Riding profile

riding map

This Ottawa riding includes all of the former city of Vanier and part of the former city of Gloucester.

The riding extends out from the Vanier city limits to Nicholas Street and the Queensway in the northeast, and encompasses part of the affluent Rockcliffe Park in the northwest. It also stretches into part of the former city of Gloucester to the east, and to the Ottawa city limits in the south.

The University of Ottawa is located within this riding.

As a result of the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Ottawa-Vanier combined 33 per cent of Carleton East and virtually all of Ottawa East.

Political history

Liberal incumbent Madeleine Meilleur defeated Progressive Conservative Fred Sherman by 10,690 votes in 2011.

She ttrounced Tory rival Bruce Poulin by 11,785 votes in the 2007 election. Meilleur also won easily in the 2003 election, beating Maurice Lamirande by almost 13,000 votes.

Liberal Claudette Boyer won this seat in 1999, but held it very briefly.

That same year, she pleaded guilty to an obstruction of justice charge stemming from an incident in which her husband accidentally struck Liberal colleague Bernard Grandmaître's son with a van and Boyer tried to convince others to accept blame for the mishap.

Boyer was suspended from the Liberal caucus for six months in 2000.

Prior to redistribution in 1999, Grandmaître had held the Ottawa East riding since a 1984 byelection. The riding had been held by the Liberals since 1971.
