Mayoralty campaign: state of play

Promises are coming thick and fast in the mayoral campaign:

Both Coderre and Plante have promised more money for culture with Coderre putting the spin on prolonging features from the 375th celebrations.

Plante is talking about converting the Blue Bonnets site into a new neighbourhood for families by ordaining that a majority of the construction should include three bedrooms or more.

Coderre attended this week’s all-night support-for-the-homeless event, for an hour, and talked about supporting them.

Coderre is also promising to do something about the Black Rock, even though Hydro-Quebec bought the land recently with plans that don’t include a memorial to the Irish ship fever victims.
