Sources: "Quebec election results stay true to polls," Montreal Gazette, 3 November 1998, A8; Le Gardien, September–October 2001, p. 28. The former source indicates that Ryan was returned by acclamation, though it does not provide council results. The latter source lists all Montreal North councillors at the time of the city's amalgamation into the new megacity of Montreal in 2001; all listed councillors except Brabant were members of the previous Montreal North council (1994–98), and it may be reasonably assumed that they were re-elected in 1998. The sources listed do not clarify if Brabant was elected in 1998 or in a subsequent by-election, nor do they specify if he was a member of Renouveau municipal.

He had been a member of the Montreal Citizens' Movement in the early 1990s and briefly joined Vision Montreal in 1994. In the 1998 election, he said that he was running to protest the city's sale of land at the Hippodrome de Montreal to the province. Handfield later took part in a campaign to shut down the Miron garbage landfill.

A vocal supporter of Quebec sovereignty, she was appointed in October 1995 to a provincial committee on possible sovereignty negotiations with the Canadian government.

  11. ^ Baribeau was a first-time candidate. He later sought the Bloc Québécois nomination for a 2009 federal by-election in Hochelaga, describing himself as a committed Quebec sovereigntist and social democrat. He did not receive support from the party establishment and was defeated by Daniel Paillé. He has also served as treasurer of SPQ Libre.

  12. ^ Jutras directed the City of Montreal's Department of Recreation and Community Development (renamed in 1993 as the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community-Development Services) for about twenty years, led Montreal's successful bid to host the 1997 Quebec Summer Games, and was committee treasurer for Montreal's bid to host the 2006 Gay Games. He was appointed to the Montreal-Centre regional health board in 2002. The 1998 election was his only bid for public office.

  13. ^ There was a Jacques Gendron who ran as a candidate of the Canadian Alliance in the 2000 Canadian federal election and a different Jacques Gendron who ran for mayor of Longueuil in 1982 and in a 1987 by-election. Media reports do not indicate if either was the same person as the 1998 New Montreal candidate.
