Jean-Pierre Hogue (24 November 1927 – 17 June 2012) was a member of the Canadian House of Commons from 1988 to 1993. He was born in Montreal Quebec. By career, he was a psychologist, professor and writer.

Political career[edit]

He was elected in the 1988 federal election at the Outremont electoral district for the Progressive Conservative Party. It was speculated that he won due to the support of ultra-conservative Hasidic Jews abandoning Liberal incumbent Lucie Pépin due to her support for abortion[1] He was the first non-Liberal Member of Parliament elected since the riding's creation in 1935. He served in the 34th Canadian Parliament until the 1993 federal election at which time he was heavily defeated by Liberal Martin Cauchon. Hogue only finished third, with just under nine percent of the vote.
