Pierre Donais welcomes lawyer and former cabient minister Michael Fortier.
Following a successful career in business, Michael Fortier was asked to join the federal cabinet in 2006 as minister of public works and government services and the political minister for Montreal. As a member of Stephen Harper’s Conservative government, Fortier sat on numerous ministerial committees and participated in the launch of several initiatives targeting Greater Montreal’s business, cultural, public transportation and infrastructure sectors. In January 2009, he ended his political career and went back to practising business law as a partner with Ogilvy Renault.
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.
