Riding profile

riding map

The east-end Montreal riding is middle-class in its northern section, where it borders on Petite Patrie, one of poorest neighbourhoods in the city. Most residents — 70 per cent — are renters rather than homeowners.

The riding's boundaries didn't change in the 2011 adjustments.

Political history

The Liberals won the seat in 1985 and 1989, but since then the Parti Québécois has had it locked down, most recently by MNA and former cabinet minister Louise Beaudoin. Beaudoin, whose first stint in the provincial legislature was in the riding of Chambly, notably left the PQ to sit as an Independent for 10 months until April 2012, when she rejoined the party. High-profile candidate, Jean-François Lisée, ran in Rosemont in 2012 for the PQ and again bested the Liberal competition. He served as the minster responsible for Montreal in the PQ's last cabinet.
