On the system of Administration known as the Responsible Government that was introduced at the time of the Union between Upper and Lower Canada in 1841, and the extreme dissatisfaction of the Upper Canadian Representatives with the recent changes in Provincial Administration.

He served as both premier and Attorney-General of Ontario from July 16, 1867, to December 20, 1871.
