Montreal’s interim mayor, Laurent Blanchard, announced today that he would be running under Marcel Côté’s Coalition Montreal banner for a seat on city council.
Blanchard was sworn in as interim mayor of Montreal in June after a tumultuous year saw two mayors resign amid allegations of corruption.
Gérald Tremblay resigned last November after serving as mayor of Montreal for 10 years.
Tremblay’s replacement, Michael Applebaum, resigned in June.
Blanchard is running in the Nov. 3 election for a council seat in the borough of Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.
