Riding profile

riding map

The Montreal Island riding is a contrasting mix of francophone elites in the borough of Outremont, Montreal's bohemian Mile End neighbourhood and the multi-ethnic, working class Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhood. About 32 per cent of residents spoke a first language other than English or French, according to the 2006 census. The riding's federal counterpart, the seat of NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, shares the name but not the boundaries.

Political history

At the provincial level, Outremont has been reliably, though not always overwhelmingly, Liberal since 1966. It has been the seat of several Liberal cabinet ministers, including Jérôme Choquette (justice, education in the 1970s), Pierre Fortier (finance from 1986 to 1989) and Gérald Tremblay, the former Montreal mayor, who was Quebec's industry minister from 1989 to 1994. Former Liberal finance minister Raymond Bachand won the 2012 election and, after the departure of Jean Charest, joined the party leadership race. After losing his leadership bid to former health minister, Philippe Couillard, Bachand announced he would retire from politics. Couillard, who didn't have a national assembly seat when he was named party leader, ran a successful byelection campaign in the riding vacated by Bachand, once again securing Outremont the Liberals. In this election, Hélène David, sister of Quebec Solidaire co-spokesperson Françoise David, will run as the Liberal candidate, with Couillard moving his campaign to the Roberval riding.
