From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maxime Raymond (born 25 December, 1883 in Saint-Stanislas-de-Kostka; died 13 July, 1961) was a lawyer, business person and politician in Quebec, Canada. [1]

Raymond ran as a Liberal candidate in the district of Beauharnois in 1925 and won. He was re-elected in 1926 and 1930. In 1935 and 1940 he was elected in the district of Beauharnois—Laprairie. Raymond was one of three Liberal MPs who broke with the party to oppose Canada's entry into World War II in 1939 arguing that Canada should restrict its efforts to home defence and not send its troops abroad.[2]

He formally left the Liberals over the issue of conscription and became the Leader of the Bloc Populaire Canadien on February 10, 1943. Raymond was re-elected in 1945 as a Bloc Populaire MP but did not run for re-election in 1949.
