Located in southeast New Brunswick, this riding consists of the city of Moncton and the neighbouring towns of Riverview and Dieppe.
There is a large Acadian population: according to the 2006 census, more than 37 per cent of the riding's residents list French as their mother tongue. Over three per cent of residents are immigrants.
Moncton serves as the transport and distribution centre for the region, as well as the regional headquarters of a number of federal government departments. Major employers include the Université de Moncton and several high-tech industries. Twenty per cent of residents over age 25 have a university certificate or degree and the average family income is $71,137. Unemployment is six per cent.
This riding was established in 1966. In the redistributions of 1996 and 2004, about 10 per cent of the population was shifted to other ridings.
Population: 89,334 (2006 census; an increase of 7.4% since 2001)
The Liberals won once again in 2006 as first-time candidate Brian Murphy held off Conservative Charles Doucet. Murphy became the Liberal candidate after incumbent Claudette Bradshaw announced she would not run in the 2006 campaign.
In 2004, Bradshaw had no trouble holding on to the seat, which the party has retained since 1988. Before that, Tories were largely dominant.
George Rideout was the Liberal MP from 1988 until 1997, when Bradshaw won by a comfortable margin over her Tory opponent. A year later, she was named minister of labour. Her re-election in 2000 was by a three-to-one margin over runner-up Kathryn Barnes of the Canadian Alliance.
Bradshaw was moved from labour to become minister of state for human resources development in July 2004.
