Geography

The district includes the Borough of Saint-Laurent and the neighbourhood of Cartierville in the Borough of Ahuntsic-Cartierville. The neighbouring ridings are Ahuntsic, Mount Royal, Notre-Dame-de-Grâce—Lachine, Pierrefonds—Dollard, Laval—Les Îles and Laval.

History

The electoral district of Saint-Laurent was created in 1987 from Dollard, Laval-des-Rapides and Saint-Denis. The name was changed to Saint-Laurent—Cartierville in 1989.

This riding lost territory to Ahuntsic-Cartierville during the 2012 electoral redistribution.

It is currently represented by Stéphane Dion, former leader of the Liberal Party. It has long been reckoned as one of the safest Liberal ridings in the nation.
