Montreal's Mayor Forgot He Owns His House

Who forgets a house?
Montreal's Mayor Forgot He Owns His House

Dennis Coderre, Montreal's most recently elected mayor, forgot he owns a house in Montreal North. Well, at least he forgot to mention it on a required statement of pecuniary interests.

Every year, each city official must complete a written release declaring their position, services, and owned property. Coderre neglected to mention he owns a house in the city, but stated the mistake would be corrected.

Is this a small oversight on the part of Montreal's mayor or  something more sinister? Either way, I'm sure citizens of Montreal would feel better about their new mayor if he could remember the specifics of his own life. Not the best way for the mayor to recover his image after the whole #Coderring thing.
