Montreal's mayor resigned November 5th in the midst of a corruption scandal, becoming the highest-profile political casualty of the controversies that rocked Quebec. Gerald Tremblay said he had done nothing wrong but was stepping aside for the greater good of the city. A witness at Quebec's corruption inquiry said Tremblay was not only aware of illegal financing within his political party but was indifferent to it. Tremblay denied that while making his resignation announcement. (Less than a week later, Gilles Vaillancourt (VY'-ahn-koor), the mayor of Laval, Quebec's third-largest city, resigned following allegations made before Quebec's corruption inquiry.)
