Montreal officials can now take a bit of a breather. With London Mayor Joe Fontana now facing criminal charges, the spotlight shifts to SW Ontario and off Montreal for the time being.
Montreal Mayor Gerald Tremblay resigned following testimony at the inquiry into corruption in Quebec’s construction industry that his inner staff were on the take.
Now we learn about Fontana and the possible personal use of public funds again. More information will be forthcoming after a news conference Thursday at 1 p.m.
Is it power that leads to a sense of entitlement in these cases, which occur throughout history and will continue to happen?
It’s distressing to say the least.
Should Fontana step down?
