The leader of Projet Montréal, Valérie Plante, reports that Projet Montréal has broken its historical fundraising record by raising $421,000, as of October 21st. This amount results from the donations of 3 086 people. More than half of these donors (52%) made a donation to Projet Montréal for the first time, a sign that Projet Montréal's ideas continue to garner support from a growing number of Montrealers.
Never in the history of Projet Montréal has such a sum been raised. Projet Montréal is ready for the final stretch of the campaign and will hold its rally later this morning, bringing together the team of candidates, as well as members and supporters of the political party.
"This new fundraising record for Projet Montréal proves that our party is on a roll and that it has a broad and solid base in the Montréal population. I feel this support growing every day, when I meet citizens of Montréal. It encourages and gives us energy, my team and I, to multiply our efforts until election night, and we will do everything to win, "said Valerie Plante, Mayor of Montréal and leader of Projet Montréal.
