From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Municipal politics in Montreal's city council revolve around its elected councillors, the municipal political parties to which they belong, and the mayor.

Montreal is one of the rare examples of a city with municipal political parties in Canada (they also exist in Vancouver). [1] Political parties were legalized in Quebec by the PQ government in power in 1978. However, they existed long before official recognition by the provincial government. [2]
