Some facts and figures about the federal riding of Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe

MONCTON, N.B. — Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe

Ginette Petitpas Taylor won the riding for the Liberals in 2015 with almost 58 per cent of the votes. She has held the high-profile position of health minister in the Trudeau cabinet. This riding is seen as a fairly safe Liberal riding, having only voted Conservative twice since 1979. If this year's expected Conservative rebound in New Brunswick stretches as far as Moncton, it will be a bad sign for the Liberals.
