Roger Stuart Bacon (born June 29, 1926) is a retired Nova Scotia politician who was the 21st Premier of Nova Scotia from 1990 to 1991.

Born in Upper Nappan, Nova Scotia, Bacon was a farmer when he was first elected to the Nova Scotia House of Assembly in 1970 as a Progressive Conservative. When the Tories won election in 1978, Bacon was Minister of Tourism before becoming Minister of Agriculture in the cabinet of Premier John Buchanan from 1979 to 1988. Bacon then became Deputy Premier and Minister of Housing until 1990, when he succeeded Buchanan to become interim leader of the party and caretaker premier of the province for six months until the party chose Donald W. Cameron as its new leader.


In 2006, Bacon's portrait was created by Canadian artist Christian Cardell Corbet.[1]
