This riding includes New Brunswick’s capital city, as well as rural areas to the north and east.
Liberal MP Andy Scott held this seat from 1993 until his retirement from politics in 2008, when Conservative MP and former cabinet minister Keith Ashfield won. In many ways his victory was a return to form for the riding—Fredericton was a Progressive Conservative seat from 1957 to 1993.
