Bernard Lang, the former mayor of Côte-St-Luc, died on Thursday. Lang was 88.
First elected as a councillor in 1963, Lang was then elected mayor in 1976 and served his community for a total of 35 years. He retired from politics in 1998 but came out of retirement in 2005 to again run as mayor. Borough councillor Anthony Housefather claimed the mayor’s seat with a convincing victory over Lang, then 80 years old.
