He was first elected to the
Canadian House of Commonsin the 1935 federal election as a Conservative from Vancouver, British Columbiaand served as an Member of Parliament(MP) for twenty eight years. Between his first election in 1935 and the 1949 federal election he was MP for Vancouver South. After that time, he represented the riding of Vancouver Quadrauntil his defeat.
In 1942, he was a candidate at the party's leadership convention, and placed fourth. At the same convention the Conservative Party changed its name to the
Progressive Conservative Party of Canada.
He became Minister of Public Works in the government of Prime Minister
John George Diefenbaker, and Secretary of State for External Affairs in 1959 following the death of Sidney Earle Smith. He was a strong supporter of the Commonwealth of Nations, and advocated nuclear disarmament, backing Diefenbaker's position against having Canada accept nuclear tipped Bomarcmissiles - a position that led to the resignation of several ministers and contributed to the fall of the Diefenbaker government. He helped promote the country's international role until he was defeated along with the Torygovernment in the 1963 federal election.
