For Coderre, adding more police is the only solution to Montreal's apparent security problem.
"There's a problem with security in Montreal [...] and it affects the mountain," he said.
"It's not the time to defund and disarm the police in Montreal."
The candidate also outlined his vision for the mountain itself, including protecting the natural landscape and helping to develop the former site of the Royal Victoria Hospital.
