West Point Grey in the provincial election of 1972, but failed to gain a seat.
