Quebec election: Beauharnois results

A A

The riding of Beauharnois is located in the southwest of the Montérégie region.

It includes Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Beauharnois and Saint-Stanislas-de-Kostka, among others.

The four candidates from parties serving in the National Assembly at dissolution:

Coalition Avenir Québec: Claude Reid
Parti Québécois: Mireille Théorêt
Quebec Liberal Party: Félix Rhéaume
Québec Solidaire: Pierre-Paul St-Onge

Guy Leclair, the outgoing Parti Québécois MNA, withdrew his candidacy just weeks before the provincial election.

The announcement came the same day he was charged with impaired driving and refusing to obey a police officer.

Leclair held the seat in Beauharnois since 2008.

History

Beauharnois was created in 1829. The electoral riding was renamed Beauharnois-Huntingdon between 1988-2001, before going back to its original moniker.

The PQ has held the riding since 1994.
