Mr. Coderrey was appointed head of the metropolis in 2013, after spending many years in the House of Commons in Ottawa, where he was particularly the Minister of Immigration.
Joster Luke Laoi hopes that we will not forget the beginning of his tenure as mayor.
“It was after the years of Gerald Tremble and Frank Zampino, and soon after, Mr. Coderrey cleaned up financially,” he said.
Luke Laoi believes that Denis Coderre also gave the city some pride.
“He came and brought something else. To say “I am a proud Montrealist” was encouraging, ”he believes.
For Elsie Lefebvre, the fall was the only “brutal” one for a politician known for “three good years.”
“There is a consensus, projects are moving forward, it’s 375th of Montreal, there’s a lot of money to invest in infrastructure … consolidation of public finance, I think we can give it,” she said.
This was done without counting the collective agreements he signed with municipal employees, she stressed.
“It’s nothing in Montreal,” she said. He still did great things. ”
