Hochelaga

CPAC’s Marc-André Cossette reports on the Montreal riding of Hochelaga. This urban working class neighbourhood was a Bloc Québécois bastion for many years until Jack Layton and the Orange wave of 2011 came along. The incumbent New Democrat Marjolaine Boutin-Sweet will not be running, and her former political aide Catheryn Roy-Goyette is running instead. The Bloc Québécois candidate is Simon Marchand, a former executive with Option nationale, while former city councillor Soraya Martinez Ferrada is running for the Liberals and filmmaker Robert Morais, for the Greens.
