3rd Quebec Legislature

The 3rd Legislative Assembly of Quebec was the provincial legislature in Quebec, Canada that existed from July 7, 1875 to May 1, 1878. The Quebec Conservative Party led by Charles Boucher de Boucherville formed a majority government in the 1875 elections. de Boucherville was removed from office in 1878 after a conflict with the Lieutenant Governor Luc Letellier de Saint-Just. The Quebec Liberal Party led by Henri-Gustave Joly de Lotbinière formed a minority government and was the governing party for the first time since the creation of the Legislative Assembly of Quebec. Lotbinière immediately called an election due to the minority status of his government.
