Another piece on CDN-NDG

La Presse’s Mario Girard has a piece on the internal rumbling in CDN-NDG borough management but doesn’t succeed in casting any more light on the mess there. We know the mayor, Sue Montgomery, has had trouble working with the fonctionnaires, but whether the situation is that she wanted reasonable changes and the sitting fonctionnaires thought they knew better, or whether she made outrageous demands which the fonctionnaires refused to meet, is anyone’s guess. Probably the situation could be described both ways depending whose side you take.

Girard’s conclusion, that this situation is not good for the borough, is probably true. It really is time to break that borough into two pieces and start over.
