Candidate to Vaillancourt: thanks but no thanks
One of the mayoralty candidates in Laval was quick to react when former mayor Gilles Vaillancourt offered some help with this fall's election campaign.
There are reports that Claire Le Bel was so horrified by the offer from her former party leader that she took a recording of their conversation to anti-corruption investigators.
Le Bel now heads up Option Laval.
Vaillancourt resigned under a cloud earlier this year and is facing fraud charges in connection with city contracting.
