Montreal's main mayoralty candidates face off
Montreal's four main Mayoral candidates took part in a televised French language debate at McGill University tonight.
The four fielded questions from the audience on a range of topics including the economy, public transit, the role of English in the city and the charter of values.
In her debate debut, Melanie Joly appeared confident, promising greater transparency at city hall.
Marcel Cote said he would clean up corruption to attract investors to Montreal and said there was too much bureaucracy in the city.
Denis Coderre says he is opposed to the PQ's charter of values and said he would fight it in the courts if need be. He also promised to reduce out-sourcing while Richard Bergeron defended his tramway project, saying Montreal is far from poor and can afford it.
