District Profile:This new district, created in 2006, takes the district of Petitcodiac and adds part of the city of Moncton from the district of Moncton Crescent, part of the parish of Brunswick from the electoral district of Grand Lake, and part of the communities of Stilesville and Lutes Mountain. It also includes part of Route 490 from Kent South, and the areas of Millstream, Carsonville and Summerfield from the electoral district of Kings East.
The district's population is 14,581. The old district of Petitcodiac was the birthplace of the Tollbusters, activists who fought the implementation of tolls on the four lanes through the province. Then Opposition Tories pledged to remove tolls if elected. This became the defining issue of the 1999 election and helped get Bernard Lord and his party elected.
