Success as a gift - Jessica Paré and Lisa Leblanc ...

To what can we attribute the huge success of Jessica Paré and Lisa Leblanc? In both cases, these artists have a real talent in their art but their success is going beyond their talent. Other artists have as good television screen presence as Jessica but they will never reach the fame. It's the same for Lisa Leblanc who can sing very well but other singers do also very well yet very few people will go to see them in concert. Why? Finally the key to success for Jessica Paré and Lisa Leblanc is based on two very specific elements beyond their talent. One of the elements could be defined as the spirit of survival or in popular parlance: "They have some dog in their character...". Then we must add the phenomenon of modern internet media. But as the English say: "Enjoy! This is a godsend and it is for you."

Boxing and political fans will all be in front of the TV Saturday night (LCN) to watch the battle between Justin Trudeau (son of Pierre E. Trudeau) and Patrick Brazeau, a senator who grew up on the Indian reserve in Maniwaki. Trudeau is 40 and he is 6 feet 2 and 175 pounds while the "Indian" is 37 and he is 5 feet 10 and 183 pounds. Obviously bettors favor the "Indian" and many describe Trudeau as' dandy "because of his looks and his unsheathed. Justin's father was however considered a strong physical fighter unafraid and many said he had a face like "Indian Chief", which gave him a distinctive look but respectable and inspiring ... Saturday's fight will be truly an event to see and there will certainly be the presence of Pierre Elliot Trudeau in the arena! Justin Trudeau's father Pierre Elliott Trudeau was not afraid of anything and he loved to brawl ... The boxing match Saturday will recall his memory to all those who knew him and in a sense, his "ghost" will be in the ring with the boxers ...

Student demonstration of March 22 - 200,000 people participated in Montreal to demonstrate against rising tuition fees in Quebec...

Over 200,000 people took part in the march of students against rising tuition fees in Quebec. It was a walk model, which surpassed all other popular parades held in Montreal for the past 10 years. We must congratulate the student organizers for their success and hope that the government resolve this conflict as soon as possible. Student leaders did not expect that this work brings the Prime Minister to change his mind but rather the goal was to encourage students on strike against the validity of their opposition to the increase in tuition . We can say that their goal was met! Moreover, a popular survey indicates that people want the government to address this debate and stop ignoring it as if nothing had happened.
All agree to admit that the student demonstration on March 22 was the most successful for several years at the rallies in Quebec. For this reason, it could be called a historic event ...
Organizers estimated the crowd at 200,000 people while the police estimated the crowd at over 100,000 people but also said that they had never seen so many people in a parade in Montreal.
To be continued ...
