Abel LeBlanc (born c. 1936) is a politician in the province of New Brunswick, Canada. He was elected to the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick in 2003.[1]

He represented the electoral district of Saint John Lancaster as a Liberal.

LeBlanc was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, the son of Abel LeBlanc and Domitilde Gallant. He joined the Canadian Army and then went on to work at the Port of Saint John. On February 11, 2010, LeBlanc was expelled from the legislature following a verbal outburst, which included giving two Tory MLAs the finger.[2]

In June 2014 the New Brunswick New Democratic Party announced LeBlanc had joined, and that he will run as their candidate in his former riding for that year's provincial election.[3]
