In a statement, Campeau said that given the latest context of Quebec’s language dossier as well as the impact Laurin and Bill 101 had on Quebec society, it seems legitimate to rename the riding in his honour.Laurin served as MNA for Bourget from 1970 to 1973, 1976 to 1985 and from 1994 to 1998.Campeau noted that the current name of the riding honours Monsignor Ignace Bourget, bishop of Montreal from 1840 to 1876.
