Montreal Mayors, particularly on the West Island where they are pushing so hard to develop all the land so developers can make their money, should take heed. Corruption doesn’t pay. Already one Mayor is off to jail and I’m sure there will be others, either disgraced or better still jailed.
Developers should be very careful as well with their bribe money. UPAC is watching. Elections are coming in November. Time to take out the garbage.
