Parties demand answers
The Liberals and the CAQ are demanding Gerald Tremblay give a public explanation for the allegations surrounding his party's financing.
"If he doesn't give answers, I don't understand how he can stay as mayor of Montreal," says CAQ leader François Legault.
He says the Municipal Affairs Minister could either demand answers in a private meeting, or the National Assembly could call on Trembly to testify in front of a committee.
The Liberal interim leader also says the mayor must address the allegations publicly. "And if he doesn't do it, the situation would be unbearable," says Jean-Marc Fournier.
In the meantime, the Minister of Municipal Affairs says the evidence bearing down on Tremblay is building. Sylvain Gaudreault continues to "invite Trembley to reflect," but is giving no further comment.
