Marie-Andrée Bonneau Wins Municipal Council Seat in Rosemère

Marie-Andrée Bonneau has been elected to the municipal council of Rosemère following a special election held last Sunday.
The election came about to fill the seat vacated by Councillor Carla Brown, who resigned in January. Bonneau and another candidate, Alexandre Raymond from the InnovAction+ party, contended for the position.
Bonneau, running as an independent, secured the council seat with a significant lead, outpacing Raymond by 161 votes. Her victory marks her as the second independent voice on the council, a detail she is particularly proud of.
Reflecting on her campaign strategy, Bonneau highlighted her grassroots approach. “I ran as an independent and sparked a debate. I campaigned without any spending, relying solely on word-of-mouth,” she stated shortly after the final vote counts were revealed.
Bonneau also expressed a deep understanding of her constituents’ concerns and a commitment to represent their voices in the city council. “People want to be heard. Since 2021, things have not progressed. Now, with two independent voices, we hope to initiate healthy debate and push forward on important issues,” she asserted.
She concluded her victory speech with gratitude, saying, “I am very happy and would like to thank all the citizens who turned out to vote,” before ending the evening’s celebrations.
