Pierre Donais welcomes Denise Savoie, the New Democrat MP for Victoria, B.C. Born in St. Boniface, Man., she trained as a teacher. In 1999, she was elected to Victoria’s City Council as a candidate of the Victoria Civic Electors, which had ties to the NDP. In 2006, she was elected to Parliament with 38.5 per cent of the vote, thus taking the seat from cabinet minister David Anderson. Savoie is the only French-speaking MP from British Columbia sitting in the House of Commons.
Drawing on four decades of radio and TV experience, Pierre has a reputation for being as personable as he is astute. He joined CPAC in 2003 to host Revue Politique, a nightly review of the day’s politics for Francophone viewers. He also delves into the personal with guests on Tête à Tête. A former anchor and journalist at TQS and Télémédia CIMF-FM in Outaouais, Pierre also served as radio host and station manager. He has recently completed his Master’s degree in law at the University of Ottawa.
