Bernard Bujold ( – 
New media of the future will be funded by wealthy entrepreneurs and grant donations to non-profit organizations. PRO PUBLICA as a group is an example of this new way to inform people. Profitability is no longer available in the operating conventional information tools as for free services have totally transformed the way. Traditional companies like CBC / RADIO-CANADA will have to  consider this new method to fund their future and survival… 
THE FINANCIAL TIMES of London explains in detail the reality of such new business plan for the new information media of tomorrow.

SPRING 2014 – Stories of horses, stables and bicycle …

April 14, 2014

Bernard Bujold ( ) – 
A Facebook friend and barn owner of GRISON (Theo Hug ) wrote last weekend that if it was not because of the presence of children, and if there were only adults attending his stable riding, he would have left the business for a long time… 
The Wall Street Journal of this morning on April 12 published an article on the same subject of daily life in a riding stable… 
As I have ( in another life … ) assiduously frequented the stables and horse people, I can confirm that both : the comment by Theo and the WSJ article, are both faithful portraits of reality… 
In my case, I quit horse riding for less demanding sport of cycling! 
Good spring 2014 to all…

QUEBEC ELECTION 2014 – Predictions of the vote and official results…

April 8, 2014

Bernard Bujold ( ) – 
Quebec has elected a new prime minister until 2018, Philippe Couillard ! 

Liberal Party 70 
Parti Québécois 30 
CAQ 22 
Québec Solidaire 3 

The electoral vote of Monday, April 7 will therefore form the next Government of National Assembly of Quebec. We can not say that Couillard won the election but rather it is Pauline Marois and her team who lost it… 
It is customary for lovers of politics, as if it were a sporting event, to try to predict the outcome of the vote. I almost got the perfecta horse racing with my prediction. 

MY PREDICTION 7 April 2014 ( dated April 5) was : 
Liberal Party majority : 70 members
Parti Québécois : 32 Members 
CAQ ; 20 Members 
Québec solidaire : 3 Members 
Total: 125 members 
My prediction was the sum of all means of communications : surveys, statistical analyzes , internet and conventional media. ” 

– Upon termination of March 5, 2014 by Pauline Marois, the Assembly was: 
PQ 54 
LIB 50 
CAQ 19 
QS 2 

 – From 2008 to 2012 the government of Jean Charest was composed of: 
LIB 66 
PQ 51 
Democratic Action (CAQ) 7 
QS 1 

Philippe Couillard victory with more than 70 members is a historic event and is the largest majority since 2003 when Jean Charest had obtained 76 deputies against 45 Péquistes and 1 ADQ (Mario Dumont ). 
Political power struggles are far from over. The new war will be the one for the selection of a new party leader for PQ and already, although the departure of Pauline Marois was not announced, the contenders began upon the election night their struggle for leadership, a battle that will be very tough ! All political observers have noted and mentioned in their respective media, the disrespect to Marois by this action of the contenders : 
” … the body is not yet cold, but already they argue its property and clothing … ” 
One could compare this situation to the famous Shakespearean text : 
” … I come to bury Caesar , not to praise him … ” 
This sentence of Shakespeare applies perfectly to the end of Pauline Marois. One should have noticed when Pauline gives PKP a kiss on stage the night of her defeat. Pauline’s eyes after a short and cold embrace says it all. This is Caesar to Brutus… 
Stay tuned!
