Gérald Tremblay breaks his silence

Gérald Tremblay is breaking his silence but doesn’t have much to say. Yes, he’s right about Montreal not having enough political autonomy, but that isn’t news, and he refuses to discuss the only story that really matters, which is how his administration got so shot through with corruption yet he never noticed.

As Tremblay points out, he’s never personally been accused, neither criminally nor civilly, but that’s a pretty sad claim to have to make if he thinks he did well by the city, which apparently he does.

He’s speaking up because there’s a new book about him, written by a lawyer, which is also a bit odd. I’ll be curious to see what the commentariat will have to say about it.

Great portrait with the umbrella, though.
