Riding profile

riding map

Nelligan is a Montreal West Island riding containing the city of Kirkland, the Montreal borough of Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève as well as part of the Montreal borough of Pierrefonds–Roxboro. The riding has been around since 1980 and had about seven per cent of its population shifted around in the 2011 boundary revisions. It remains one of the larger ridings in the province by number of voters. 

Political history

Though more residents speak French as their mother tongue than English, the riding is still strongly anti-separatism and has voted by consistently large victory margins for the Liberals. Former Liberal cabinet minister Yolande James easily took the riding again in 2012, with more than 66 per cent of the vote share. In February 2-13, James announced she would not run in the next election because she wanted to spend more time with her young family.
