1811 - 1903

Born in Amherst, educated at Windsor Academy, and called to the bar in 1834, Dickey practiced law in Amherst and sat in the Legislative Council of Nova Scotia (1858-67). A Father of Confederation, he attended both the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences but refused to subscribe to the Quebec Resolutions until more generous financial terms were conceded in 1866. A widely-travelled and successful Amherst businessman he gave general support to the Conservative Party but played a minor political role. He was called to the Senate in 1867. He died in Amherst.
Avocat et Père de la Confédération, Dickey naquit à Amherst, étudia à l'Académie de Windsor et fut admis au barreau en 1834. Il siéga au Conseil législatif de la Nouvelle-Écosse (1858) avant de devenir sénateur en 1867. Il assista aux Conférences de Charlottetown et de Québec mais refusa de souscrire aux résolutions de Québec jusqu'à ce qu'on accordât à sa province, en 1866, des conditions financières plus généreuses. Grand voyageur, homme d'affaires prospère, il appuya toujours le parti conservateur, mais sans jouer un rôle de premier plan. Il est mort à Amherst.
