J. Paul Marion

Joseph Paul Marion (born December 8, 1927 in St. Boniface, Manitoba) is a retired politician in Manitoba, Canada. He was briefly a member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba during the 1970s, representing the Liberal Party.

Marion was educated at the Angus School of Commerce and Ryerson Polytechnical Institute. He was a successful businessman before entering political life, and served as a company president.

He served as a school trustee from 1967 to 1970, and was a councilor and acting mayor of Winnipeg in 1972-73. Marion was a founder of Club d'Hommes d'Affaires Franco-Manitobain.

In the 1973 provincial election, he was elected over Liberal-turned-NDP incumbent Laurent Desjardins by a single vote. His election was overturned, however, and he lost to Desjardins by 618 votes in a by-election held in late 1974. He did not seek a return to the legislature after this time.
