MIKE DUFFY – AN HONEST MAN

April 22, 2016


BY BERNARD BUJOLD – 
Mike Duffy is not a thief! He is a greedy but a greedy honest… 
His story is similar to the one of a customer at IGA! There is a difference between a customer who leaves the store without paying for a bottle of wine hidden in his bag; and another customer devouring four mouthfuls rather than one at the table of free tastings. 
Mike Duffy is the greedy customer but does not stole. 
I’ve known Mike when he was a journalist with CTV. He was a fair play man and always very nice but he loved the luxury. For a while he was riding in a Roll Royce (rented on his expense account) to impress the listeners of his TV show. But Duffy was not a thief,  just a journalist who was reading his contracts and use of the possibilities offered by employers. 
QUESTION: Who among us has never taken a second bite at the free tasting table in IGA (or a COSTCO)?

PENELOPE MCQUADE – PHOTOGRAPHER AND AUTHOR

April 21, 2016


PAR BERNARD BUJOLD – 
Pénélope McQuade vient de publier une sorte de guide sur les choses et endroits qu’elle aime, à Montréal comme ailleurs dans le monde. 
J’ai profité de ma visite en ville pour me procurer le livre. 
L’ouvrage est à la fois un livre photos décoratif pour la table de salon; un livre de chevet pour feuilleter avant ou après le sommeil; un livre touristique pour préparer son prochain voyage; ou simplement une discussion intime avec Pénélope au sujet de ses goûts et intérêts personnels. J’ai bien aimé la présentation graphique qui n’a rien de traditionnelle, pas plus d’ailleurs que les photos (prises par Pénélope) qui sont différentes des photos que l’on retrouve habituellement dans un livre photos et cadrée dans un style moderne, genre Instagram. 
Bref, un livre à se procurer!

DONALD TRUMP WINS BIG IN NEW YORK

April 20, 2016


BY BERNARD BUJOLD – The strong victory of Donald Trump in New York (April 19, 2016) will give him back the winning momentum for his campaign and all the political observers are predicting that this New York victory should also bring him the Republican victory as the official candidate against the Democrats. 
All over United States, the Donald Trump’s fans are very happy and, even in Canada, some supporters have been seen in front of the City Hall of Montreal…

EUGENIE AT THE COTTAGE

April 14, 2016


by Bernard Bujold –
The spring season is an opportunity to prepare well for the warmer activities that should be following, with the summer. 
I decided to put all chances on my side to facilitate Eugenie decision to accept my invitation to a bike ride in 2016.
I prepared for her a nice well-oiled and well-adjusted bicycle. 
I even put out the little bench that I have set in front of the pond cottage… 
It lacks only the beautiful Eugenie!

THE MODERN JOURNALISM IN 2016 – THE PANAMA PAPERS

April 11, 2016


By Bernard Bujold – 
In the past, a serious scandal might take years before being known and their consequences to become a reality. In today modern journalism, a scandal only takes hours before being known to the whole world and the application of consequences for those implicated are often days behind the first publication. 
The “Panama Papers” are a good example of the modern journalism!

THOMAS MULCAIR – REJECTION OF THE APPLICATION

April 11, 2016


By Bernard Bujold – 
Thomas Mulcair wanted deeply to get the job and he did everything to win the job interview for the NDP leader position. 
Unfortunately for Thomas, the employer refused his offer and in a proportion of 52% of the delegates present at the party congress, held from April 8 to 10, 2016 in Edmonton, who voted to hold a leadership convention. They want a new leader! 
Mulcair was so disappointed with the rejection of his application that he proposed to do the job until the hiring of a new chief. Will his proposal hit the road? To be continued…
