THE LEGACY OF JOHNNY

February 13, 2018


THE LEGACY OF JOHNNY … 
By Bernard Bujold – 
The case of Johnny Hallyday’s legacy makes me think of a vernissage at the museum … 
Indeed, what is most disturbing in death, rich and poor, is always the inheritance. It’s like humans are becoming birds of prey … 
In humans, we would fight the inheritance to get a simple pair of old stockings (socks)! 
Perhaps it is the gratuity of the inheritance of the dead? Free is very powerful. 
I was able to see it one day during a vernissage at the Museum of Fine Arts. When the waiters arrived with trays of free food, the guests, intellectuals, were running for it like hungry, just like crows. One can imagine if the guests had been ignorant … 
It’s a bit of the same situation with the inheritance of the dead. We become crows!


JOHNNY HALLYDAY AND HIS TESTAMENT

February 13, 2018


JOHNNY HALLYDAY 
By Bernard Bujold – 
Whoever once said that a man like him should never die continues to live, at least for his children and his heritage! 
Indeed, according to Johnny HALLYDAY’s testament, everything goes to Laeticia … 
The first two children received nothing, not even an old record sleeve. 
The will would not be possible to apply in France but it was officially read in California where Hallyday usually resided most of the year. Note, however, that the document was signed in 2014 in France. 
In France one “can not” disinherit his immediate family but in the United States yes, except that it is possible for the family to contest the will in court. 
Another scandal for the media, especially in France where Johnny was admired just like an Elvis Presley in the United States or a Celine Dion in Quebec!

GÉRARD DEPARDIEU AND DONALD TRUMP

February 13, 2018


GÉRARD DEPARDIEU AND DONALD TRUMP 
By Bernard Bujold –
I read during the last weekend the most recent book by Gerard Depardieu. A kind of autobiography, a fifth, because he wrote four others before … 
If there is one conclusion to the book, it is that Gerard looks very close in terms of his personality to Donald Trump. In both cases, they are free spirits who give very little importance to the “politically correct”. Gerard writes in a very French style but also short without superfluous words, and his confidences are always very inspiring. 
A book to read!

LUC AND BERNARD

February 8, 2018


LUC AND BERNARD … 
By Bernard Bujold –
I have just finished reading the biography of Luc Lavoie. 
Captivating but I am disappointed that there is nothing about the journalists friends Michel Vastel, Michel Gratton and Mike Duffy … 
Quite strangely enough, and it was a discovery, Luc and I are like two twin brothers! Indeed, we are both born in Gaspésie; both on a June 28 of the 50s; the two started as a journalist on the radio; the two became parliamentary correspondents, he in Ottawa and I in Quebec; to then become a political assistant one after the other for the same Prime Minister Brian Mulroney; the two have held the position of assistant to the president of Quebecor, me for the father and him for the son; and to finish with each a biographical book. 
The question is: will our next fulfillment of life be different from each other?

THE HOLY HAND

January 30, 2018


THE HOLY HAND 
By Bernard Bujold –
A relic of St-François Xavier, the right forearm, is exhibited in Montreal, notably at the Cathedral Marie Reine du Monde. 
Although I am not a Catholic practitioner, as I grew up as a teenager in a presbytery with my aunt who was the priest’s maid, I still like today to attend religious events. Moreover, since I have an exact replica of the watch worn by Pope Francis, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make it a relic of the third degree (something that touched the body of a saint ). 
Thousands of Catholics, or observers like me, assisted at the evening of veneration held Sunday evening January 28 with Bishop Christian Lépine. The relic of St. Francis Xavier is on display in Montreal until Tuesday, January 30, 2018 including at the church Gesus.
