Nadia has written a post wondering who should be the next mayor of Montreal. Her conclusion – and mine as well – we could do a LOT worse than André Boisclair in that job. Boisclair is dynamic, (more or less) bilingual, young, knows provincial politics well (an essential point for the next mayor), and popular. Popular? Well it wasn’t Montreal that voted massively against him for Premier – that was the rest of Quebec. It’s time to turn to a new generation of politician. Tremblay has seemed bored and devoid of vision for years – Montreal needs someone who actually wants to do the job, and will represent Montreal as it really is. The election is coming in 2009 – there’s more than enough time left for him to turn his attention to municipal politics.
