Turnbull attended schools at Vankleek Hill, Ontario, Edmonton, and Springhill, Ontario (secondary school number 8). He studied law with F.W.A.G. Haultain in Regina, Saskatchewan.[1]

He was first elected to Parliament at the Regina riding in the 1930 general election after a previous unsuccessful campaign there in the 1925 election. Riding changes meant that Turnbull became a candidate at the new Regina City riding for the 1935 election, but was defeated by Donald McNiven of the Liberal party.
