He was born on March 10, 1925 in Montreal, Quebec.
Less than a year later, Premier Johnson died. Cardinal won a by-election and took over Johnson's seat to the National Assembly of Quebec. However, he lost his bid to become his party's leader against Jean-Jacques Bertrand on June 21, 1969.
In the subsequent years, Cardinal joined the Parti Québécois, as did many of his former colleagues from the Union Nationale such as Antonio Flamand, Raynald Fréchette and Jérôme Proulx. In 1976, he was returned to the legislature as the MNA for the district of Prévost and became Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly.
He died in office on March 16, 1979.
