Charles R Tuson – Mayor – 1917

0323

    Mr. Tuson’s excellent business ability stands him in good stead in his present civic capacity, as mayor of Windsor. Previous to his being elected mayor, Mr. Tuson served in the council as alderman. His first business venture, on arriving in this city, was the floral business. Not only did he make a decided success of this, but he also established undertaking parlors. Ordinarily, this would have kept a man fairly busy, but Mr. Tuson’s energy was not to be confined in that way. Later he went into the manufacture of auto trucks, and has the distinction of being associated with the pioneer truck company of Canada, The Canadian Commercial Motor Car Co., Ltd. Mr. Tuson is also interested in the manufacture of “Abram” cement tools.
