Murray Gets Under Mayor Tremblay’s Skin Again (Part 6)

At the June city council meeting (video below) you will see Mayor Gerald Tremblay literally “wipe the floor” with Murray. Is Tremblay insinuating that Murray is a racist by Murray’s tactic of always comparing the Anglos to the Francos?

Did Murray try and have La Presse emulate The Gazette Christmas Fund, and obviously benefit more less fortunate Quebecois, because Murray is a racist? Did Murray put his neck on the line, and possibly face a lawsuit when he defamed and libelled La Presse publisher Roger D. Landry, CC, OQ. in order to have him do good for all humanity?

McGill raises over seven times what the U de M raises. The Ste Justine’s Children’s Hospital would have raised $113 million last year, if its constituency were as charitable as the constituency of the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Instead, only $20.8 million was raised. Quebec has some obvious major sociological problems and unfortunately the Quebecois are in denial regarding the one that Murray (and Murray alone) is attempting to solve.

At the previous council meeting, Murray told Mayor Tremblay that nobody should be ashamed of the statistics, but anyone in a position to improve the situation should be ashamed of themselves, if they did nothing, like Mayor Tremblay. (See the previous post for the video.)

Note how Tremblay tries to shift the onus onto Murray to change his behaviour. Whose administration is presently under investigation by the Ministry of Public Security? Which society in Canada has the lowest rates by far for charitable giving, voluntarism, blood contributions and entrepreneurs? Which society enjoys the highest rate of pet abandonment and high school dropouts?

Mayor Tremblay is in an excellent position to improve the situation re charitable giving/voluntarism, but on the day of the last election, Mayor Tremblay’s party used Velo Quebec headquarters and employees to get re-elected. The upper echelon of Velo QC contributed to Mayor Tremblay’s election campaign. Tremblay nominated the past-President/Founder of Velo Quebec as chairman of the STM while Montreal’s funding of Velo Quebec increased by 60%, to $972,000 in 2010, and fundraising events had to pay Montreal $170,000 to stage athletic fundraising events at Parc Jean Drapeau alone!

Perhaps someone should explain the concept of a conflict of interest to the mayor, but with all of the crap surrounding the illegality of BIXI, and the ever continuing scandals at Hotel de Ville, would it make any difference at all to him?

On June 21st The Gazette published Murray’s following letter:

Re: Henri Aubin’s Tremblay won’t rule out another term (Gazette June 18); Mr. Aubin mentions that the other possible contenders are Louise Harel, Richard Bergeron, Gilbert Rozon and Denis Coderre.
Mme Harel is a soverignist so she has a snowball’s chance in hell.
Richard Bergeron speculated in his book the Bush administration carried out the 9/11 attacks as an “act of state banditry of titanic proportions” so we all know what he smokes.
Gilbert Rozon will not do very well with the woman voters, as in 2000 he plead guilty to sexual assault. While Denis Coderre has yet to march in solidarity with the citizens of Syria who are being butchered by their leader, he did find the time to march three years ago under the flag of Hezbollah, an outlawed terrorist group.
As far as Mayor Tremblay is concerned; he has experience. If one forgets about the water meters, bids without tender, spying on everyone, being investigated by the Ministry of Security, giving $1 million/yr to Velo QC while charging fundraising events $170,000 at Parc Jean Drapeau alone, etc., etc. He has appeal. Fortunately for him, the overwhelming majority of Montreal’s citizens seem to have Attention Deficit Disorder and fail to learn.

At the end of my questions on the video below, Mary Deros asks that I not be allowed to ask questions in the future! 🙂

Politicians welcome democracy when it gets them elected. What happens after that can be amusing and it is my job to make things amusing at hotel de ville!

Here is an excellent rendition of Mayor Tremblay by The Gazette’s cartoonist, Aislin:

For those who did not hear, the provincial government is investigating Montreal City Hall. Is it possible that Mayor Tremblay, etc. are dishonest? How could anyone even think that?

What Marvin Rotrand (Tremblay’s pit bull) forgot to mention when he replied for Mayor Tremblay in the video, is that while he supported my goal, when I found out about “a potential conflict of interest” that will be investigated by the Ministry of Security, and I called a year ago to discuss with Marvin, I never heard from Marvin. Could it be because Marvin is the vice-Chair of the STM and the Chairman is the Founder/past-President of Velo QC, Michel Labrecque?

As far as Marvin’s response all that he has done is excuse Mayor Tremblay for not fulfilling what he has sworn to do. He did not swear an oath to do as Velo QC chooses. He swore an oath to do what is in fully in the best interest of the public, and no one else.

Please feel free to forward this blog post as a training video to your friends, etc., on how to deal with politicians who forget that they are supposed to serve US and not their friends. Feel free to send to  I am sure that you can imagine that he likes to see me asking questions of him. 🙂

As far as my use of the word “crap” is concerned; from the dictionary: 3. Foolish, deceitful, or boastful language.

Levine VS Tremblay Round 2


Westmount residents please see this link.

On Sunday, June 5, tens, if not hundreds of thousands of residents of CSL, Westmount, Hampstead, TMR, CDN, NDG, etc will be greatly inconvenienced for absolutely no good reason whatsoever

Murray confronts Mayor Tremblay at City Hall Feb 21st 2011 about increasing charitable giving in Montreal.

Mayor Tremblay should have checked the stats first before using Centraide as an example of how charitable Montrealers are.

The per capita contribution of a person in Toronto was twice that of a Montrealer and in Ottawa it was three times that of Montreal.

Nine years ago Mayor Tremblay told me on CJAD, with 30,000 listening that he was going to speak to the President of Velo QC about cooperating with charity. What can be said about a man that makes a pledge to do something in the best interest of humanity and then does nothing?

A year ago when 250,000 lay dead in Haiti, I asked Tremblay to set up the Mayor of Montreal Charity Challenge and invite the 80,000 participants of Montreal’s major running and cycling events to raise $$ for Haiti and other worthy causes.

He told me that he would phone me the following day.

Q: How do you tell when a politician is lying?

A: “His lips are moving.”

Please feel free to write to Mayor Tremblay at and tell him how good he looks next to someone fighting to increase charitable giving in the worst place by far for it in Canada.
