City councillor (2002-2005)[edit]

She was originally elected in 2001, to represent the Peter-McGill district as a councillor under Gérald Tremblay's Union Montreal party. Tremblay named her to the city's executive committee, where she was responsible for the social development/revenue security and the Business Centre portfolios.[1] Due to a disagreement with the Tremblay administration, she resigned from the executive committee and Union Montréal and spent the rest of her time in council sitting as an independent. For the 2005 municipal elections, she created Équipe Ville-Marie. For the 2009 municipals, this became Parti Montréal Ville-Marie.[1]

2006 federal election[edit]

During the 2006 Canadian federal election, O'Sullivan ran for the Conservative Party of Canada in the riding of Westmount—Ville-Marie. She was defeated by incumbent, Lucienne Robillard, of the Liberal Party of Canada.
