Gabriel Loubier

Gabriel Loubier

Gabriel Loubier (born September 27 1932 in Black Lake, Quebec) was a politician in Quebec, Canada. He served as leader of the "Union Nationale" party from 1971 to 1974, and as Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly of Quebec from 1971 to 1973.

He was first elected in Bellechasse in 1962 and became UN leader in July 1971, replacing former Premier Jean-Jacques Bertrand as party leader and leader of the Opposition. From October 25, 1971, to January 14, 1973, the "Union Nationale" temporarily changed its name to "Unité Québec".

In the 1973 election, the "Union Nationale" was wiped off the electoral map, winning no seats, and Loubier ceased to be leader of the Opposition. He resigned as UN party leader in March 1974.
