From The CBC:

Mayoral candidate Louise Harel said she's not worried about people leaving her party even though three high-profile members of Vision Montreal quit this week.

Former Vision Montreal leader François Purcell announced Thursday afternoon he’ll join Mayor Gérald Tremblay’s Union Montreal party.

Ville-Marie Councillor Karim Boulos said Thursday morning he's leaving Vision Montreal to run as an independent in this fall's municipal election. And on Monday, Vision Montreal’s vice-president, Oksana Kaluzny, quit the party as well.

My Comment: Mayoral candidate Louise Harel's intolerant views towards those who do not share her opinions, as well as having a history of being anti-english and anti-immigrant is starting to catch up to her. Expect more defections from her party as the summer goes on.
