What to break with the radical image that follows him since Spring Maple? Without denying his past, he says he has changed and matured. “I was very good in 2012 to say what I did not want. I think today I’m a little better to say what I want, “he said. To see what wood he heats, we would have liked to see him confronted more. There was no mention of his declaration on the political class that “betrayed Quebec”, decried by several since Thursday, nor of his hesitation to create alliances with the Parti Québécois.
The prospect of “making the 400 political coups” with Manon Massé as co-spokesperson of Quebec solidarily enthusiasm enormously. “As a political duo, I could not dream of a partner who was as effective and honest as Manon Massé.” The former student leader acknowledged that the party would have to make efforts to convince the silent majority to have more candidates elected . He deplored the fact that it was the right-wing that had addressed the middle class in recent years. “We convince people who make $ 60,000 that their stagnation is due to people who make $ 25,000 a year. And the people who say that to them are people who make $ 300,000 a year. We will not name names, “he said, certainly targeting radio presenters.
The card of the king’s madman: “We know that you are able to sink maple in the spring, now let’s see if you have enough sap to produce syrup year round.”
Julien Clerc’s visit, which had not been announced, because he was in Live from the universe the day before; It would have been a surprise.

He was singing on the Plains on the evening of the attack on Nice. It was his friend Robert Charlebois who taught him the bad news just before he went on stage. We saw Julien Clerc singing Useful to the tribute to the victims, a very touching sequence.
Rose of shyness as her dress before Julien Clerc, the adorable Julie Le Breton told the singer to become a woman listening to her songs. And dreaming of meeting a man who spoke equally well to women. She will be the naughty nurse in Flying over a Cuckoo’s Nest at the Green Curtain.

For the series Victor Lessard Club illico, she wore “big babes of guys” to masculinize, but did not go as far as gaining weight, as the character of the novel; The actress also turned on other plates.

In the “inspiring interview” category, a great meeting with players Caroline Ouellette and Ann-Sophie Bettez and their assistant coach Lisa-Marie Breton, who won the Clarkson Cup for the Montreal Canadiens. Unfortunately, women’s hockey still lacks visibility despite its successes. “We’re tired of that. We must continue to fight, we must say so that it changes, “says Caroline Ouellette.
