John Le Boutillier, tireless trader
A prominent figure in 19th century Gaspésie, John Le Boutillier was born on the island of Jersey and pursued two careers throughout his life. As a politician, he fiercely defended the region’s interests. And as an energetic businessman and self-made man, he was at the forefront of the dry salted cod trade (the famous Gaspé cure), an industry that is inseparable from the history of the Gaspésie.
