Political History
In 2004, Bloc Québécois candidate Johanne Deschamps received almost twice as many votes as Liberal Dominique Boyer in Laurentides-Labelle. Deschamps had lost to Liberal Robert Bertrand in Pontiac-Gatineau-Labelle in 2000.

In 2000 in Laurentides, BQ candidate Monique Guay also defeated Boyer to win a third term.

Liberal Henri Bourassa was MP in Labelle riding from 1896-1930. He was founder of the newspaper Le Devoir and a strong voice against conscription and for Quebec nationalism.

Liberal Maurice Dupras won the 1970 byelection in Labelle and was re-elected for another four terms. He was appointed Consul General in Bordeaux, France, in 1984. Prime Minister Brian Mulroney cancelled the appointment when the Progressive Conservatives took office and Dupras sued. Tory Fernand Ladouceur won in 1984, and in 1988, PC Jacques Vien became the riding's MP.
