A third Laval candidate says Vaillancourt called him
Yet another Laval candidate says he got a call from disgraced former Laval mayor Gilles Vaillancourt.
Denis Robillard, independent candidate running for councillor of Saint-Rose, says he had a five minute conversation with Vaillancourt when he called him last August.
“He told me an independent candidate would never win in Laval and that I should think about joining another party, and that Jean-Claude Gobé's Action Laval party was the best option.”
“What the hell is that?! I don’t understand what kind of game he’s playing, or some people play,” Jean-Claude Gobé told CJAD. “I have no contact with Mr. Vaillancourt and I don’t want to have any contact with him, that’s it.”
Gobé added that he's upset Vaillancourt is talking up so much room in the municipal campaign.
Robillard is the third candidate to speak out about this. Claire Le bel, running for mayor with Option Laval, has asked for police protection after meeting with Vaillancourt, recording their conversation and handing it over to the SQ.
Marc Demers, mayoralty candidate with Mouvement Lavallois, said someone threatened to break his legs in that conversation between Le bel and Vaillancourt.
