Benedict XVI officially retires Thursday, February 28, 2013 at 8 pm (time Paris-Rome). He leaves then by helicopter to Castel Gandolfo.
My prediction on who the next Pope will be: Georg Gänswein. Why? Because the resignation of Benedict XVI is caused by crises at the Vatican and they need a Pope very strong. They say Gänswein he is not afraid of anything and he is very loyal to Benedict XVI. In addition he very familiar with the Vatican. It was he who discovered the plot of the recent stolen documents and he confronted the thief, the former butler of the Pope. In addition, several important member of the Church, as for one Mgr Jean-Claude Turcotte, said that the next pope could be someone other than one of the 117 members of the Conclave. The table is set for a candidate like Gänswein.
According to me, Benedict XVI has resigned with the plan to be replaced by his faithful DON GEORG…
A real novel like Dave Brown and his Da Vinci Code.

It felt like at the bottom of the slopes of Mont Tremblant after an afternoon of spring skiing but it was rather a gathering held in downtown Montreal and it was a student protest…
If there is one conclusion to be drawn it is that the change of government in Quebec Parliament has done nothing to eliminate student discontent and there appears the return of spring maple, version 2013! Another conclusion is that the police do not have a sense of humor and do not like to be throw snowballs…

If there is a finding following current Charbonneau Commission hearings on the construction industry in Quebec is the obvious lack of knowledge of Italian culture by Commission officials! Anyone who has known Italians recognize in the speech of Nicolo Miliotto the original flavor and the typical old Italy. For an Italian, all life’s problems can be solved over coffee or a meal and you should never ask too many questions, because for an Italian, to be discreet is a feature that comes with birth. Some call this behavior Omerta…
Is the witness lying? The old Italian saying responds well to the question: “To live a little, you have to cheat a little …”
The Commission has made a strategic error by questioning the witness in French rather than Italian. Because the witness does not speak French well, you lose all the color and true thought. But it may also be the witness who chose this language for just, to cheat a little…
“Per vivere un po, si deve imbrogliare un po.”
“Buona giornata a tutti e viva l’Italia”
