Members of Montreal Mayor Gerald Tremblay's Union Montreal party are meeting this weekend to put together the party's platform for the November first municipal election.
Roughly 500 delegates voted on dozens of resolutions from housing and security to the environment.
The mayor says in the months leading up to the election he'll be talking about improving montrealers' quality of life, and that includes projects like building a tramway.
"The people that are here are committed to the realizations of major projects and as a result of that they're passionate and they really want our political platform to represent the will of the citizens," said Tremblay.
On Sunday the mayor and his leading opponent, Vision Montreal mayoral candidate Louise Harel, will present their full slate of candidates for this fall's election.
