I will not be resigning: Laval mayor
Mayor Vaillancourt spoke very briefly to reporters and didn't take any questions, but one thing he wanted to make clear is that he will not be stepping down.
"This morning we're facing a surge of statements, rumours and demands and to put an immediate stop to what is being circulated in the media, I will not be resigning," he said.
The mayor says all this has come as a total shock, but he will cooperate with police.
He says he and his team have always acted responsibly and in the best interest of citizens.
