Political History
In 2004, the Bloc Québécois candidate, Caroline St. Hilaire, defeated Liberal Robert Gladu to win a third term.

Progressive Conservative Pierre Sevigny won in 1958 and 1962. Liberal Jean-Pierre Coté won three terms beginning in 1963. He was postmaster general, minister of communications and minister of national revenue. Another Liberal, Jacques Olivier, served from 1972 to 1984. PC Nic Leblanc won in 1984 and 1988, but resigned from the PC caucus in 1990, after Meech Lake failed, and joined the Bloc Québécois. In 1993, Leblanc was re-elected for the BQ, defeating Liberal Guy Chartrand. Immediately after Gilles Duceppe became BQ leader in 1997, Leblanc announced he was leaving the BQ caucus to sit as an Independent, but he didn't run again.
