He showed his entrepreneurial skills at the young age of 12 in 1931, when he sold The Montreal Standard. Later on, he sold the Halifax Herald. As a result, he saved enough money to buy a used bicycle, an accordion, two pairs of boxing gloves, a house pump and bicycle horn. Léo tried his luck at many occupations, varying in time from one week as a dog catcher to 16 years as a provincial gasoline tax inspector and about 15 years as an electrician. He established his own electrical appliances business in 1953, Léo's Appliances. He worked on major projects as an electrician for a Sydney company in the early 1960s: Shopping Centres, Co-ops, N.-D.-A. school in Cheticamp.

In the same year, he worked as construction supervisor for the cultural center Les Trois Pignons (he sold all the material at cost). Between 1977 and 1980, he worked with his son Daniel, as they had formed their own electrical company Alouette Ltée.

As a Second World War veteran, he belonged to the Royal Canadian Corps of Signal and later he was transferred to the North Nova Highlanders. Léo was maybe not the best soldier, but he was good for the morale. He would round up the Germans and his friend Angus would capture them. From 1953 to 1954, he was president of the Cheticamp branch of the Canadian Legion. From 1988 to 1997, Léo did all the maintenance work at Le Manoir Saint-Pierre. As recently as two weeks ago, he was still changing fluorescent lights. Since 1992, he was also the manager of this residential co-operative He was a proud member of Alcoholics Anonymous since the late 1960s. He enjoyed playing cards but his favourite pastime was gardening and he was a very meticulous gardener. There wasn't one plant out of place in his vegetable kingdom. He was one of the founders of L'orchestre des retraités. From 1970 to 1980, he was president of La Société Saint-Pierre and he served on the Board of Directors from 1983 to 1989.
