    The new mayor of Terrebonne, Marc-André Plante, says he is satisfied following the arrest this morning by UPAC of 5 members of the former directors, including Jean-Marc Robitaille, a former mayor.

    “This event confirms what we believed and what we said for a long time. Finally, we will know the whole truth about the allegations that have been circulating for a few years and the City will be able to move on to something else,” said Marc-André Plante, who was elected on 5 November after a campaign focused on fighting corruption.

    The mayor of Terrebonne has confirmed that his administration had collaborated in the investigation of the UPAC and will continue to do so. “This is the mandate that the citizens of Terrebonne have confided in me. My first engagement was the fight against collusion and corruption, and upon my arrival I have worked to develop a culture of ethics within the administration.”

    Marc-André Plante was not able to say precisely what are the amounts that could be recovered following these arrests. “For the moment we are talking about approximately$ 200,000 could be recovered, but expect to see the evidence that will be filed by the Crown.”
