La Peltrie is located in the Quebec City area, and includes a chunk of the provincial capital as well as some of the municipalities to its north and west. The riding has been around since 1980, but drastically changed in 2011 when most of its territory was given to the district of Louis-Hébert and La Peltrie gained land from the neighbouring constituency of Chauveau. Past results are not indicative of the current makeup of the riding, in other words.
La Peltrie has been won by the Liberals, PQ and ADQ over the years. Lawrence Cannon, formerly Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Quebec lieutenant and onetime federal minister of foreign affairs, held this seat provincially from 1985 to 1994. He had won it from current PQ Leader Pauline Marois — it was her seat in the early 1980s, while she served in René Lévesque's cabinet.
