THE OLD PORT OF MONTREAL – SUMMER 2019 –
By Bernard Bujold –
The Old Port of Montréal has come back to life and the holiday season has begun. Among the new features is that the beach, which is actually chairs set up under umbrellas in the sand along the river, is now free except on fireworks nights. Ulysses is very happy to be able to enjoy magnificent walks near the water and he particularly loves to greet his friends the seagulls… 
Have a good summer 2019!

“MY WHOLE LIFE IS A BET” – Donald Trump

June 20, 2019




« MY WHOLE LIFE IS A BET » – Donald J. Trump 
By Bernard Bujold –
The next edition of TIME magazine (July 2, 2019) will be about how the campaign for the Presidency of Donald Trump in 2020 is working. 
Trump is his own man and to be successful, his staff must adapt to his actions of the day. 
The man in charge, his 2020 campaign right arm, is Brad Parscale, a 6 ft. 8 in. former college basketball recruit, a lanky 43-year-old digital-marketing entrepreneur from San Antonio who engineered Trump’s targeted online-ad blitz in 2016. Parscale has hired about 60 staff and he is drawing on his personal tech-startup background to do all this to work out. 
Parscale sees his role as Trump’s facilitator. He’s the campaign manager, the finance director, and the director of everything. Parscale says. “My job is to build a team that’s ready to deal with whatever happens.” 
More often than not, the President will go off-script, and a campaign official likens Trump’s knack for riling voters to an old night-fishing trick, shining high-power flashlights into the water to draw quarry to the surface. “ The United States is a pond. The President is like the lights,”

FRANÇOIS LEGAULT AT THE TOP IN 2019

FRANÇOIS LEGAULT AT THE TOP IN 2019 
By Bernard Bujold – 
Quebec Premier François Legault is at the height of his popularity according to a survey for La Presse, and according to me, he should continue to rise!  
The character surprises and positively. 
Personally, I did not vote for his party in the provincial election (October 18, 2018) but I would do so today without any restraint. 
François Legault reminds me of René Lévesque in his Quebec nationalism; of Donald Trump in his determination and sense of decision; and he displays his own personality as a discreet and sober man in his speeches. 
If I had to make a forecast, it is that François Legault will be Prime Minister for two terms, perhaps even more if he wants to!
