BELLEROSE, Joseph Hyacinthe, Canadian senator, born in Three Rivers in 1820. He has been long and prominently connected with the volunteer militia in Lower Canada, being the first to organize companies in the rural districts after the passing of the militia act of 1854, and later became Lieutenant-Colonel, commanding Laval reserve militia. In 1858 he accepted a captaincy in the 100th regiment of the British army, but soon resigned. He was elected for Laval as a conservative, and represented it in the Canada assembly from 1863 till 1867, and from that date until 1873 (when he was elected to the senate) represented the same constituency in the house of commons. He also represented Laval in the Quebec assembly from the union (1867) until the general election in 1875, when he retired. During the whole of that time he had been chairman of the contingent committee, and as such effected great reductions in the expenses of the house. On two occasions he declined important appointments under government, and after the death of Sir George E. Cartier refused a seat in the cabinet, principally on account of the Pacific railway changes then pending.
