He was the Minister of Education in the government of Daniel Johnson from January 11, 1994 to September 26, 1994 when the QLP was defeated in the 1994 election. When the QLP retook power in 2003, he was appointed to cabinet by Premier Jean Charest as Minister of Public Security from April 29, 2003 to February 18, 2005. During his time as Minister of Public Security, he had to deal with the Kanesatake crisis. His performance during this time as well as certain remarks that were perceived as offensive towards aboriginals may explain Charest's decision to drop him from cabinet in 2005. Chagnon was the chair the committee on education in the National Assembly until 2007 and was named the Second Vice-President of the National Assembly after the elections.
