Meet The New Mayor Of Montreal Valerie Plante
Valerie Plante took office this morning as the first female mayor of Montreal. She was welcomed by excited on lookers and was seen taking her time to talk and shake hands to the many montrealers that came out to greet her.
Plante said she was satisfied with her campaign and would be humbled to shatter the glass ceiling of Montreal’s highest elected office.
“We made history together. We did it together,” Plante told an excited crowd at the Corona Theatre in Little Burgundy on Sunday night. “Tonight, we wrote a new page in Montreal’s history. Three hundred and seventy five years after Jeanne Mance co-founded the city, Montreal has its first woman mayor. And I’m excited to write the continuation of this history with all of you.”
