McQUEEN, Thomas, Canadian journalist, born in Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1803; died in Goderich, 25 June. 1861. His education was extremely limited, and he had early to contribute toward the support of the family. He became a stone-mason, employed his intervals of leisure in supplying the deficiencies of his early education, and became an eloquent advocate of the cause of labor. He came to Canada, in 1842, and pursued his trade in the county of Renfrew In 1848 he established the "Huron Signal" at Goderich, and became through its columns a well-known advocate of responsible government. In 1854 he was an unsuccessful candidate to the Canadian parliament for Huron in the reform interest. He has published several volumes of poems.
