He was born in Quebec City in 1826, studied law in the office of Georges Etienne Cartier and was called to the bar in 1850. He served in the Assembly of the Province of Canada from 1857 to 1867, and in the House of Commons from 1867 to 1874, and from 1878 to 1896. He was Minister of Public Works from 1869 to 1873, and from 1879 to 1891, but was forced to resign in 1891 following charges of corruption made against his department.
