Montreal’s Election of Compromise: The BT Interviews

eliasmakos | posted Friday, Nov 1st, 2013

With just a couple of days until Montrealers go to the polls, it’s amazing how many people I speak to who still are undecided about their vote for Mayor on Sunday. With this being most important municipal election in decades, it’s curious that many of us haven’t been able to lock down our vote. Why hasn’t a candidate been able to make his or her case in the last month?

I think we’re all looking for the perfect candidate.

But it’s become clear this week, watching the terrific interviews with our Joanne Vrakas, that the perfect candidate does not exist. The decision Montrealers face this year is one of compromise. The decision we really face is figuring out which compromise is acceptable to us. A fresh face without baggage vs. Inexperience. Political savvy vs. connections with our troubled past. Leadership & management skills vs. coalition partners we may not be comfortable with. A strong record of transparency and trust vs. some policies that we may not like.

If you’re like many people and haven’t made up your mind yet, take the time to watch our interviews with the candidates. It just may make up your mind for Sunday.

Catherine Verdon-Diamond’s Splash & Dash

Your very own CVD will be taking part in the Heroes & Celebrities 12th annual Sarah’s Fund Splash & Dash event on Saturday November 2nd.

The relay race involves laps around the track, and laps in the pool. Yes I will be running (or walking at times), and I will swim as fast as I can… All in support of these courageous children!

All funds raised go to honour and celebrate the families who have courageously battled pediatric cancer and made their journey through the hallways of Sarah’s Floor at The Montreal Children’s Hospital.

So if you can, please support this great cause and of course my team! Any amount will help: https://splashanddash.childrenfoundation.com/fundraiser/catherine-verdon-diamond/

Many thanks,

Catherine
