    If the mayor of Lévis seems to take the output of Régis Labeaume at the light, his counterpart in Trois-Rivières, has been stung to the quick by “skidding” of the mayor of Quebec city, who asked the protesters to go ” to Trois-Rivières and Lévis “, during their next few bursts.

    “Instead of condemning the cursed violence, it sends it elsewhere. It does not make sense ! “launches from the outset, at the end of the wire, the mayor of Trois-Rivières, Yves Lévesque, obviously irritated, as he acknowledges to have received calls from citizens who were trying to understand the “specific proposal” from the mayor of Quebec city.

    It is a full point release, in the aftermath of Sunday’s demonstration, Mr. Labeaume has launched this statement before to ensure that he had evidence of ” humor “.

    “It’s a lack of professionalism on his part, according to me, a lack of respect. This is not to the height of a position of mayor, ” he know. Nevertheless, Mr. Lévesque says that his relations with Mr. Labeaume will not be affected. “I have no trouble with anyone, but we send the thugs, this is not really necessary. If it has, you’re going to live with, but we do encourage people to go elsewhere and make the case, that’s for sure, “says the one who proposes to him instead of to him,” send economic projects “.

    Lehouillier takes it lightly

    The reaction was different in Lévis, on Monday, while the mayor Gilles Lehouillier, who said ” know your colleague Régis Labeaume “, for his part, seemed to take the assertion with a grain of salt.

    “Apparently, he said,” under the sign of the joke. If you know the personality of Régis Labeaume you do not respond to this type of comment, ” he said. “Régis Labeaume is like that, it will not change tomorrow morning “, he added.

    Mr. Lehouillier has, however, held to be reassuring, indicating that a situation like the one that occurred in Quebec Sunday “will not happen” on the other side of the river. “Lévis is a city of great tranquillity “, he insisted.
