Geography

The riding extends along the north bank of the Saint Lawrence River between the north suburbs of Montreal and Trois-Rivières, straddling the Quebec regions of Lanaudière and Mauricie.

The district includes the Regional County Municipalities of D'Autray and Maskinongé, and the former cities of Pointe-du-Lac and Trois-Rivières-Ouest in the City of Trois-Rivières.

The neighbouring ridings are Joliette, Repentigny, Verch√®res‚ÄĒLes Patriotes, Bas-Richelieu‚ÄĒNicolet‚ÄĒB√©cancour, Trois-Rivi√®res, and Saint-Maurice‚ÄĒChamplain.

History

The riding was created in 1924 from Berthier and Maskinongé. It consisted of Berthier County and Maskinongé County.

In 1947, it was redefined to consist of the county of Berthier and the town of Berthierville, the county of Maskinongé and the town of Louiseville, and Gouin township in the county of Joliette.

In 1952, it was abolished when it was merged into Berthier‚ÄĒMaskinong√©‚ÄĒdelanaudi√®re riding.

The riding was recreated in 1966 as "Berthier" from the districts of Berthier‚ÄĒMaskinong√©‚ÄĒdelanaudi√®re, Chapleau, Joliette‚ÄĒL'Assomption‚ÄĒMontcalm, St-Maurice‚ÄĒLafl√®che, and Three Rivers.

In 1975, the name of the riding was changed to "Berthier-Maskinong√©". After the 1980 election, the name of the district was changed to Berthier‚ÄĒMaskinong√©‚ÄĒLanaudi√®re.

In the 1984 election, the seat was won by Progressive Conservative Robert de Cotret, who held it until the 1988 election. The riding was abolished in 1987. It was divided between Berthier‚ÄĒMontcalm, Champlain, and Saint-Maurice.

Berthier‚ÄĒMaskinong√© was re-created in 2003. 44.8% of the riding came from Trois-Rivi√®res, 36.0% from Berthier‚ÄĒMontcalm, and 19.2% from Saint-Maurice.

In the 2004 election and the 2006 election, Bloc Québécois MP Guy André was elected in the riding.
