Who was Étienne Parent?

Étienne Parent was a Canadian journalist and government official.

He was editor of the newspaper Le Canadien and, as such, supported French Canadian journalism and writing. He was a close friend and supporter of Lord Gosford.

For his eventual attacks on the government, he was briefly imprisoned, even though he did not actively join the Rebellion of 1837. After the Act of Union of 1840, he became a member of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada.
