Sources of municipal results

Le Devoir has a good page showing results from Montreal boroughs as well as other towns in Quebec. Some interesting contests are still too close to be sure but it looks like Coderre will not be the only confident municipal politician turfed out of his job Sunday night.

Still watching the Ahuntsic-Cartierville mayoral contest, where Projet’s Émilie Thuillier is a smidge ahead of Harout Chitilian, and CDN-NDG, where Projet’s Sue Montgomery is holding an equally thin advantage over Russell Copeman. (Update: both Projet candidates won.)

Ferrandez, Croteau and Dorais handily retook the Plateau, Rosemont and Sud-Ouest for Projet.

Réal Ménard has been defeated in MHM by Projet’s Pierre Lessard-Blais, and Projet’s Philippe Tomlinson has taken Outremont from Marie Potvin.

I notice that among borough councillors, Richard Bergeron has been defeated in Ville-Marie and Jeremy Searle won’t be back. Elsie Lefebvre seems to have been edged by Rosannie Filato in Villeray. (Update: That’s final. I don’t imagine Lefebvre will leave politics, having been both an MNA and a councillor, but she’s out of council now.)

Denis Coderre is conceding and saying he’s leaving municipal politics and won’t be sitting in council. His co-listier in Montreal North will have to sit. I’m seeing observations that Coderre is the first mayor in 57 years to lose after just one mandate. Last time it was Sarto Fournier.
