This urban riding is located east of Montreal, across the St. Lawrence
River. It consists of that part of the city of Longueuil that was created
from the former cities of St-Hubert and St-Bruno-de-Montarville. St-Hubert
Airport is also in the riding.
Manufacturing, retail trade and the service sector are major employers in this riding. Average family income is $69,432 and unemployment is 5.7 per cent.
According to the 2001 census, 84 per cent of the population is francophone and eight per cent is anglophone.
There was no change in the 2004 redistribution. The riding of St-Hubert
was created in 1986 from 54 per cent of Chambly, 21 per cent of La Prairie
and 15 per cent of Longueuil. In 1996, 64 per cent of the riding was retained
and 23 per cent of Chambly and a small area from Longueuil were added.
A private member's bill passed in 1996 changed the riding name to St-Bruno-St-Hubert.
In 2004, Bloc Québécois candidate Carole Lavallée won
her first term as an MP, defeating Liberal Marc Savard with 55 per cent
of the vote. In 2000, the BQ's Pierrette Venne won her second term in
St-Bruno-St-Hubert. Venne was first elected in 1988 as a Progressive Conservative
in St-Hubert riding, defeating Liberal Raymond Dupont, who had been an
MP in the former Chambly riding. Venne resigned from the PC caucus in
1991 and announced in 1993 that she was joining the BQ. Party leader Gilles
Duceppe expelled Venne from the BQ caucus in 2003 because of her "destructive
attitude" toward the BQ caucus and disregard of her parliamentary duties.
The riding of Chambly was Liberal from 1935 to 1980 inclusive, except for a 1958 Tory win. In 1979 and 1980, Dupont was MP. In 1984, PC Richard Grise defeated him.
