In 1819 Robert Christie was secretary of the Gaspe Lands Claims Commission. We find
his signature on many land deeds and he became a Gaspesian landowner and summer resident
at Cross Point. He published in 1818 and 1820 many Memoirs on the Administration of
Lower Canada. He wrote a History of the late province of Lower Canada in six volumes.
In 1827 Robert Christie was elected to represent the District of Gaspe in the Legislature
Assembly seat. He was opposed by the members of the French Canadian majority and expelled
from the House on the grounds that he had, as Chairman of the Quarter Sessions of the
District of Quebec, advised the omission of the names of certain reformers from the
Commission of Peace. Between that time and 1834 he was re-elected no less than five times
by his loyal constituents of Gaspesia and again expelled each time from the Assembly.
Not until the elections of 1841, following the union of Lower and Upper Canada did he
succeed in taking his seat in Parliament. From 1841 to 1854 he was a sitting member of
Parliament. The Christie home in Quebec was for many years on the square know today as
the Jardin des Gouverneurs, the location of the Wolfe - Montcalm Monument overlooking
the Dufferin Terrace, adjacent to the Chateau Frontenac. Later Christie's family home was
on the street that bears his name in the City of Quebec...
