If most of the ensemble Montreal candidates decide to remain silent until their leader, the loser Réal Ménard in the Mercier – Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough, decides not to bother pointing out what went wrong during the campaign.
He noted the late disclosure of orders, clients, contracts and salaries of Mr. Coderre, who has worked as a consultant in the private sector in recent years.
Mr. For Maynard, three factors describe the defeat of Denise Coderre.
First, the former mayor of Mercier – Hochelaga-Mysannev referred to unrecognized “moral ambiguities”.
“People understand that Mr Coderre worked in the private sector. People have a right to a livelihood, but when you want to run Montreal, you have to explain where your income comes from. Real Maynard explained.
The latter also motivates many candidates who have spoken for false reasons.
Third, the position of ensemble Montreal has hurt the party in some areas, Maynard said.
“This can be understood as support for institutional bilingualism. We should not ask for amendments to Act 96,” he stressed.
Marvin Rotrand, who has just retired after 39 years of active politics in Montreal, backed Denise Coderre last summer. While he believes Coderre is the best candidate to lead Montreal, he admits that the mistakes of course did not help him.
“Three weeks before the election, I’m sure he’s going to win, but Denis Coderre lost because he allowed Valerie Plante to divert his message.”
For his part, Michelle Bissonet, the mayor of Saint-Leonard for the ensemble Montreal team, believes that Denis Coderre will have revealed his contracts publicly before the final days of the campaign.
Mr. Bissonnet, who has amassed an active political career of 44 years, is also seeking the appointment of Denis Coderre as Leader of the Opposition.
“He made a solid speech on Sunday evening, which came with a passion from the heart. I hope he will continue to be the Leader of the Opposition with his own experience, which will provide better advice,” said Michelle Bissonet.
