In this episode, Pierre Donais welcomes François Bonnardel. François Bonnardel has represented the riding of Shefford in Quebec’s National Assembly since 2007, first as a member of the ADQ then – since the last provincial election – as a Coalition avenir Québec MNA. Before embarking on a political career, he held different jobs in the commercial and started his own business in the 1990s, running different businesses linked to the auto industry in the Granby area.
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.
