    Biographical history

    Douglas Cameron Main was born in Willow Bunch, Saskatchewan in 1946. He married Judy Sumner. He worked as a news anchor at CITV in Edmonton from 1975 to 1988. After running unsuccessfully as a Reform Party of Canada candidate in the 1988 federal election, he worked for a television production company in the sports, politics and tourism field.

    He was elected as a Progressive Conservative MLA in 1989 in the Edmonton-Parkallen electoral district. He served as Minister of Culture and Multiculturalism (1989-1992). He was a candidate in the 1993 provincial Progressive Conservative leadership race but was defeated by Ralph Klein. He lost his bid to retain his party's nomination for his riding in 1993, and he left office at the dissolution of the Legislative Assembly in 1993.
