Education and early career[edit]

Ferrandez holds a PhD in political science from the École des hautes études en sciences sociales in Paris, as well as an MA and a BA in political science from Université du Québec à Montréal.[2]

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.[2] Most recently, he worked as a management consultant.[2] He was the host of the public television show "Bozéjeunnnes" on Radio-Québec in the early 1980s.

Borough mayor[edit]

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.[3]
