Demerger stall tactics

08.26.03

The latest from the Pierre Bourque twisted logic file: stall tactics on the demerger issue:

Bourque announced his Vision Montreal party is asking the provincial Liberal government to delay demerger votes until the next Montreal municipal election, scheduled for November 2005, because it would be “anti-democratic” to start the demerger process before the city council can complete its term.

“It would invalidate the 2001 election. … It’s against our tradition to not respect the vote,” said Bourque, the opposition leader at city hall, as he unveiled a brief he will present at National Assembly hearings next month.

More like it would “invalidate” Bourque’s attempt to get back into power before the demerger would go through. Funny how he’s suddenly all up in arms about something being “anti-democratic”, isn’t it?
