The incumbent in this riding was Liberal MNA Jacques Chagnon, who is retiring after being in power since 1994.

Jennifer Maccarone is running for the Liberals.

She is the former president of the Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) and a vocal opponent to Bill 86, the Liberals’ now-defunct school board reform legislation.

History

The riding of Westmount-Saint-Louis was established in 1912 under the name, Westmount.

Its name was changed to Westmount–Saint-Georges in 1939, but became Westmount once again in 1965.

It was changed to Westmount–Saint-Louis in 1992, following its merger with the electoral division of Saint-Louis.

Since then, the Liberals have been in power.
