Let’s all support Charles Lapointe by picking up trash
Mayor Gérald Tremblay wanted to fire the messenger, and keep quiet about this, even though city cleanliness was one of his campaign promises. Charles Lapointe, CEO of Tourism Montreal, pointed out the dirty state of the city at a business lunch earlier in the week. Now his board of directors has given him their full support and the Tourism Montreal head stays on. You can see the text of his speech here. (PDF in French).
Rather than forgetting about this, we should all pitch in and do our bit to keep our streets clean in whatever way we can help.
