ROYAL WEDDING HARRY AND MEGHAN - MAY 2018


HARRY AND MEGHAN ROYAL WEDDING - MAY 2018 
By Bernard Bujold- 
There are two types of events I never attend in my life! Weddings and burials... 
However, I watched on TV (Fox News) some pictures of the wedding of the day, that of Harry and Meghan. 
My favorite moment was when the black priest, the American bishop Michael Curry presented his sermon... 
Long live the bride and groom, wishing it lasts!

ELECTIONS QUÉBEC 2018 AND THE ART OF POLITICS...


ELECTIONS QUÉBEC 2018 AND THE ART OF POLITICS... 
By Bernard Bujold- 
The element 101 in politics is knowing how to surround yourself with winning players to create good news and scapegoats to ward off bad news... 
Philippe Couillard managed to win a champion by bringing Alexandre Taillefer as campaign chairman. Indeed, while the media are focused on criticizing Taillefer, no one criticizes Couillard. The only surprise is how Taillefer did not understand Couillard's game plan? In contrast, François Legault failed in what could have been a great championship if he convinced Lucien Bouchard to join his party as a transitional advisor in the event of an electoral victory. Lucien quickly understood the game of identification and he refused to become the door color of Legault, which would have been a master stroke... 
Conclusion: I still expect a victory of Philippe Couillard October 1 if he continues to play his cards strategist, as it does so far!

By Bernard Bujold-
The best writer that I read in my life is dead today May 15, 2018! I will always remember him and his book: A MAN IN FULL which is also in a way the story of my life! THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES was also a very impressive book about human live and society!

LA PRESSE AND ITS FUTURE ACCORDING TO ANDRÉ DESMARAIS


THE PRESS AND ITS FUTURE ACCORDING TO ANDRÉ DESMARAIS... 
By Bernard Bujold- 
According to André Desmarais' confession in an interview in The Globe and Mail (May 11, 2018), La Presse had no way of becoming profitable because of the small number of potential readers in Quebec and this is the reason for the transfer of the company to a foundation. The question that arises: "If the population is not large enough to make a private project profitable, how can this same population finance with its donations the same company that has become a non-profit organization? 
The conclusion is clear: La Presse is condemned to disappear permanently when Power Corporation will no longer be the money funder!
