Mayor Election Poll

Since mayor Gérald Tremblay (2002-2012), the mayor of the City of Montreal is also the mayor of the Ville-Marie borough, as per an agreement made between the Quebec Government and the City of Montreal. 

Mayor Tremblay was convinced that the mayor of the City of Montreal should also be the mayor of the Ville-Marie borough to avoid potential conflicts or disagreements.

The mayor of the City of Montreal heads the City Council and controls the administrative, budgetary and legislative procedures of the Montreal municipal services and organisation as stated by our Charter of Ville de Montréal.
