Title
The Merger Delusion: How Swallowing Its Suburbs Made an Even Bigger Mess of Montreal
Abstract
In 2002, the Quebec government forcibly merged the twenty-seven city's on the island of Montreal into a single municipality - a decision that was partially reversed in 2006 when fifteen former municipalities became independent again. All those municipalities that were predominately Anglophone or had substantial Anglophone populations left the merged mega-city. The author, the Mayor of the City of Westmount, details the battle he led against the merger process.
