Benoit was part of the Dore administration in the early 90s and has been kicking around municipal politics since.
He has most recently been known as the guy who asks a lot of questions in question and answer periods about Bixi.
We salute him for his sly ability to look important next to the premier and the interim mayor (whatever his name is).
Sorta ruins the picture for the premier though. Which goes to show, one man's photo op, is another man's photo bomb.
