Just a couple hours before the boxing “Fight of the Century” between the Indian (Senator Patrick Brazeau) and the Dandy (MP Justin Trudeau) – Saturday, March 31, 2012 in Ottawa at 8:30 pm. 
Justin is in remarkable form and he trains confident of victory! Senator Patrick Brazeau, nicknamed ‘BRAZMAN “is also convinced of the victory against Justin Trudeau. In fact, he states that Trudeau will eat a beating… Brazeau is in great shape and he was seen at the gym cafeteria having lunch with his fans and supporters … Several media outlets around the world are covering the event including the famous French international magazine PARIS MATCH.

Success as a gift – Jessica Paré and Lisa Leblanc …

March 29, 2012

To what can we attribute the huge success of Jessica Paré and Lisa Leblanc? In both cases, these artists have a real talent in their art but their success is going beyond their talent. Other artists have as good television screen presence as Jessica but they will never reach the fame. It’s the same for Lisa Leblanc who can sing very well but other singers do also very well yet very few people will go to see them in concert. Why? Finally the key to success for Jessica Paré and Lisa Leblanc is based on two very specific elements beyond their talent. One of the elements could be defined as the spirit of survival or in popular parlance: “They have some dog in their character…”. Then we must add the phenomenon of modern internet media. But as the English say: “Enjoy! This is a godsend and it is for you.”

Battle between the Indian and the dandy – Patrick Brazeau against Justin Trudeau…

March 28, 2012

Boxing and political fans will all be in front of the TV Saturday night (LCN) to watch the battle between Justin Trudeau (son of Pierre E. Trudeau) and Patrick Brazeau, a senator who grew up on the Indian reserve in Maniwaki. Trudeau is 40 and he is 6 feet 2 and 175 pounds while the “Indian” is 37 and he is 5 feet 10 and 183 pounds. Obviously bettors favor the “Indian” and many describe Trudeau as’ dandy “because of his looks and his unsheathed. Justin’s father was however considered a strong physical fighter unafraid and many said he had a face like “Indian Chief”, which gave him a distinctive look but respectable and inspiring … Saturday’s fight will be truly an event to see and there will certainly be the presence of Pierre Elliot Trudeau in the arena! Justin Trudeau’s father Pierre Elliott Trudeau was not afraid of anything and he loved to brawl … The boxing match Saturday will recall his memory to all those who knew him and in a sense, his “ghost” will be in the ring with the boxers …
