He got a seat in parliament because not knowing Pitt he wrote and asked him for help and his letter persuaded Pitt to meet him.

Canning had offered to be prime minster wen Portland resigned but, King George III did not accept and chose Spencer Perceval instead. He eventually became prime minster when Lord Liverpool resigned due to his stroke. In turn after 119 days as prime minster Canning died.
