Elizabeth M. "Libbe" Hubley (born September 8, 1942) is a Canadian politician and currently sits in the Canadian Senate representing Prince Edward Island.

In 1989 she was elected to Prince Edward Island's legislative assembly as a Liberal. She was re-elected in 1993 and served as Deputy Speaker of the legislature from 1993 to 1996.

On March 8, 2001, Hubley was appointed to the Canadian Senate on the advice of Prime Minister Jean Chrétien.[1] Beginning in 2006, she was the Deputy Whip of the Liberal Party.

On January 29, 2014, Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau announced all Liberal Senators, including Hubley, were removed from the Liberal caucus, and would continue sitting as Independents.[2] According to Senate Opposition leader James Cowan, the Senators will still refer to themselves as Liberals even if they are no longer members of the parliamentary Liberal caucus.[3]
