But it was not a complete de-merger. ''...without, however, giving them all the powers they had originally.''

The agglomeration of Montréal was created in order to manage certain services of general competence (eg police, firemen, water, economic development), while the cities manage local skills (leisure, public works, etc.).

Coderre is still in control of the whole island. The president of the agglomeration is the mayor of Montréal.

The West Island is not growing anymore.

When we talk about Montréal, we should be talking about the whole island, not just the city.
