Mr. Marchildon mentions 20 reasons to argue that the Union Act for the Union of Upper and Lower Canada is unjust, and ought to be repealed. This resolution is an evidence of his quirky character.
Thomas Marchildon (1805-1858) was born in Batiscan in 1805 and became a farmer there. With one of his brothers, he also owned a shipbuilding yard. Marchildon was elected to the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada for Champlain in 1851; he was reelected in 1854 as a member of the parti rouge. In 1858, he was defeated.
