Who will head Union Montreal after Gérald Tremblay?
One option he doesn’t mention: maybe the party should fold. Municipal parties don’t have long lives. Union isn’t an old party – it came into existence in 2001. Jean Drapeau’s Civic Party, which for a time felt like a monolith in the city, lasted from 1960 to 1994.
Depending how the Charbonneau Commission pans out, and if it’s proven that Union Montreal glommed onto percentages of contracts, maybe it should be disbanded.
