  • Marcel Prud'homme, PC (born November 30, 1934) was a member of the Canadian Senate and was a long-time Member of Parliament (MP) in the Canadian House of Commons.Prud'homme was first elected to the House of Commons in a 1964 by-election as Liberal MP for Saint-Denis, Quebec. He was subsequently re-elected eight times. He served as Parliamentary Secretary from 1971 to 1974 to the Minister of Manpower and Immigration, Secretary of State for Canada, and to the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion successively. For most of his career, however, Prud'homme was a backbencher. He was particularly outspoken in his support for Palestinian causes and in his opposition to Zionism and this may have hindered the prospects of his serving in the Canadian Cabinet.[citation needed] In 1989, while in Opposition, he became the Liberal Party's Critic for Arms Control and Disarmament. In 1992, he became Chair of the Quebec Liberal Caucus. On July 1, 1992, Prud'homme was appointed to the Queen's Privy Council for Canada in honour of his long service as a parliamentarian. In 1993, Progressive Conservative Prime Minister Brian Mulroney appointed Prud'homme to the Canadian Senate where he took his seat as an Independent. The Liberals saw this move as an attempt to provide a non-partisan cover to various patronage appointments Mulroney made at the end of his term as Prime Minister.He resigned in 2009 at 75 as the law required.
