MELANIA TRUMP AND THE RED CHRISTMAS TREES OF 2018

MELANIA TRUMP AND THE RED CHRISTMAS TREES OF 2018
by Bernard Bujold 
The red Christmas trees of Melania Trump are all the rage on social media, several laudatory comments and very favorable, others in a slightly mocking tone. 
But this red fashion is also found all over the world this season and especially in downtown Montreal. Either Melania has copied decorators hired by Peter Simons stores, or Peter copied Melania’s decorators… Indeed, both have the same red trees! 
We will have to do an inquiry!

DOUG FORD IN 2018

DOUG FORD IN 2018… 
By Bernard Bujold 
Many Quebeckers criticize Caroline Mulroney for not standing up to Doug Ford on the French language. But even if she did, it would have been a sword blow in the water… 
Caroline Mulroney had a chance to be a great politician in Canadian history, but fate had it differently. It was during the Ontario Cheffery campaign that she lost. His political career is in the past, but not because of French. Caroline is rich financially and socially (with her family and that of her husband) and she will quickly move on in her life in a few years, if not months. 
I was supporting Caroline in the leadership run  and I was surprised by Ford’s victory, but in my opinion, the latter has the wind in the sails, in Ontario, an English-speaking province… 
Here in Quebec, one will have to watch François Legault who could be the clone of Ford, but in French. It will however be necessary to see, because Legault is more shy, by nature, than Ford, Trump and company… 
But if Legault has the courage of his ideas, he could be the “René Lévesque” of 2018!

NUNS’ ISLAND IN 2018 
By Bernard Bujold 
There was a time when Nuns’ Island was a haven of peace and nature. It used to be, in 1991 as far as I am concerned, because in 2018, in the space of a few months, two stabbings between teenagers…

FRENCH BOOK FAIR OF MONTREAL 2018 –

November 15, 2018


FRENCH BOOK FAIR OF MONTREAL 2018 – 
By Bernard Bujold –
The 41st Montreal Book Fair is being held at Place Bonaventure from November 14 to 19, 2018. More than 2,000 authors are present at Salon 2018. There are fewer international stars than last year as big names such as Kathy Reichs are absent and, for this reason, we can say that the 2018 show has a more Quebec flavour.

VITO RIZZUTO – A NEW BIOGRAPHY

November 14, 2018


VITO RIZZUTO –  A NEW BIOGRAPHY 
By Bernard Bujold – 
I just finished reading the new biography of Vito Rizzuto: VITO RIZZUTO – LA CHUTE DU DERNIER PARRAIN written by Daniel Renaud of La Presse. 
The book lifts a veil on the last years of Rizzuto’s reign and how the empire collapsed. The interest of this book is the collaboration of a police officer as co-author, policeman who has long been the one who inquired on the actions of the Montreal godfather. The book teaches various police surveillance techniques… and even more! 
If there is one conclusion: “Never trust the pretty stranger, a blue-eyed blonde girl who sits in the next-class first-class seat on a long-haul flight. This pretty girl might be an undercover policewoman whose mission is to know your secrets!
