After the war he took up farming. He was first elected to the Manitoba Legislature at the 1966 general election, representing the Rock Lake constituency. He was re-elected in 1969, 1973, and 1977 elections but did not stand for re-election in 1981 when his constituency was absorbed into those for Gladstone and Turtle Mountain. He was a founding board member of the Manitoba Centennial Corporation (1963). He died at his home in Glenboro on 8 January 1992 and was buried in Glenboro Cemetery.
