Ensemble Montréal presents its teams in the boroughs of Montréal-Nord and Saint-Laurent

MONTREAL, June 2nd, 2021 – The leader of Ensemble Montréal, Mr. Denis Coderre, unveiled this morning the teams that will run under the party’s banner in the boroughs of Montréal-Nord and Saint-Laurent during the municipal elections.

At a press conference in Old Montreal, he announced that Ms. Christine Black will again run for mayor of Montreal North. Ms. Chantal Rossi and Mr. Abdelhaq Sari will also run again as city councillors as will Mr. Jean Marc Poirier for the position of borough councillor.

Mr. Philippe Thermidor, a young graduate committed to diversity and involved with youth and the underprivileged, joins the team and will run for borough councillor of the Ovide-Clermont district.

“The Ensemble Montréal team has done a tremendous amount of work in Montréal-Nord to bring the concept of living together to the forefront. The challenges remain great and the borough is confronted with new issues, but we present candidates who know how to listen to a community in solidarity, sensitive to difference, strong in its diversity, but which must too often rely on its resources,” said the leader of Ensemble Montréal, Denis Coderre.

In Saint-Laurent, the Ensemble Montréal team is proud to be able to count on Mr. Alan DeSousa, who will run for mayor of the borough for a sixth term. He will be supported by Mr. Aref Salem and Mr. Francesco Miele, who will run again as city councillors, and by Mr. Jacques Cohen, who intends to continue serving the citizens of the Côte-de-Liesse district as borough councillor.

Residents of the Norman-McLaren district will be able to meet Ms. Annie Gagnier, who has over 20 years of experience in marketing, real estate development and finance in the fields of architecture, urban planning and banking. Ms. Gagnier wishes to take over from Ms. Michèle D. Biron as Borough Councillor.

“The borough of Saint-Laurent is proof that it is possible to combine economic development and the environment. The area has received numerous awards and has become a reference in this regard. Residents can count on candidates who have a deep knowledge of the borough and who are capable of overcoming all challenges by pushing innovation further,” added the leader of Ensemble Montréal.

Continuing to develop services in Montreal North

Director of the Centre des Jeunes l’Escale de Montréal-Nord for more than 10 years, Christine Black has been in solution mode since she became mayor of Montréal-Nord in 2016, to improve the borough’s image and strengthen ties between citizens. She now wishes to put her leadership forward to put the borough in the spotlight for its services, recreation, transportation and green spaces.

“I am proud of the progress that has been made, but there is still work to be done to ensure that the services offered in Montréal-Nord are equitable with those offered elsewhere in Montréal. Residents can count on our team to provide them with enviable living environments that respect the diversity and accessibility of the borough,” said Christine Black, the outgoing mayor of the borough of Montreal North and candidate for Ensemble Montréal.

Innovation at the heart of Saint-Laurent

The borough of Saint-Laurent holds no secrets for Alan DeSousa, who has worked as mayor since 2001. With the support of the Ensemble Montréal team, he has helped the district become a leader in environmental and sustainable development. With several construction projects expected around the five stations of the Réseau express métropolitain in Saint-Laurent, Alan DeSousa is once again soliciting the trust of citizens to ensure that a collaborative, coherent and respectful vision of their needs is maintained

“For me, the work is just beginning. I still have a lot of ideas in mind so that the borough continues to stand out for its innovation. I intend to continue working so that Saint-Laurent becomes the place of choice for young people and families while preserving the magnificent diversity that distinguishes the borough”, underlined Alan DeSousa, the outgoing mayor of the borough of Saint-Laurent and candidate for Ensemble Montréal.

Ensemble Montréal is pleased to be able to count on two teams that stand out for their ability to make their respective boroughs shine by uniting citizens around community and environmental projects.

“Today we present two teams well anchored in their neighbourhoods, who are familiar and sensitive to the obstacles that residents have had to overcome over the past few years. The arrival of Annie Gagnier in Saint-Laurent and Philippe Thermidor will bring new life to the work that has been done to ensure that these two boroughs are fully considered at the city level,” concluded Mr. Coderre.
