He was also a collaborator for other papers like “Le Canadien” and “L’Événement”, both of Québec, and “Le National” of Montréal. In the elections of 1858, he was deafeated as a “Bleu” candidate in the districts of Chicoutimi and Saguenay. But in a by-election on January 3, 1865, he was elected in that same district; in the House, he was of liberal tendency. His mandate ended with official beginning of the Confederation, on July 1, 1867. This same year, he was elected without opposition as an independant representative for the Chicoutimi and Saguenay district to both the House of Commons of Canada and the Legislative Assembly of Québec. He was re-elected without opposition, but under the liberal banner, at the provincial elections of 1871. He did the same at the federal elections the year after. He resigned his provincial seat on January 17, 1874, because of the abolition of the dual mandate. He was re-elected in Charlevoix at the federal elections in 1874, but his election was cancelled on August 23, 1875. Although he had been defeated in the fedreal by-election of January 22, 1876, he obtained, on February 28, 1877, from the Supreme Court of Canada the invalidation of this election. He was unluncky in winning back his seats, first in federal by-election of March 23, 1877, then in the general provincial elections of 1878. He finnally got back his seat in the House of Commons in 1878. He died in function in Québec. After his funerals celebrated in the Notre-Dame of Québec cathedral, he was buried in the family vault of her wife, in the St Patrick cemetery, in Sillery, on May 21, 1879, and later his remains were transported to the cemetery of the Saint-Etienne parish, in his hometown of La Malbaie.  (bio by: Guy Gagnon)
