Is it because he's an Anglo?

Overthrowing the corrupt puppet government is the first step towards independence for Quebec!

FTFA: Quebec's anti-corruption unit on Monday arrested Montreal's interim mayor, a man who vowed to clean up the corruption scandals plaguing the city, on fraud charges.

Ah, so it's ironique because he had vowed to fight corruption as his platform?

Merde! Not the Toronto Mayor?

No, then the headline would be "large mayor of a Canadian city....."
 
2013-06-17 02:48:03 PM  
Um... so what makes Montreal "Fark:" worthy... more so than other large Canadian cities?
 
2013-06-17 02:49:23 PM  
Seriously I am starting to think we need to erect a wall at the Manitoba Ontario border to keep the wackos and corrupt out of Western Canada.

Too bad this does not work south of the border.

Oh by the way he was the interim mayor. 
The first one quit after being implicated in a corruption inquiry.
Today's arrest actually has accusations with it.

Basically the answer to all this is: get noobs you'll be sure they won't have been corrupted.

Quebec has a very rich, long-standing tradition of political corruption. Seriously, Jersey corruption is nothing but 3-card monte in comparison.

See what happens when you don't respond swiftly to the 911 calls for the Pacioretty homicide?
 
2013-06-17 02:55:57 PM  
The province is in the middle of a high-profile public inquiry that has uncovered links between the construction industry and organized crime.

I see Canada is still 40 years behind the USA.

It's not Tronna. Hence, the surprise.

It's a bad year to be a Mayor in Canada. I think I'll tweet my mayor.
 
2013-06-17 02:56:53 PM  
That's right, folks, my fair city is now looking for an interim interim mayor to replace its interim mayor (due to corruption charges) who was replacing the former mayor (due to corruption charges).

/it's gotta be getting somewhat difficult to find people who want the job

Jersey isn't Chicago, so quit acting like you're something special.

Did he speak English or something?

They don't like that there.

If a casual observer were picking a major Canadian mayor to be arrested, it would be Toronto's crackaholic.
 
2013-06-17 03:02:17 PM  
I thought it was customary for Canadian mayors to have the people with evidence killed.
 
2013-06-17 03:02:34 PM  
The local government in Quebec is corrupt you say?

Well I for one am shocked. Shocked I tells ya!

I think Hurricane Hazel should lead a workshop in teaching mayors how not to be complete farking boneheads.

2013-06-17 03:05:29 PM  
Also, now that media attention has shifted, Rob Ford must be heavy-breathing a sigh of relief.

FriarReb98: Is it because he's an Anglo?


I don't think so. His name is Applebaum.

RumsfeldsReplacement: Did he speak English or something?

They don't like that there.


While both Francophones and Anglophones have been targeted by the anti-coruption squad (it's about the money, not the language), I'm sure the fact that he's an English-speaker will make the pure laine, à-mort-les-têtes-carrées retards in this fair province I call home cream their shorts.

Right, because Montreal has no history of corruption.

Could we just set it up along the Quebec/Ontario border, and contain the GTA? Would that work?

My Canadian husband said it was more of a mix between Florida and Texas.
I trust him on his call... he knows what he's talking aboot.  :P

So... can someone explain this to me?  Why is the mayor of Montreal being corrupt so fark-worthy?  Politicians are corrupt every where and all the time.

As my Anglo-Quebecois co-worker said "Quebec desperately needs to revamp its laws in order to encourage more transparency within the province".
