In this episode, Pierre Donais sits down with Michael Ignatieff. During the Fall of 2013, Michael Ignatieff published his latest book, in which he discusses his time in federal politics. First elected in 2006, he ran for the Liberal Party leadership shortly thereafter but finished second behind Stéphane Dion. Following the Liberals’ defeat in the 2008 election, Ignatieff was chosen to lead the party, and he tried to get them back into power in 2010. However, the Liberals experienced a crushing defeat instead.
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.
