Former city councillor Saulie Zajdel, from Côte des Neiges-Notre Dame de Grâce borough has been arrested by Quebec’s Permanent Anti Corruption Unit. His arrest was coupled with the arrests of Montreal City Mayor Michael Applebaum, who served as the borough’s mayor for many years and Jean-Yves Bisson, the former borough’s former director of permits.
Saulie Zajdel served in many capacities in the Jewish community over the years including the Executive Director of Bnai Brith Canada’s Quebec office. Most recently he ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for the Conservative Party in the Mount Royal riding during the last federal election.
