Given that the City Côte Saint-Luc is in the COVID-19 red zone and in compliance with health and safety directives, the City will not hold a by-election to fill the office of Councillor for District 8, following the passing of Councillor Ruth Kovac. Côte Saint-Luc is in a similar situation as other municipalities in Quebec that have not had to fill a vacancy since Council has a quorum and has no vacancy in the office of Mayor.

Council is however concerned and aware that the residents of District 8 have the right and expect to be adequately represented. Therefore, Mayor Mitchell Brownstein undertakes to be the direct link with the residents of District 8 in order to maintain the usual follow-ups with these residents. Mayor Brownstein can be reached at [email protected] or 514-485-6936.

For more information related to the cancellation of the by-election, contact the Côte Saint-Luc elections office at 514-485-6800 ext. 1704 or [email protected].
