Montreal Mayor  Michael Applebaum has stepped down – one day after he was charged with a series of criminal offences.

He made the announcement in a brief statement at city hall.

In a message to people of Montreal,  Applebaum said he loves them and promises that he has “never taken a penny from anybody.”

The provincial government had explicitly urged him to resign yesterday, after he was arrested and subjected to 14 criminal charges.

They include fraud, conspiracy, breach of trust, and corruption in municipal affairs.

Also arrested yesterday was Saulie Zajdel – a Conservative Party election candidate in 2011 who now faces five charges including breach of trust, fraud and corruption.
