JUSTIN TRUDEAU IN CONFLICT OF INTEREST 
By Bernard Bujold –
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau violated the Conflict of Interest Act in the SNC-Lavalin case, says Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion, who has just released his report. Several questions arise, including the future of Jody Wilson Raybould, who is said to be interested in the Liberal Party leadership if Justin loses the October election.

The leader of the new political party: the PEOPLE’S PARTY OF CANADA (PPC), Maxime Bernier, is already beginning to attract media attention. Indeed, its participation at the leaders’ debates is in question. In the election race, Maxime Bernier could well be the “King Maker” if the Liberals and Conservatives are tied in the results. It must be recognized that a debate without Bernier would be a little unfair to voters. Moreover, among party leaders, Bernier is the most mediatized after Justin Trudeau. Bernier’s presence at the debate can only increase the number of viewers during the evening viewing. Not inviting him would be disastrous for the organizers.

TENNIS ROGERS CUP 2019 – A DAY WITH RAFAEL NADAL –
By Bernard Bujold- 
Rafael Nadal made his first mark on the Montreal tennis court in August 2005 when he won the Rogers Cup final. He had imposed defeat on the legend André Agassi. I had met the 19-year-old Spaniard, Rafael Nadal at the time and was seduced! Today, in August 2019, 15 years later, I still continue to be seduced by the tennis champion. 
Here is a one day of tennis with the brave RAFA.
