Mayors should "seriously consider" stepping down: Legault
François Legault says neither the mayor of Montreal, nor the mayor of Laval, have the moral authority to keep their jobs.
The leader of the CAQ says both Gerald Tremblay and Gilles Vaillencourt should seriously consider leaving office.
"Do they have the moral authority? Do they have the credibility to be mayor?" Legault says.
"I think they don't have much authority right now."
Though he stops just short of calling for their resignations, he says the issue goes beyond whether the mayors had direct knowledge of corruption.
"Beyond asking who knew, there's a fundamental management problem," he says.
Legault says the idea of putting Laval and Montreal under trusteeship should not be ruled out entirely, though he says that would not fix the corruption problem.
