Louis Plamondon

La politique sur le terrain

Louis Plamondon

Louis Plamondon is the Dean of the House of Commons. This 30-year veteran of the Canadian parliament, who holds the record for longest-serving Francophone federal MP since World War Two, represents the constituents of Bas-Richelieu-Nicolet-Bécancour. First elected to the House as a Progressive Conservative, Louis Plamondon survived several challenges he faced as a member of the Bloc Québécois, a party he co-founded in 1991. He is currently one of only two MPS left in Ottawa representing this party in disarray. CPAC followed him around his Quebec riding.
