January 1, 2010
|Preceded by||Michel Labrecque|
|Political party||Projet Montréal|
Luc Ferrandez from Montreal, Quebec, was the interim leader of the municipal party Projet Montreal from 2014. Since 2009, he has served as the mayor of the borough of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal. He is a member of the Projet Montréal municipal political party.
Education and early career
He previously served as director of communications for CAE Inc., as a senior communications advisor at Hydro-Québec and was a senior researcher in environmental matters for the French National Centre for Scientific Research. Most recently, he worked as a management consultant. He was the host of the public television show "Bozéjeunnnes" on Radio-Québec in the early 1980s.
As borough mayor of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal, Ferrandez reduced snow removal services. In order to reduce expenses related to overtime compensation, he refused to send snow removal crews out immediately following snow storms, on weekends, or when the total accumulation was five inches or less. The move has garnered both support and criticism.
