Electoral map: Direction of the addition of two electoral districts in Laurentides-Lanaudière

A proposal for a new electoral map for Quebec was presented in the National Assembly on Tuesday by the Commission on Electoral Representation (CRE), with the law requiring such a vote after two general elections.

The main changes proposed concern the Laurentides-Lanaudière region, which will receive two new areas: Les Plaines and Prévost. The first will be made up of sectors in the Masson and Mirabel constituencies, while the second will come from Bertrand and Rousseau.

This addition is due to “the significant increase in the number of voters in this area,” explains the CRE.

Montreal and Mauricie each lose a ride

In two other regions there are changes that lead to the loss of one constituency each. On the island of Montreal, Outremont – which includes the entire area of ​​the Outremont district as well as part of the Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce district – will join Mont-Royal to create a new riding area that will do so will be called Mont-Royal-Outremont.
