|There was still *a* ghost of Harper-era Con support in '19--after all, it was still by far their best Montreal riding, and there were requisite dots of blue in Hampstead and CSL. But there was also an echo of a pattern evident in ridings like Eglinton-Lawrence where the e-day turnout in the Jewish polls atrophied a *lot* relative to '15--meanwhile, the special balloting nearly doubled over '15, and went CPC 2.7K to the Libs' 2K. (And re memories of another party holding this territory: don't forget the provincial Equality Party interlude. Which doesn't *quite* count, except as a reminder of how the natives could be restless on occasion.)|
|The Conservatives gave the Liberals good reason to sweat the possibility of losing this riding in recent years, but at least for the time being, that threat has passed. This riding has been Liberal in every consecutive election and by-election held since 1940, including the 2002 by-election won by Irwin Cotler with 92% of the vote. |
You would have to be at least an Octogenarian to lay claim to having been alive the last time another party held this seat.
Liberals will win their 28th consecutive victory in Mount Royal.
|On voit mal comment le député sortant pourrait perdre cette circonscription très libérale de l'ouest de l'île de Montréal. Le résultat de la dernière élection parle de lui-même.|
|This is Montreal's main "Jewish" riding. While many supported Harper's pro-Israel stance, there was a strong swing away from the Conservatives in the Jewish community and return to traditional Liberal voting patterns in the 2019 election. Anthony Housefather enjoys wide support in the riding and there won't be any real contest here.|
|CPC won over 80% in most rural Aberta ridings last time.|
