Post-election stories (there will be more)

CBC has a challenges-facing-Plante piece to greet the new mayor Monday and Patrick Lagacé analyzes why Plante won. He says he’s never seen such a political upset in Quebec – not the orange wave in 2011? Jean Doré’s defeat of the Civic Party in 1986 was also a turning of the tide, but maybe Lagacé is too young to remember that one.

The Gazette looks at changes in the West Island and how Côte St-Luc voted. Westmount kept the interim mayor who stepped in earlier this year when Peter Trent retired, and CBC reports on the West Island as well.

I’m seeing numbers around 40% for voter participation in Montreal, but the final tally on that is not yet in.

Borough mayoralties: Ten are now Projet, two are local parties (Anjou and Lasalle), six remained with Équipe Coderre. Ville-Marie doesn’t have its own mayor so can be counted as also taken by Projet.

Will Équipe Coderre have to rename itself, now that its chief is bailing from city politics?
