a Canadian writer; he worked as a journalist at the Quebec Mercury and Le Canadien and is credited with writing the first French Canadian novel, L'influence d'un livre. The story is made up of various fictionalised historical events, legends and folksongs which show the influence of father's recollections. Despite now being recognised as a major landmark in Canadian literature the book was not well received and Philippe died shortly afterwards in Halifax where he was buried in front of the present-day Spring Garden Road Public Library.
