Montreal mayor has Quebec’s support after raids: minister


MONTREAL – The Quebec government says Montreal’s mayor has its full support after city hall was raided by the province’s anti- corruption police squad.

The cabinet minister responsibl­e for Montreal told reporters Wednesday that everyone involved should be presumed innocent, since charges have not been laid.

Jean- Francois Lisee says justice must be allowed to run its course.

The anti- corruption unit carried out numerous raids Tuesday at Montreal’s city hall and several other searches in different borough offices. A news report said the new mayor, Michael Applebaum, and the man he recently replaced, Gerald Tremblay, were both among 25 people questioned by police.
