MONTREAL — Under political fire for a week over a massive speeding fine, the right-hand man to Montreal's mayor has apologized for his lack of judgment.

Benoit Dorais is chairman of Montreal's executive committee, putting him second behind Mayor Valerie Plante in the Projet Montreal administration.

Last week, Le Journal de Montreal reported that Dorais had been clocked in April driving 171 km/h on Highway 35 southeast of Montreal, where the speed limit is 100 km/h. He received a $1,378 ticket.

The newspaper also reported Dorais has received several speeding tickets over the years, including three since he was first elected in 2009.

'Kindly accept my file': B.C. woman finds victory in quest for traffic justice

'Kindly accept my file': B.C. woman finds victory in quest for traffic justice Like many a bad story, Yoshnika Shah's tale of woe begins on a dark and stormy night. Nearly three years later, it's still not over. But the clouds have parted a little. What began with a rollover on B.C.'s most notorious stretch of highway in December 2015 has turned into an odyssey of legal indignity for the 29-year-old. Shah claimed she was handed a ticket for speeding and driving without a licence while she lay unconscious in a hospital bed. A court registry employee wouldn't let her file evidence when she tried to dispute the ticket — a dispute she then lost because she didn't file any evidence.

Dorais apologized in a Facebook post Thursday for his "reprehensible act," acknowledging an error in judgment, and he repeated those comments today to reporters at a transit announcement near Montreal's airport.

Mayor Valerie Plante has reiterated her confidence in Dorais, who added he's apologized to her and his other council colleagues.

Opposition leader Lionel Perez said this week that Dorais had lost the moral authority to govern and should resign his post, noting his actions run counter to Projet Montreal's goal of reducing speed limits in Montreal.

The party has made traffic-calming a central cause, and some opponents accuse it of being anti-car.

Perez maintains the apology comes too late and adds if Dorais stays on, he'll be a distraction to the administration.
