Canada election results: Saint-Hyacinthe–Bagot

Global News has declared Bloc Québébois Simon-Pierre Savard-Tremblay the winner of the Saint-Hyacinthe–Bagot riding with 41.4 per cent of the vote.

Voters in Saint-Hyacinthe–Bagot elected NDP Brigitte Sansoucy in the 2015 federal election with 28.7 per cent of the vote.

Sansoucy did seek re-election in the 2019 federal election.

Boundaries: A mid-sized riding an hour east of Montreal, the electoral district includes the regional municipalities of Les Maskoutains and Acton. The largest city by far in the riding is Saint-Hyacinthe.

History: In 2011, NDP candidate Marie-Claude Morin defeated BQ MP Ève-Mary Thaï Thi Lac. Prior to Morin’s election, the riding had gone to the Bloc in every election since 1993.
