The mayor of L'Assomption is facing questions about the future of his job.
Jean-Claude Gingras was arrested Friday night outside a local restaurant on impaired driving charges. He'd been arrested a year ago on similar charges.
But the mayor is claiming he's the victim of police harassment.
An emergency city council meeting will be held tonight to discuss Gingras' future.
The mayor insisted to a reporter after his arrest that he's no Rob Ford.
But like the crack-smoking mayor of Toronto, Gingras is claiming the police case against him is politicized. And city council is wondering what to do with him.
Gingras also thinks a lawsuit over the force's collective bargaining agreement is behind what he believes is police harassment.
The mayor is expected to attend tonight's emergency meeting.
