Sylvie Clermont resigned, May 30, from her position as city councillor for Laval’s St. Vincent de Paul district.
Clermont’s letter of resignation was tendered during the ensuing city council meeting, the following Monday, June 3. In the letter, she cited “health” as the reason for her resignation.
Clermont did not respond to The Suburban’s requests for her to make a comment about her departure.
Clermont was named to the city’s executive committee in November 2012, joining other executive committee members Alexandre Duplessis, Benoît Fradet, Basile Angelopoulos and Jocelyne Guertin.
Both Fradet and Angelopoulos—two long-time Laval councillors—announced in April that they will not be running for office in the next Laval election.
Clermont is the daughter of Maurice Clermont, the former Liberal Member of Parliament for Mille Îles who was also a city councillor from 1981-2001 and Laval’s leader of the opposition from 1985-1997.
