Following Marcel Côté's death on May 25, 2014, Benoit Dorais became party leader. He resigned that position on December 26, 2016 to sit as an independent councillor, before joining Projet Montréal for the 2017 elections.[1]

Marvin Rotrand is currently the interim leader of the coalition, and its representative on Montreal city council; under its rules, he thus sits as an independent councillor[2][3]
