LaSalle—Émard is a federal electoral district in the Canadian province of Quebec that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1988. Its population in 2001 was 99,767. It is represented by New Democrat Hélène LeBlanc. The sitting MP from 1988 to 2008 was Paul Martin, who served as prime minister of Canada from 2003 to 2006.

Geography[edit]

The district includes the borough of LaSalle and the Southwest borough's Ville-Émard and Côte-Saint-Paul neighbourhoods. The neighbouring ridings are Notre-Dame-de-Grâce—Lachine, Westmount—Ville-Marie, Jeanne-Le Ber, Brossard—La Prairie and Châteauguay—Saint-Constant.

Political geography[edit]

Historically, the LaSalle part of the riding was quite Liberal, with a few Bloc pockets in the west. Meanwhile, Ville-Émard and Côte-Saint-Paul were mostly Bloc areas. However, the division was swept over by the NDP surge in the 2011 Canadian federal election.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in 1987 from LaSalle, Saint-Henri—Westmount and Verdun—Saint-Paul ridings.
