Montreal mayor afraid for his family

Gérald Tremblay says mafia might be out for revenge over construction contracts

by

Gérald Tremblay fears for his life. At least, that’s what the Montreal mayor told Le Devoir in a lengthy article touching on the upcoming municipal election. Locked in a campaign battle largely dominated by political ethics with former péquiste cabinet minister Louise Harel, Tremblay apparently wants to prove his bona fides by saying the mafia wants to harm his family. The awarding of construction contracts to potentially mobbed-up companies has surfaced in the last few weeks. “As mayor of Montreal, I am capable of taking the pressure but I cannot ask my family and my kids to do the same,” he says.
