Montreal police brotherhood loses confidence in mayor
The Montreal Police Brotherhood says it no longer wants to be held accountable to the Tremblay Administration.
After the allegations at the Charbonneau Commission over the past few weeks, the brotherhood says it is uneasy with the idea of the police force submitting its plans and budgets to Mayor Tremblay.
Brotherhood president Yves Francoeur says there's a problem when the force has to come before a public security committee controlled by Union Montreal, a party whose name has come up numerous times at the commission.
Louise Harel, opposition leader at Montreal City Hall says she agrees with the police brotherhood and wants those public security meetings that are now held behind closed doors, to be held in public.
She says she will present a motion of censure against the mayor at the next city council meeting.
The other opposition party, Projet Montreal, says it will be presenting a non-confidence motion.
