❶Aylmer voters chose to separate from Gatineau but not enough ballots were cast, meaning Aylmer remained a sector of the larger city. Similar voting patterns appeared in the sectors of Buckingham and Masson-Angers , the other two "outlying" regions of Gatineau.

If this were to happen, Aylmer could theoretically be served by light rail as well, but at present this appears highly unlikely. In terms of population, Aylmer makes up about one third of the riding of Hull—Aylmer , which has elected a Liberal member of parliament in every federal election since its conception in — its predecessors, the ridings of Hull and Wright, in place from to , also only ever elected Liberals.

In the Gatineau municipal election, Aylmer voters showed particularly strong support for current mayor Marc Bureau , over incumbent and former mayor of "old" Hull Yves Ducharme.

Similar voting patterns appeared in the sectors of Buckingham and Masson-Angers , the other two "outlying" regions of Gatineau. This could be due to a perception among residents that the Ducharme administration was more focused on the urban core of the new city, as opposed to the periphery, as well as the rapid development of green-spaces into residential subdivisions. However, six months after the November election, residents are showing the highest level of dissatisfaction with the Bureau administration out of all the sectors, citing Aylmer's being left out of municipal processes, poor quality of municipal services, and little to no action to halt suburban sprawl.

Masson-Angers and Buckingham residents are presently showing the most support for the new government. Recently, the City of Gatineau administration had plans to reuse a former landfill site on Cook Road in the north end of the sector to build a new composting plant.

A deal was planned with a non-profit organisation called La Ressourcerie to operate the site. However, local residents are strongly opposed with health and environmental concerns especially due to the past of the landfill site.

A municipal election will occur on November 5, where at least 2 of the 3 sitting councillors will be replaced. Residents of Aylmer were particularly against the amalgamation, citing fears of reduced municipal services, more suburban development, and a loss of cultural identity, as well as geographic differences Hull and Gatineau arguably constitute a region of conurbation , whereas Aylmer was at the time separated by an expanse of sparsely inhabited green space.

A movement was started to halt the "forced fusion" of five cities surrounding Gatineau. The movement had particularly strong support in Aylmer. When the Quebec Liberal Party won the provincial election , the newly amalgamated former cities were given the opportunity to demerge. A referendum was held to decide the fate of the City of Gatineau which required a double vote: Aylmer voters chose to separate from Gatineau but not enough ballots were cast, meaning Aylmer remained a sector of the larger city.

The voting outcome itself was done in such a way that even if Aylmer succeeded in de-amalgamating from Gatineau, they would only do so in name.

The de-amalgamation claimed that once Aylmer was its own area once again, it would have to pay for all its own changes, while Gatineau would still be in control of the administration. Prior to the merger, Aylmer's residents and municipal laws had strongly opposed extensive construction programs. Following the amalgamation, many of the sector's prized green spaces were cut down for residential construction.

Ex-Aylmer neighbourhoods like Wychwood and Village Lucerne have seen their undeveloped spaces sold to contractors. As a result of this unchecked development, there is a strong resentment of the current municipal administration among Aylmer Sector citizens.
