He served in as a backbench member of the Opposition during a PC majority government, so his Legislative service consisted of sitting on an average of three Standing Committees of the Legislative Assembly during his term in office.

He was a salesman and moved to Fort William in 1935. Freeman was a long-serving member of the Loyal Order of Elk Lodge #82, in Fort William.
