The Revue Politique “Tête à Tête” series delves into the lives of newsmakers, movers and shakers. In these in-depth and personal conversations, Pierre Donais sits down with guests to discuss their life experiences and to reveal what drives them today.
In this episode, Pierre speaks with Régis Labeaume, Mayor of Quebec City. Mr. Labeaume was elected as mayor on December 2, 2007, with an overwhelming majority of the popular vote. He replaced former mayor Andrée Boucher, who passed away suddenly early in 2007. Trained as a sociologist, Mr. Labeaume wasted no time putting his stamp on his new role. In 2008, he was instrumental in the success of celebrations marking the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City by Samuel de Champlain.
Drawing on four decades of radio and TV experience, Pierre has a reputation for being as personable as he is astute.

A former anchor and journalist at TQS and Télémédia CIMF-FM in Outaouais, Pierre also served as radio host and station manager.
