The Liberal Party of Canada have held Mount-Royal riding for 76 years. Has their winning streak finally run out? The Conservative Party thinks so. With growing popularity of Stephen Harper among ethnic communities, and in particular that of the Jewish community as he espouses huge support for Israel, the ground work may be nearer than many think for the Tories to retake Mount Royal.
Mount Royal is the federal riding encompassing Cote Saint-Luc, Hamsptead, parts of Snowdon and Cote-des-Neiges as well as TMR.
With the McGill law professor and world-renowned human rights advocate Irwin Cotler holding the MP’s seat for the Libs, the Tories need a star candidate if they hold out any hope to shift the tide. Stay tuned. A federal election call may be days away.
