Budget leak prompts strong  ­reactions

Record Staff – The City of Sherbrooke cancelled and then later reinstated the press briefing that typically precedes debate on the municipal budget this weekend in a flip-flop of political manoeuvreing that left some scratching their heads. On Friday Sherbrooke’s French-language newspaper, La Tribune, published a report claiming exclusive access to the confidential draft budget.

See full story in the Monday, Dec. 17 edition of The Record.
