The numerous participants also had the opportunity to hear Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montréal, Yves-Thomas Dorval, President of the Conseil du patronat du Québec and Mario Lefebvre, Director of the Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for Municipal Studies, speak about major issues for 2013 with respect to the economy, politics and particularly the real estate sector.
