New Brunswick election: Memramcook-Tantramar

Riding background

The 2013 redistricting process saw portions of the former Memramcook-Lakeville-Dieppe riding and the Tantramar riding merged.

The decision was very controversial to the province’s francophone community, who took legal action to challenge the redistricting. They claimed they were being forced into an anglophone riding.
