John M. Charlton was a farmer, businessman, politician, office holder, and social reformer. He was a Canadian Member of Parliament and businessman. By 1876 he was advocating an increase in duties to satisfy the party’s protectionist wing. In the two years before the federal election of 1878, however, he was a tireless campaigner for reciprocity, the policy supported by party leaders. In its report of 1890 the commission called for an end to “commercial belligerency” between Canada and the United States. Politics in 19th-century Canada was about business and religion. John Charlton’s career reflects that fact. Charlton was the Member of Parliament for Norfolk North, Ontario for 32 years until 1904. He was the author of "Parliamentary Recollections" and contributed to the North American Review.
