Member of the legislature
Leader of the Opposition
In the 1948 election, Liberal Leader Adélard Godbout lost re-election in the district of L'Islet. Marler took over as Leader of the Official Opposition. Godbout resigned as Liberal Leader on July 22, 1949. At the 1950 Quebec Liberal Party leadership convention, Marler declined nomination, and Georges-Émile Lapalme became the new party leader on May 20, 1950. However, Lapalme failed to win a seat in the legislature in the 1952 election, so Marler continued as Leader of the Opposition until Lapalme won a by-election in 1953.

Marler resigned from the legislature on June 30, 1954, and was appointed to the federal cabinet of Louis Saint-Laurent as minister of transport. Later that year he won a by-election and became the Member of Pariliament for the federal district of Saint-Antoine—Westmount. He was re-elected in the 1957, but was defeated in 1958.
He died on April 10, 1981 in Montreal.
