The NDP has chosen former Quebec Green Party leader Eric Ferland to take on Pierre Nantel:
16/09/19 Daniel Beaudin
NDP announced that environmentalist Eric Ferland (ex Quebec Green party chief)is the choosen candidate to replace Nantel. That is going to set up a great race, perhaps one of the closest in Quebec. Right now Liberal Hebert is getting the heat from the separatists and is accused of being a traitor for changing sides, that could create favorable movement for Bloc candidate Denis Trudel. Ferland will split the green vote with Nantel who ‘crossed the lawn’ and went to the Greens. Not to mention the return of PC's Patrick Clune who might be an answer for the betrayed Liberals that don't see a liberal separatist in Longueuil.Your guess is as good as mine.
This one is going to be too close to call till the very end. This riding is split between nationalist and federalist vote. How many votes will Nantel bring with him to the Greens? How many NDP votes will the BQ Trudel need to beat Hebert? Will fourth time PC runner Clune chew enough liberal votes to pave the way for a Bloc win? We will just have to wait and see.

CBC reports that former PQ health minister Réjean Hébert was confirmed today as the Liberal candidate for Longueuil—Saint-Hubert

Yes, it's definitely possible that Nantel might fare better as a Green than as a Dipper; but not in the ‘winnability’ sense--at best, he's the Bruce Hyer of this cycle. And a former PQ minister turned Liberal is the best imaginable metaphor for where this particular geography's gone in the Justin era, so in the end who cares about the lesser matter of NPD gone Green. (Still a ‘work in progress’, though.)

Clearly a stump about to be ripped up. Réjean Hébert has got to be a solid favourite to win here.

Pierre Nantel is running for Greens now. I'm really not sure it will change something for him. But it will be a very interesting race. Réjean Hebert, former health minister in PQ Cabinet will probably run for the Liberals. And Denis Trudel, a well known actor, will run for the Bloc. TCTC at this time.

It's just been announced that Pierre Nantel will be running here for the Greens. I can't see that being the ticket to his re-election when he was apparently so far behind as a New Democrat and when the Greens have no significant established support here (put another way: Nantel without the Greens was going to lose handily, and the Greens without Nantel were going to lose handily, so why would the combination of the two be a contender?), but it does change the complexion of the race somewhat.
18/08/20 Marco Ricci
The NDP has removed MP Pierre Nantel as the candidate for this riding after it was revealed he was in discussions with Elizabeth May of the Green Party:
02/08/20 Marco Ricci
It was reported by the Quebec media today that a Conservative internal poll shows the Liberals with a good lead here, BQ 2nd, and NDP way down in single digits:
LIB 40.4
BQ 28.6
NDP 6.4
10/07/19 Daniel Beaudin
This is one that we are not finished taking about since Rejean Hébert, the ex PQ Health Minister landed in the liberal nomination contest today. He is facing a 10-year long local city councillor, Eric Beaulieu. Hebert says Trudeau invited him in this race, I’m not so sure. Our PM must have been smoking a lot of the product he legalized to bring on board a separatist minister with the liberals. The outcome of this election is going to be good till the last drop. Jagmeet Singh’s unpopularity in Quebec will make the incumbent NDP a distant third. The nationalist and separatists roots of the voters that gave an uncontested landslide win to the CAQ on the south Shore of Montreal in the last provincial election should play a big difference on the result and help the Bloc. But this one is really to close to call for now.
08/07/19 Marco Ricci
Radio Canada journalist Louis Blouin reports that former PQ health minister Réjean Hébert will run in Longueuil–Saint-Hubert for the Liberals:
03/03/19 Sam
This riding is going to be competitive, with both the Bloc and the Liberals in a good position to take the seat. Pierre Nantel himself acknowledged he is in trouble and that Jagmeet Singh could hurt his chances here, something that may shift votes to the Bloc. The Bloc have to still overtake the second-placed Liberals which may be a challenge for them, and so neither party can really be written off here. The NDP incumbent is definitely in a bad position.
