Louis-Alexandre Taschereau was a lawyer, liberal politician, and the 14th Premier of the Canadian province of Quebec from 1920 to 1936. He was elected four times. The longevity of Taschereau’s term as Premier and Member of the Legislative Assembly is quite remarkable. In fact, he was an MLA for over 35 years, from 1900 until his resignation on June 11, 1936. He served during the Great Depression and he adopted the first Unemployment Act. Son and father of Supreme Court justices. He was named an Officer of the Legion of Honour in 1924 and a Commander in 1927, and received the Grand Cross in 1934.
