Council member bails on Ensemble

RDP-PAT councillor Giovanni Rapanà has left Ensemble to sit as an independent. Rapanà wanted to run for mayor of the borough in the byelection sparked because the sitting mayor, Chantal Rouleau, representing Ensemble, was elected as a CAQ MNA earlier this month. Ensemble told Rapanà no, so he walked away.

La Presse notes that Ensemble also lost Frantz Benjamin to the National Assembly and is left with 18 council seats against Projet’s 33.
