FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DU CANADA 2017 – 
By Bernard Bujold – 
The 2017 Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada (June 8 to 11) has invaded Montreal and to mark the 50th anniversary of the race, several streets in the city are being mobilized. It is the street PEEL which is the center of activities with a hallmark both public fair and products of luxury. PEEL is used from René-Lévesque to Sherbrooke. You can then continue towards the street CRESCENT by walking on La Balade de la Paix of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Finally, Old Montreal wanted to participate as well, and part of St-Paul Street was close, but only with terraces for their street restaurants … 
Conclusion: time is at the party in Montreal!

JAMES COMEY AND DONALD TRUMP – THE INTERROGATION (2017)

June 10, 2017


JAMES COMEY AND DONALD TRUMP – 
By Bernard Bujold – 
The interrogation of former FBI director James Comey was not damaging as expected by some for the President Donald Trump but we did learn that the director Comey “leaked” his notes to the New York Times… 
Comey also confirmed that he told Donald Trump three times that he was not under inquiry and that Trump did not order him to stop any enquiry but said “hoped” that the FBI could conclude the inquiry on Michael Flynn and close it. 
Conclusion: It was supposed to be the show of the summer 2017 and if the US citizens are all divided in the middle about their political opinion, everyone wanted to watch the interrogation live on all TV networks. But at the end, no explosive surprise and life is still going on. 
 Donald Trump is the President until the next election  of 20202, with the up and down of the day to day. “The chair of the Presidency is taken and Donald Trump has it, even if some people would wish the contrary…”

BARACK OBAMA IN MONTREAL

June 7, 2017


BARACK OBAMA IN MONTREAL – 
By Bernard Bujold – 
Barack Obama came to Montreal… 
I asked myself if I should go to his speech? 
Well, because of my political opinion I would have had to get there incognito… 
But hey! I am a very open person and I like to talk politics. I even had an idea! Why not to offer a gift to Barack. A small red car of the Champion (a Donald Trump toy car…)! 
Finally, I decided that it was more appropriate for me to watch the speech on TV… 
My opinion about it! 
Barack Obama speech was a philosophical overview about the world situation, a look on the past, and on the future. Obama is in favour of a world without real border with immigration open between all nations which is the contrary of the actual US President vision. 
Obama agreed that the world is actually very divided and people are either on the left or right but nobody is in the middle and no one is open to change their view. 
Obama did not mention once Donald Trump by name and his whole speech was more philosophical than political. But it is evident that Obama ideas are totally to the opposite of those of Donald Trump. Obama is a good speaker and one could see during his presentation in Montreal more the former Harvard teacher than the former US President. 
Close to 5,000 persons assisted to the speech which was also available on the french tv networks in Quebec but CNN did not air the event…
