    Russell was a federal and provincial electoral district in eastern Ontario, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1968, and in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1867 to 1967. The federal riding was created by the British North America Act of 1867, and consisted initially of the County of Russell the townships of Gloucester and Osgoode in the county of Carleton. In 1903, the Rideau Ward of the city of Ottawa was added to the riding. In 1933, it was redefined to consist of the county of Russell and the part of the county of Carleton included in the township of Gloucester, excepting that part of the township of Gloucester included in the town of Eastview and the village of Rockcliffe Park. In 1947, it was expanded to include the town of Eastview in the township of Gloucester in the county of Carleton. The federal electoral district was abolished in 1966 when it was redistributed between Glengarry—Prescott, Ottawa East and Ottawa—Carleton ridings.

Examples of Russell in a Sentence

  1. Kurt Russell:

    I didn't want to have a long name, Russell Estates or something. I didn't think trying to slap a name on a bottle that people might recognize was not only, to me, not necessarily a good thing, I thought it was a drawback, gogi is an old nickname of mine, so the brand is GoGi.

  2. Ryan Russell:

    I rationalized my fear because it was easy to convince Ryan Russell that hiding who I was made the most sense. The competition is so stiff to stay in the league, that any small mark can lead a front office to choose another guy for your job.

  3. Scott Brooks:

    Russell’s accomplishments and honors on the court speak for themselves, but his drive and will to win are what separate him as a truly unique player, as much as I’m looking forward to reuniting with him, I’m equally sad to say good-bye to John. He is one of the toughest and most gifted players I’ve ever been around and we all wish him nothing but the best moving forward.

  4. Orrin Hatch:

    I would be glad to do that. I think, John Thune know, Richard Brevard Russell was a powerhouse here but most people don't know who Richard Brevard Russell was. And John McCain ? John McCain was John McCain whether John Thune liked some of John McCain approach is or not. I liked them and I'd be for that.

  5. Bob Cousy:

    I've never been Bob Cousy, i've always been a private person that's had to live Bill Russell life in a public bubble. My style in those days was, try to be helpful and do it by example rather than getting up and screaming at the press.
