Canada election results: Rivière-du-Nord

Global News has declared Bloc Québécois candidate Rhéal Fortin as the winner in Rivière-du-Nord.

Fortin defeated Liberal candidate Florence Gagnon and Conservative candidate Sylvie Fréchette to retain his seat in the House of Commons.

Boundaries: This riding is slightly smaller than 2011, with the Saint-Colomban area moving into the new Mirabel riding. It is north of Montreal, and its largest centre is Saint-Jérôme.

History: Rivière-du-Nord has represented in the House of Commons since 2004. The riding lost some of its area to Mirabel. The largest center in the district is Saint-Jérôme, where attractions like Musée d’art Contemporain des Laurentides and 19th-century Cathedral Saint-Jérôme are located. Monique Guay had held this riding for the Bloc Québécois from its creation in 2004 until she was defeated in 2011.
