CHENIER, John-Oliver, Canadian physician, born in Longueil, Canada, in 1806: died in 1837. He studied medicine at Montreal, receiving his degree in 1828, and settled at St. Benoit, but removed to St. Eustache in 1831, and began to take part in polities. In 1832 his name appeared at the head of a protest against the alleged robbery of the public lands, and he acted as secretary to an assembly convoked to censure the conduct of the English troops that had slain several Canadians in a riot on 21 May. He was one of the most vehement speakers at the revolutionary meetings that took place in 1837, and a reward of $2,000 was offered by the Governor-general for his arrest. He gathered a large force of insurgents at St. Eustache, in the county of Deux-Montagnes; but they were defeated by the English troops, and Chenier was killed in attempting to cut his way through the opposing ranks.
