The Honorable Frank L. Bastedo served as Saskatchewan's Lieutenant Governor from 1958 to 1963.In 1961, he refused to sign a bill, that was the last time Royal Assent was used in Canada to block legislation.
Mr. Bastedo said that he had grave doubts as to the validity of the bill, but he did not make his reasons public, although they were contained in a report he sent to the Governor General.A month later the federal cabinet ordered that royal assent be given to the bill, which was intended to give the provincial government power to order alterations to some or all of the 2,300 mineral rights leases before the mineral contracts negotiation board.The bill was proclaimed late in the year, but its provisions were never put into effect and it subsequently expired.
Born in Bracebridge, Ontario, in 1886, Mr. Bastedo studied law at Osgoode Hall in Toronto.He was called to the Ontario bar in 1909 and two years later, having moved to Regina, was called to the Saskatchewan bar.For many years he was senior court counsel for the law firm of Thom, Bastedo, McDougall, Ready and Hodges, successors to MacKenzie, Brown, Thom and McMorran, the firm he joined when he came to Regina in 1911.Created a King's Counsel in 1927 he served as president of the Saskatchewan Bar Association for two years and was also president of the Saskatchewan Law Society.He was president of the Regian federal Conservative Association from 1921 to 1924 and was twice invited to stand for nomination for the Regina federal constituency but declined because of business pressure.
