Born Christopher Brian Spencer Dobson in Bolton, Lancashire, his great-grandfather was Sir Benjamin Dobson who made his wealth as a manufacturer of textile machinery. Dobson was educated at Radley College and graduated in Law at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. In 1957, he emigrated to Canada and received a Master of Civil Law degree from McGill University in 1959.[1]

In 1960, he worked as a private secretary to Davie Fulton, the Minister of Justice, while in his spare time was a stand-up comedian. This caused a minor scandal when it was revealed in the House of Commons of Canada.[1]
