Mort Pomeroy (d. 1943) was a native of Rosenfeld, Manitoba, Canada. He was the husband of Mary McGregor Pomeroy and the father of Alec Pomeroy as well as the proprietor of Pomeroy's Diner. While disliking the Yankee occupiers, like most Canadians, he was not directly involved in resisting them and preferred to make the best of life under the occupation (with considerable financial success). He was extremely concerned that his wife's hatred for the United States and especially her various terrorist bombings of US targets would land her in trouble and urged her to cease and desist. She refused, and in 1942 his worst fears were realized when she was executed by US authorities.
Anger at the death of his beloved wife drove him to greater militancy. Later that year, when Manitoba became a hotbed for the Canadian resistance, Pomeroy joined up. When the US Army moved to suppress resistance activity, Pomeroy made his diner a rebel stronghold. He and his fellow fighters were killed in the destruction of the diner; only young Alec survived.
