City hall opposition is leveraging the media

The Gazette’s giving a lot of time and cred to city hall opposition, for example leading with Lionel Perez in this piece on the Ste-Catherine Street renovations and giving him all the “sensible” soundbites. Valérie Plante’s efforts to keep the public informed seem level-headed to me, but the paper lies down and lets Perez use it as a platform for demagoguery here.
