Coderre promises to help merchants affected by roadwork, Fortier wants more secure spot for WADA

Montreal's main candidates for the mayor's job were out and about today as the third week of the municipal election campaign winds down.

The incumbent Denis Coderre promised that if re-elected he'd set up a compensation plan for merchants affected by major roadwork as well as differential tax rates on the first chunk of value of non-residential buildings.

Projet Montreal leader Valerie Plante was out campaigning including a stop at Concordia University.

Coalition Montreal mayoral candidate Jean Fortier wants a new, more secure location for the World Anti-Doping Agency which is now located at the Stock Exchange Tower, a proposal he claims is supported by ex-agency president Richard Pound.

Voting Day is November 5.
