His role in controversial part of Canadian History: From Official archives, of Canada:

Archdiocese of Quebec, The Chancellery Quebec, 27 June, 1940 Dear Sir: His Eminence the Cardinal would be happy if you would draw the attention of the Right Honorable Mr. Ernest Lapointe, Minister of Justice, to the enclosed leading editorial of Quebec, concerning the publications of the Watch Tower or Jehovah’s Witnesses. Certain books and pamphlets again recently addressed through the mail, and in particular the periodical Consolation, are all that which is the most demoralizing and most destructive of the spiritual strength of the country. Thanking you in advance, dear Sir, for your kind attention to this letter, I remain Yours very truly, Paul Bernier, Chancellor To: The Private Secretary of the Rt. Hon. Ernest Lapointe Minister of Justice OTTAWA, Ontario The foregoing letter was, in reality, a demand from the cardinal that Lapointe have Jehovah’s Witnesses declared illegal. Lapointe knew his power depended on the cardinal and was quick to respond. The next feature in this drama of secrecy and intrigue is the following letter (translated from French), sent one week later by Lapointe’s private secretary to Cardinal Villeneuve’s chancellor: PERSONAL July 4, 1940 Monsignor Paul Bernier Chancellor of the Archdiocese Palace of the Cardinal QUEBEC Mr. Chancellor: Upon receipt of your letter of June 27, I took it upon myself to fulfill His Eminence the Cardinal’s desire to direct the attention of the Minister to your representations as well as to the editorial published by L’Action Catholique with regard to the Watch Tower, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Consolation. Mr. Lapointe gave me permission to let you know by telephone the confidential information that the said organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses would be declared illegal as of today, with the request that His Eminence, the Cardinal, be informed of this. This letter is to confirm that which I just told you over the telephone. I understand that His Eminence the Cardinal will be duly informed of the departmental order regarding Jehovah’s Witnesses. Please accept, Mr. Chancellor, my expression of thanks and my warmest regards. The letter was signed by Lapointe’s private secretary. From the time of the cardinal’s demand, it had taken just seven days to get the ban imposed. There was great rejoicing in the cardinal’s palace. His chancellor wrote to Lapointe’s private secretary on July 8, 1940. As translated from French, that letter stated: I am most obliged by your eagerness to draw the attention of the Right Honorable Mr. Lapointe to the subject of my letter of June 27. I have no need to add,—since His Eminence will have already written to Mr. Lapointe to state his satisfaction over the departmental order in question,—just how much such a prompt and happy solution deserves our commendation and thanks. Please accept a renewed expression of my gratitude and of my deepest regards. Paul Bernier, priest. - Thank-you!--Anaccuratesource (talk) 04:53, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
