The Mayor of Montreal, Gerald Tremblay, is currently giving a speech where he hopefully will resign. He started by saying that his dad told/ him:
"My father told me to never get into politics because it was dirty, and I would be destroyed."
And my reaction is: I pity the fool who blames the game. At no point did this Mayor ever seem at all sincere about fighting corruption. The scandal led to his door. He made his bucks so no sympathy for him now. He played the game, he won, and now he has lost. Suck it up, take some personal responsibility and then get off the stage. Oh, and maybe donate some cash to something worthy.
Tremblay leaves as he governed--oblivious to the end.
