Riding profile

riding map

Saint-Jérôme is in the lower Laurentians, on the southern edge of Montreal cottage country. It was known as the riding of Prévost before the 2011 boundary revisions, and consists of the bottom two-thirds, roughly, of that former electoral district. The riding is co-extensive with the municipality of Saint-Jérôme.

Political history

The predecessor riding of Prévost has flitted between the major Quebec parties, but has mostly supported the Parti Québécois since 1994. It was former PQ industry minister Daniel Paille's seat. In 2012, one of the Coalition avenir Québec's star candidates, former Montreal police chief and head of the province's anti-collusion squad Jacques Duchesneau, defeated the PQ candidate. In February 2014, Duchesneau annouced he was finished with politics and would not be running in the next election. Sensing the opportunity to seize back the seat, the PQ announced in early March that media mogul Pierre Karl Péladeau would be its candidate in the riding.
