In this country, for the first time, real moves are being made to give our cities one-man-rule-not just rubber-stamp mayors for a year, but leaders with full executive authority.
In Canada, Montreal was once a roaring vice-ridden city until a little French-Canadian lawyer named Jean Drapeau set to work. He helped write a newspaper series that exposed the vice. Then he was co-prosecutor at the enquiry into the police force that followed.
The city had found a champion.
The people immediately made him mayor-and he has been back to the City Hall four times, the last time with an incredible ninety-four per cent of the vote. Mayor Drapeau has given Montreal the modern metro it had argued over for fifty years, a concert hall shelved for twenty-five years, a vast underground shopping complex—and Expo 67, the world fair that won him international acclaim.
But now the bills are due. Man
Alive caught up with Mayor Drapeau as he faced a city deficit of nearly$30-million (fll-million) -and the first real questioning of his poor record on housing and social welfare. Have we in Britain anything to learn from the policies and actions of this feudal man with a near dictatorial authority, or is he, as one newspaper charged, ' high on prestige, low on compassion'?
