by becoming the first in North America to ban several forms of lawn and garden pesticides used to kill insects and weeds. The town was sued by two pesticide companies and on June 28, 2001, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in the town's favor by a 9-0 vote. The Hudson example spurred many other municipalities and provinces in Canada to enact similar bans of pesticides. The Hudson case is the subject of an upcoming American documentary movie titled ''A Chemical Reaction'' by filmmaker Brett Plymale. Government Municipal council The Quebec ''Cities and Towns Act'' requires all towns the size of Hudson to have a municipal council of six councillors and one mayor, elected by the local population every four years. The mayor is elected by all Hudson residents, while the town is divided into six wards to elect the councillors. Given the small size of the town, council seats are often won by acclamation. Council meets once per month in the Stephen Shaar Community Centre, named after the mayor who served until 2004 (and presided over its construction). Municipal administrators work in the Town Hall. Town council is responsible for things such as water supply, local road maintenance, zoning, construction permits, and administration of parks. Some responsibilities, such as regional planning, is shared with the county. Council receives its revenues through property taxes, which it establishes. The town maintains its own volunteer fire department and a local patrol to enforce municipal by-laws. class "wikitable" - !Mayor - Ed Provost class "wikitable" ! Councillor !

Its name comes from the historical division of the area into two counties: "Vaudreuil" (named after Pierre François de Rigaud, Marquis de Vaudreuil-Cavagnal, governor of New France) for the communities along the Ottawa River, and "Soulanges" (named after Pierre-Jacques Joybert de Soulanges (Pierre de Joybert de Soulanges et de Marson) from Soulanges, Marne, France) for the communities along the St. Lawrence, a name of Québécois (French-speaking Quebecer) derivation referring to its southerliness. This division of the county into "Vaudreuil" and "Soulanges" still has salience today. The "Vaudreuil" area (consisting of the municipalities of Vaudreuil-Dorion, St-Lazare, Hudson (Hudson, Quebec), Rigaud (Rigaud, Quebec), and others) is closer to Montreal and therefore more suburban, populous, and economically and ethnically diverse, compared to the Soulanges area (including the municipalities of St-Polycarpe, St-Zotique, Coteau-du-Lac, Rivière-Beaudette and Les Coteaux) which is solidly rural, agricultural, and linguistically French-Canadian.
