Trevor Kaine (17 February 1928 – 3 June 2008) was born in Tasmania and educated in Queensland and Victoria. He moved to Canberra in the 1950s while serving in the Royal Australian Air Force, in which he reached the rank of Wing Commander. He believed passionately in Canberra, and was a member of the ACT House of Assembly from 1975 to 1977, and from 1985 until the House was dissolved in 1986 pending the introduction of self-government for the Territory.

In the first general election for the ACT Legislative Assembly in 1989 he stood for the Liberal Party, and was the first Leader of the Opposition. The first Assembly was politically unstable, and on 5 December that year Bernard Collaery, leader of the Residents Rally party, moved a no-confidence motion in the Chief Minister, Rosemary Follett, and proposed that Trevor Kaine form a new government. The vote was carried, and Kaine was elected Chief Minister and leader of the Alliance Government.

The Alliance consisted of the Liberal party and several members of the Residents Rally, and lasted until 28 May 1991, when the Residents Rally party decided to dissolve the Alliance due to internal division. Two members of the party remained with the Kaine government, but a no-confidence motion on 6 June 1991 toppled the Kaine government and reinstated Follett’s Labor government.

Kaine remained Leader of the Opposition through the next general election in 1992, won by Labor, until Kate Carnell took over the leadership of the Liberal party in 1993. The Liberals won the 1995 election and Kaine was appointed Minister for Urban Services. For this election, three multi-member electorates had been created, and Kaine was one of the five representatives for Brindabella. He was re-elected in 1998, but on 13 May that year he resigned from the Liberal Party due to disagreements with Carnell. He formed and led the United Canberra Party until it was deregistered in June 2001, and unsuccessfully contested the 2001 election as an Independent.

During 13 years as a senior public servant and 27 years in ACT politics, Kaine was an effective administrator who enjoyed running his departments and his government. He was also a violinist, a lover of classical music and a watercolour artist. His 22 year career in the RAAF unsurprisingly generated a lifelong love of flying and deep interest in space travel. He died in 2008 from the effects of a stroke four years earlier.
