MONTREAL — Quebec’s anti-corruption police arrested Montreal Mayor Michael Applebaum Monday morning, a UPAC spokesperson said.
 
Applebaum is in custody and has been taken to the headquarters of the S?reté du Québec, UPAC spokesperson Anne-Frédérick Laurence said. She refused to provide details.
 
Former city councillor Saulie Zajdel, from C?te des Neiges-Notre Dame de Grace borough, and the borough's former director of permits, Jean-Yves Bisson, have also been arrested.
 
Zajdel was a member of Montreal's city executive committee in charge of urban planning under former mayor Pierre Bourque. He then joined Gérald Tremblay's Montreal Island Citizens Union party (later called Union Montreal) for the 2001 megacity election. He served as a city councillor in C?te des Neiges-Notre Dame de Grace borough under Applebaum, who was mayor of the borough until this past November, and his Union Montreal team until he left municipal politics in 2009.

Bisson initially worked under former borough permits director, Robert Rousseau, who committed suicide several hours after he was interrogated by UPAC in March.
