From CTV News:

The economic crisis is taking a toll on the city of Montreal.

Renée Sauriol, a spokesperson for Mayor Gérald Tremblay, has confirmed to CTV Montreal that the administration is looking for ways to cut back on spending, to address a $100 million hole in its budget.

City hall may prolong a hiring freeze, among other measures.

Members of Montreal's executive committee need to come to a consensus before any final decisions are made.

The next Montreal executive committee meeting is on Wednesday.
