Plante puts good face on election result

Mayor Plante is trying to put a good face on the city’s rejection of the CAQ. We had two CAQ MNAs before the election, and we have two CAQ MNAs now. Not much will change in the CAQ’s view of Montreal.

Plante is a practical woman and knows there’s no benefit to the city in flaunting an adverse position to the CAQ, even when her personal and her party philosophy run counter to François Legault’s on most points. So she’s doing her best to make peace.

La Presse’s Philippe Mercure makes a plea to Legault not to forget Montreal, giving him a short list of issues needing attention.
