A Quebec court on Thursday confirmed Caroline Bourgeois’ minor achievements as Laurent Desbois mayor of Outreach and mayor of Riviere-des-Prairies-Point-Aux-Trembles.
Mr. Desbois is a candidate under the banner of the ensemble Montreal, the political structure of Denis Coderre. He has been defeating Borough Mayor Philippe Tomlinson since 2017 with Project Montreal.
In the 2018 by-election, Caroline Bourgeois, an ally of Valerie Plante, became mayor of the Riviere-des-Prairies-Point-Aux-Tremble. She is trying to retain her seat over Lynn Lapierre from Ensemble Montreal.
The results, published on election night, gave Mr. Desboys a lead of just 23 votes, and Mr.Me Bourgeois. Each party has called for a recount of ballot boxes ending Thursday.
“Congratulations Laurent, it’s a great pleasure to officially be counting on you in our large family,” ensemble Montreal said on social networks. “The borough will be in good hands and will no doubt regain its pride in the end. ”
New count results are still pending in the Tétreaultville district.
Over the past two days, the success of the Project Montreal candidates has been confirmed in two other districts, as well as in the town halls of C కోట్te d’Ivoire – Notre-Dame-de-Grace.
