Geography

The riding includes the entire city of Moncton and most of the town of Riverview and the city of Dieppe.

The neighbouring ridings are Beauséjour and Fundy Royal.

History

The riding of Moncton was created in 1966 when the district of Westmorland was split. The other riding is now called Beausejour. The riding's initial area consisted of the city of Moncton and town of Dieppe, two parishes in Westmorland County (Moncton and Salisbury), and the Parish of Coverdale in Albert County.

As the Moncton area grew in population, the riding shrank. The area of Albert County outside the town of Riverview was removed in 1976, a large area north of Moncton was removed in 1987, and the Petitcodiac and Salisbury areas were removed in 1997, to the point where the riding no longer has any largely rural areas. In 1998, Riverview and Dieppe were added to the riding's name.

Moncton has elected some well-known and controversial Members of Parliament. Former mayor Leonard Jones, who took a tough stance against French language education, won the Progressive Conservative Party nomination for the 1974 election, but party leader Robert Stanfield refused to sign his nomination papers because of Jones' opposition to party policy on Official bilingualism. Jones ran and won as an independent candidate.

Dennis Cochrane, later the leader of the New Brunswick PC Party, represented the city for one term in the 1980s, and Liberal Brian Murphy is the riding's current representative in the House of Commons.
