The Trudeau government and the Opposition have their first face-off. The Finance Minister concedes that cutting federal income taxes for middle income earners will not be fully offset by raising the tax rate for the richest Canadians. Pierre Donais discusses this measure with Liberal MP Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Conservative MP Jacques Gourde, and NDP MP Karine Trudel. Quebec’s physician-assisted suicide law will not come into force on December 10 as expected, giving the federal government more time to study the issue. Constitutional expert Stéphane Beaulac explains the legal ramifications while Dr. Pierre Harvey provides a medical perspective.
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.
