Hadrien Parizeau chucked out of party

Hadrien Parizeau, welcomed as a candidate by Denis Coderre’s party last summer and elected councillor for Saint-Sulpice in Ahuntsic, has been chucked out by its successor party Ensemble Montréal. Lionel Perez denies that the dismissal has anything to do with Parizeau participating in the city’s executive committee, but Radio-Canada quotes Valérie Plante saying she thinks it does. Parizeau says he’ll sit as an independent.
