LAFLAMME, Toussaint Antoine Radolphe, Canadian statesman, born in Montreal, 15 May, 1827. He was educated at St. Sulpice college, and was admitted to the bar of Lower Canada in 1849. He was one of the earliest members of the Lower Canada " Rouge" party, was chief editor of the party organ, "L'Avenir," and identified himself with the extreme views of the most radical of his countrymen. When only nineteen years of age he was elected president of the Institute Canadien of Montreal, of which he was one of the founders. He was counsel for the seigneurs who claimed their indemnity in virtue of the seignorial act of 1857-'8, was appointed queen's counsel in 1863, and has been professor of the law of real property in McGill university, from which he received the degree of D. C. L. in 1873. In 1872 Mr. Laflamme was elected for Jacques Cartier to the Canadian parliament, and he represented that constituency till 1878. In November, 1876, he became a member of the privy council as minister of inland revenue, and on 8 June, 1877, he was made minister of justice, which office he held until the resignation of the government in September, 1878. While holding this office Mr. Laflamme introduced a bill for further securing the independence of parliament, a bill giving to the decrees of the Ontario maritime court the same meaning and weight as are attached to those of the court of chancery, and one providing for the abolition of the office of receiver-general. He declined a puisne judgeship in the supreme court in 1875.
