Longueuil—Saint-Hubert (formerly Longueuil—Pierre-Boucher and Longueuil) is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, represented in the House of Commons of Canada from since 2015 [3]

Geography[edit]

This South Shore district in the Quebec region of Montérégie includes the eastern part of the City of Longueuil.

The neighbouring ridings are Longueuil—Charles-LeMoyne, Montarville, Pierre-Boucher—Les Patriotes—Verchères, La Pointe-de-l'Île, and Hochelaga.

Profile[edit]

This mainly Francophone riding is one of the NDP's safer seats on the South Shore. The NDP did well across the district, with the BQ coming in distant second for the most part. The Liberals and Conservatives did poorly in this riding, although the Liberals had a tiny pocket of somewhat strong support around Parc Michel-Chartrand.[citation needed] Despite winning the riding again in 2015, it was an extremely close contest. The Liberals surged into second place, just one point away from defeating the incumbent NDP candidate.

Demographics[edit]

According to the Canada 2016 Census
  • Twenty most common mother tongue languages (2016) : 83.5% French, 3.5% English, 3.1% Spanish, 2.1% Arabic, 1.0% Creole languages, 0.7% Romanian, 0.6% Farsi, 0.5% Portuguese, 0.5% Italian, 0.5% Russian, 0.5% Vietnamese, 0.4% Mandarin, 0.3% Kabyle, 0.2% Cantonese, 0.2% Greek, 0.1% Polish, 0.1% Ukrainian, 0.1% Bulgarian, 0.1% German, 0.1% Lao, 0.1% Wolof[4]

History[edit]

The electoral district was created as "Longueuil" in 1952 from parts of Chambly—Rouville and Châteauguay—Huntingdon—Laprairie ridings. It was renamed "Longueuil—Pierre-Boucher" in 2004.

This riding was largely replaced with "Longueuil—Saint-Hubert", losing territory to Pierre-Boucher—Les Patriotes—Verchères and gaining territory from Saint-Bruno—Saint-Hubert during the 2012 electoral redistribution.
