Samuel Burch

Samuel Edward Burch (born August 1, 1889 in Carberry, Manitoba; died March 4, 1974) was a politician in Manitoba, Canada. He served in the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba as a Liberal-Progressive from 1949 to 1958.

Burch was educated at Brucefield School in Manitoba. He was first elected to the Manitoba legislature in the 1949 election in the constituency of Norfolk-Beautiful Plains, defeating his Progressive Conservative opponent by 633 votes. He was re-elected by a greater margin in the 1953 provincial election. Burch served as a backbench supporter of Douglas Campbell's government during his time in the legislature.

The Liberal-Progressives were defeated in the 1958 election, and Burch was defeated by Progressive Conservative candidate Marcel Boulic in the redistributed constituency of Cypress.
