Quebec City: $ 2.26 million in severance allowances for outgoing elected officials

Quebec elected officials who bowed out or were beaten in the last election are not leaving empty-handed. They divide an amount that totals $ 2.26 million in severance and transition allowances.

It is the former mayor of Quebec, Régis Labeaume, who pockets the highest amount, after 14 years at the head of the city. He receives $ 92,367 in severance allowance and $ 173,127 in transition allowance.

Indeed, elected officials are entitled to the severance bonus by virtue of the law when they “cease to be members of the municipal council after having accumulated at least two years of service credited to the pension plan”. As regards the transition allowance, an elected official is entitled to it when he ceases “to be a member of the municipal council after having been so for at least 24 months preceding the end of his mandate”.

Marie-Josée Savard, who was defeated as mayor, leaves with $ 20,047.98 in severance allowance and $ 130,852 in transition allowance.

In total, 15 elected officials will share the envelope designated for this purpose, including four who were not re-elected, namely Émilie Villeneuve, Suzanne Verreault, Patrick Paquet and Jean Rousseau.
