New inspector for City of Montreal

A high-profile lawyer with a long history of fighting organized crime has been appointed by Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre as the city's new inspector general.

Denis Gallant used to be a familiar face to Quebecers as a star attorney at the province’s public inquiry into corruption in the construction industry.

He was also previously a Crown prosecutor specializing in cases involving organized crime, illegal drugs and the proceeds of crime.

The Quebec government modified Montreal’s city charter on Feb. 12 to create the position, which was promised by Coderre in his election campaign last fall.

Gallant has a five-year, non-renewable mandate to be the city’s anti-corruption watchdog in the awarding and execution of city contracts.

He will report to city council, which can overturn his decisions, and will have a $5-million budget.
