In 1839, appointed to the Council of Assiniboia, formed by the HBC to govern the Red River colony, but he had little interest in such activities. Writing to James HARGRAVE in 1839 he said, “I will not be at the Council in Red River - I can be of more use at my post, in ‘trading a skin’; than at the Council, as Legislator I have no great ambition, to shine as an Orator, that I leave to young Gentlemen, better qualified.”
