Election map: move out Montreal and Mauricie to dress the Laurentians and Lanaudière

In Quebec's next election, the Laurentians and Lanaudière would have two additional constituencies, while Montreal and Mauricie would each lose one, according to the Commission on Electoral Representation (CRE) report tabled in the National Assembly on Tuesday.

The next provincial election would see changes in seven of Montreal's 28 districts, mostly in the center of the island. Sainte-Marie-Saint-Jacques would disappear in favor of a new constituency called Ville-Marie.

This new riding area would also include part of Westmount-Saint-Louis and certain parts of downtown to bring together most of downtown Montreal.

Across Quebec, the current map shows 11 electoral districts that do not comply with the legal framework, and several other electoral districts are on the verge of exceeding the thresholds allowed by the law.

The revised proposal maintains the current demarcation of 97 of the 125 electoral districts.
