Long-serving mayor on the Island of Montreal stepping down after 39 years
MONTREAL -- After 39 years in municipal politics in the Montreal suburb of Dorval, Edgar Rouleau will not be seeking another term.
Rouleau said he made the decision for personal reasons and that he is happy with the direction the city is going.
"39 years is a lot of years, and I've enjoyed every minute of it," he said. "My wife allowed me 39 years, so I think I'll spend more time with her at home. This is the only reason."
Rouleau has been mayor for 16 years, and served as a city councillor before that.
