Riding profile

riding map

This old riding — it dates to 1854 — is in the heart of the Montérégie region, lying southeast of Montreal, south of Chambly and west of Iberville. It includes part of the city of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, home to Royal Military College Saint-Jean. French is by far the most common mother tongue. The riding is one of the 39 that did not get altered in the 2011 realignment of electoral districts.

Political history

Saint-Jean voters can't seem to make up their minds: the last three general elections have seen them choose MNAs from three different parties. Voters here are so ambivalent that the PQ and Liberal candidates tied in the 1994 election. A special re-vote held a month later settled it for the Parti Québécois's Roger Paquin.
