Riding Overview

Madawaska—Restigouche, in northwest New Brunswick, is a Liberal–Condervative swing riding. The Conservatives took the seat in 2011 by a margin of less than 6% (under 2000 votes). The Liberals won in 2008 by a wide margin, and in 2006 by only 2.5%. The incumbent, MP Bernard Valcourt, is the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development. He became infamous this year for his icy demeanour when a call for an inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women was made during the release of the Truth and Reconciliation Report. The whole audience gave a standing ovation and Valcourt stayed still in his chair.
