Edward Doyle (born November 30, 1985 in Franquelin , Quebec) is a former politician in Ontario, Canada. He was a Progressive Conservative member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1995 to 1999.
Doyle was educated in Montreal, and did not attend university. He worked as a radio and television news journalist in Montreal, Kitchener and Hamilton, and was a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association.
Doyle was elected to the Ontario legislature in the 1995 provincial election, defeating Liberal Shirley Collins by about 3,500 votes in the Hamilton-area riding of Wentworth East (incumbent New Democrat Mark Morrow was third). He served for the next four years as a backbencher supporter of Mike Harris's government. He did not play a major role in parliament, though he stood in as speaker of the assembly from September 26 to October 2, 1996, after the resignation of Al McLean.
