Montreal: a city councillor is continuing his former party

Montréal: une conseillère municipale poursuit son ancien parti

The president of the municipal council of Montreal, Cathy Wong, continues his former party, All Montreal, that it would be a little over$ 5000 since the last elections.

“The defendant refuses and/or fails to communicate with the plaintiff in order to find solutions”, we read in the petition filed recently at the palais de justice of Montreal, that The Newspaper was able to review.

In the court document, the councillor Cathy Wong claims to have lent the sum of$ 5000 to All Montreal in September 2017.

The party then bore the name of Team Coderre, referring to the outgoing mayor Denis Coderre, and Ms. Wong was a campaign within its ranks.

The thirty-year-old was elected two months later in the Peter McGill district, located in the city centre of the metropolis, and was quickly named president of the municipal council by the new mayor Valerie Plant.

According to the lawsuit, the party Set Montreal would have paid a payment of the interest on the loan in December 2018, but nothing more since.

Cathy Wong has left All Montreal last fall to join the ranks of the ruling party, projet Montréal.

Still not having received his full refund, in spite of the attempts of amicable settlement, the municipal councillor has sent a notice to his former party last month, one can read in the query.

To this day, the amount due to Ms. Wong would be 5409,05$.

If no agreement is reached between the parties, the civil chamber of the Court of Québec will be brought to the court soon.
