Profile

He was first elected leader of the conservative Union Nationale party in 1961. The party had governed Quebec with Maurice Duplessis as its leader from 1935 to 1939, then was interrupted by Adélard Godbout's Liberal government before taking power again from 1944 until its defeat in 1960 by Jean Lesage's Liberal Party. The UN's defeat is seen as the beginning of the Quiet Revolution, which sought to overturn the domination of the Quebec economy by English-speaking people, and the dominant role of the Catholic Church in Quebec Society.
