Riding profile

riding map

Chambly is located in the middle of Quebec's Montérégie region, about 25 kilometres east of downtown Montreal. The riding comprises the small city of Chambly (home to Quebec microbrewery Unibroue), as well as the surrounding communities of Carignan, Richelieu, Saint-Basile-le-Grand and Saint-Mathias-sur-Richelieu.

The riding first existed in 1830. In the 2011 rejigging, it lost the municipality of Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.

Political history

Chambly was a bellwether district from 1970 to 2003, voting for the eventual winning party in each election. It was notably the seat of Liberal cabinet minister Pierre Laporte, who was kidnapped by Front de libération du Québec separatists in the October Crisis of 1970 and killed shortly thereafter. It has also been the riding of political veterans Louise Beaudoin (culture minister and minister of international relations in the PQ governments of the mid-1990s and early 2000s) and, before her, Liberal Lucienne Robillard (provincial education minister, health minister and culture minister; later, federal cabinet posts at labour, immigration, industry, Treasury Board and human resources).
