Riding profile

The Sherbrooke riding is in the heart of the main city in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, including Shebrooke's districts of Jacques-Cartier and Mont-Bellevue.
Former Liberal leader Jean Charest held the seat from the time he entered provincial politics in 1998 until the time his party fell into opposition in 2012.

Not only did the Liberals lose their governing majority in 2012, Charest’s home riding constituents ousted him in favour of the PQ's Serge Cardin.

The riding was created in 1829.
