Jean-Guy Cardinal

Jean-Guy Cardinal

Jean-Guy Cardinal was a nationalist politician in Quebec, Canada.

Background

He was born on March 10, 1925 in Montreal, Quebec.

Union Nationale

Cardinal was a supporter of the Union Nationale. He was appointed to the Legislative Council of Quebec and to Daniel Johnson, Sr.'s Cabinet in 1967 and became Minister of Education.

Less than a year later, Premier Johnson died. Cardinal won a by-election and took over Johnson's seat to the National Assembly of Quebec. However, he lost his bid to become his party's leader against Jean-Jacques Bertrand on June 21, 1969.

Cardinal won re-election to the legislature in 1970, but did not run for re-election in 1973.

Parti Québécois

In the subsequent years, Cardinal joined the Parti Québécois, as did many of his former colleagues from the Union Nationale such as Antonio Flamand, Raynald Fréchette and Jérôme Proulx. In 1976, he was returned to the legislature as the MNA for the district of Prévost and became Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly.

Death

He died in office on March 16, 1979.
