In 1838 he was sworn in as a 'castor' of the Association des Chasseurs, founded to drive the English out of Lower Canada. He appears to have been a leader of the rebellion in the St Timothée district. He was captured and tried at Montreal for treason between November 1838 and February 1839. He was first condemned to death, but later was among fifty-eight French Canadians whose sentences were commuted to transportation for life to New South Wales. They arrived in the Buffalo in February 1840. After his arrest and trial he kept a journal [this journal] which gives a full account of the sufferings of the French Canadians in the Buffalo and their experiences in New South Wales. ID271104
