Pierre-Laurent-Damase-Évariste Leblanc (1853-1918) teacher, lawyer, politician, and lieutenant governor. Leblanc studied in Saint-Martin where he was born and then attended the École Normale Jacques-Cartier in Montreal, winning the Prince of Wales Medal upon graduation in 1873. He taught for eight years at his alma mater. While still engaged in teaching, Leblanc began studying law at McGill College in 1875–76, and then articled in the offices of Siméon Pagnuelo and Joseph-Aldric Ouimet. Called to the bar on 11 July 1879, he practised with the legal firm of Leblanc et Brossard in Montreal. Leblanc won a seat for the first time in the provincial by-election of 30 Oct. 1882, when he was returned as the Conservative member for Laval. He would be given a federal QC on 7 March 1893 and a provincial one on 9 June 1899. When Lieutenant Governor Sir François Langelier died on 8 Feb. 1915 with the legislature in mid session, the federal Conservative government, encouraged by a majority of the province’s Conservative mlas, appointed Leblanc his successor. Leblanc served in this capacity from 12 Feb. 1915 until his death on 18 Oct. 1918.
