He was first elected to the Manitoba legislature in the provincial election of 1962, defeating incumbent Progressive Conservative George Johnson [2] by 239 votes in the west-end Winnipeg riding of Assiniboia. He was re-elected by a greater margin in the 1966 election, but retained his seat by only 26 votes over Tory Bill Docking in the 1969 election. [3]

The once-dominant Manitoba Liberal Party was reduced to only five seats in the 1969 election, and dropped to four when Laurent Desjardins decided to support the New Democratic Party. Patrick was re-elected in 1973, [2] but lost his seat to Tory candidate Norma Price in the 1977 election, amid the Liberal Party's continued decline. [3]

The son of Alexandre and Katie Patrebka, he was educated in Glenella, at the Manitoba Teachers College and at Success Community Business College. In 1956, he married Marjorie June Mathieson. [1]
