LaSalle candidate for mayor: Jean-François Labbé


By Tracey Arial

Jean-François Labbé: Équipe Denis Coderre pour Montréal

With a background in business, law and economics, Jean-François Labbé has lots of ideas about how to develop LaSalle’s potential. He says that the borough’s size and location along the St. Lawrence make it an ideal place for families, business and leisure.

On day one of his mandate he plans to set up four task forces to work on environmental projects, tax reduction, economic development and attracting families, and security. Plans include toxic waste clean-up, door-to-door composting, the creation of a beach on the St. Lawrence, and rebalancing future development to include spaces for families with young children, while also eliminating the borough’s tax surplus.

There’s lots of industrial land for small business development too. Labbé wonders why more economic entrepreneurship isn’t already underway in the borough, given its strengths. He sees possibilities for microbreweries, restaurants and small manufacturers.

He’ll approach colleagues in companies and volunteer boards for help in ensuring that LaSalle grows and prospers.
