TASSE, Joseph, Canadian author, born in Montreal, 23 October, 1848. He was educated at Bourget's college, and afterward connected himself with the press. In 1867 he became editor of "Le Canada" at Ottawa, and from 1869 till 1872 he was associate editor of "La Minerve " in Montreal, and at the same time a director of "Le revue Canadienne," to which he contributed essays on history, literature, and political economy. He was afterward employed as assistant French translator of the house of commons, and in 1873 visited Europe, publishing a detailed account of his travels. He was elected president of the French Canadian institute of Ottawa in 1872 and 1873, was a delegate to the French national convention at Montreal in 1874, and took an active part in its deliberations regarding the return of expatriated Canadians from the United States. He declined to become a candidate for the Canadian parliament in 1874, was elected to that body for Ottawa in 1878, and was re-elected in 1882. He was chosen president of the Quebec press association in 1883, and has been a frequent lecturer before national and literary societies in Canada and the United States. Among other works he has published the pamphlets "Philemon Wright, ou colonisation et commerce de bois" (Montreal, 1871); "Le chemin de fer Canadien Pacifique" (1.872) ; and "Le vallde de l'Outawais" (1872); and, in book-form, "Les Canadiens de l'ouest" (2 vols., 1878). The purport of the last work is to demonstrate that French Canadians have been chiefly the pioneers and discoverers of the United States and also the Canadian northwest. It has been partly translated in the collections of the Historical society of Wisconsin.
