Leo Nimsick, born in 1908, was first elected to the British Columbia Provincial Legislature on June 14, 1949, as the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) MLA from Cranbrook. He represented this region continuously and, following the 1961 reorganization of the CCF into the New Democratic Party and the redrawing of constituency boundaries, was elected as the NDP member from Kootenay on August 30, 1972.
In September 1972, Nimsick was appointed Minister of Mines and Petroleum Services and he retained this position until his October 1975 reassignment as Minister of Tourism. Nimsick retired from politics in December 1975.
