Municipal election bulletins of the day
As August slips through our fingers I’m noticing more municipal election items cropping up, a trend that’s inevitably going to keep growing till November. I’ll try to summarize in one daily entry unless something huge comes up.
First Brother Marcel Tremblay, who had left the job of city snow czar and indicated he was leaving politics, is planning a comeback by running for borough mayor of Villeray/St-Michel/Park Ex this fall. The job’s currently held by Vision’s Anie Samson; Marcel currently represents CDN/NDG.
Louise Harel has picked up another PQ confrère, Rémy Trudel, who will run in Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie. I am wondering, should Vision win, how much municipal money and time will be drafted in support of nationalist-tinged efforts and language policing.
