It’s the end of a beautiful chapter

Let’s start at the end. This is the last column in this magazine. Why does the paper fall from the first sentence? To better explain my reasons for making this decision.

You have a forum in pages Montreal Journal So is his alter ego, The Quebec newspaperis a huge privilege.

This one comes with a similar responsibility. To give you the best for every occasion.

different modes

Writing is a different media sport. As far as radio is a different sport than television. All of these mediums have their charms, but not all of them excel equally in each of these disciplines.

I became convinced that writing for a daily newspaper was not my profession. On the contrary, in fact. The countless hours I spent rereading a column and then rewriting it.

Without being satisfied in the end. I don’t think I have this talent, so I chose to discontinue this collaboration, which I nevertheless adored.

Integrity and talent

Keeping this pillar was equivalent to realizing an ancient fantasy. But I owe you my best. I owe respect and honor to those who make this newspaper with passion, integrity and, above all, talent.

That good old godfather Tremblay, the biggest impossible-to-catch fish in the Quebec sports media’s forbidden pond. Regen knows how. He is the one I chose when I was a young teenager when my mother asked me to read a text to her out loud before going to school.

Marc de Foy, a truck driver also knows how. Not for that, as his last breath neared, Guy LaFleur insisted on calling Mark back and sharing kind words with him about Mike Posey, who had just passed away. Mark gave me good advice when it all started in Montreal 15 years ago.

Dear Yvonne Bedno, the one who probably broke the record for scoops in the history of Quebec publications.

The bosses, Denis Poisan and Luke Grenier, with whom it was very interesting to work.

Loyal people in the office. The last stronghold doesn’t look so crazy. They saved my ass a few times.

my best

Which brings us back to this carefully considered and assumed decision. I owe you my best. Quite a few times, in nearly four years, I’ve felt like I’ve handed it to you in these pages. In this context, ending this collaboration seems to me a logical and obvious decision.

I leave it to truly talented writers to continue to inform and engage you. This newspaper is full of talented columnists and journalists. Dedicated men and women who know how to get your attention by telling you good stories. Who knows how to make you react to detailed and presumptuous comments.

Thank you for your diligent reading. It’s a beautiful chapter ending for me, but as you know by now, the others are waiting for us together when we get back in the fall.

At my favorite places, at my favorite ice rinks. Have a good summer and enjoy it, it is precious.

See you soon.
