Tremblay won the 2001 unicity election, and by sweeping the former suburban island municipalities, UCIM
won a majority on the enlarged City Council with 43 of the 73 seats.
A majority of voters in all 15 demerging boroughs supported the mayor and his Union of the Citizens of the Island of Montreal (UCIM
) in the last election.
In 2001, Tremblay negotiated an alliance between suburban political formations and the remains of the Rassemblement des Citoyens de Montreal, the opposition party in premerger Montreal, to create the broad-based Union des Citoyens et Citoyennes de Montreal (UCIM).
In the election, Tremblay and his UCIM candidates earned solid majorities in the mainly English-speaking suburban boroughs.
On the east side, Anjou Borough Mayor Luis Miranda has called for demerger on the grounds that his constituents are being taxed to subsidize less prosperous boroughs, like neighbouring Saint-Leonard, (11) a stance that led to his expulsion from the UCIM caucus.
Tremblay negotiated a merger with the much weakened RCM to form the Union des Citoyens et Citoyennes de Montreal (UCIM).
For their part, the French media played up the presence and proclamations of well known federalists among suburban mayors prominent in the UCIM. Neutrality and impartiality were hard to find.
To general surprise an agreement was reached and a new party, the Union des citoyens et des citoyennes de l'Ile de Montreal (UCIM), was born in early July, in good time for the November elections.
Many suburban UCIM candidates, still on record as being anti-merger, found themselves alongside candidates sympathetic to the merger and campaigning under the pro merger Tremblay slogan "It's Going To Work." Nonetheless, once the UCIM was created, Tremblay surged in the polls; suddenly he was neck-and-neck with Bourque.
