Final lap for Pierre Bruneau

Last lap for Pierre Bruneau


Although he is piloting his very last election night tonight, Pierre Bruneau is not the type to lapse into regrets and nostalgia.

The summer he has just spent cycling, fishing and traveling to Labrador will have allowed him to tame what awaits him from tomorrow, when we will no longer see him on TV.< /p>

“I am very proud of my 46 years as a TVA anchor and my 50 years of journalism. I want to enjoy life a bit now and think about myself. I'm very realistic, I don't venture [into retirement] with regrets or nostalgia, I'm not nostalgic by nature. »

Today, for his final lap, he will surround himself with his usual collaborators – Mario Dumont, Paul Larocque, Emmanuelle Latraverse, Jean-Marc Léger and Pierre-Olivier Zappa – for a long marathon which promises anything but to be boring, so many surprises and twists are expected.

Chefs in danger

“Three of the five chefs are not guaranteed to win victory in their own riding,” he recalled, speaking of Liberal Dominique Anglade (Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne), Conservative Éric Duhaime (Chauveau) and PQ Paul St-Pierre Plamondon (Camille-Laurin ).

Marie-Anne Lapierre will be in the studio with some forty voters to collect their reactions. 

In the field, five journalists will tell the highlights of the gatherings of the main parties: Claudie Côté will be in Montreal with Québec solidaire, Maxime Denis will be in Québec with the Conservative Party of Québec, Raymond Filion will be in Montréal with the Liberal Party of Québec, Alain Laforest will be in the Old Capital with the Coalition Avenir Québec and Julie Marcoux will be in Boucherville with the Parti Québécois.


Nothing was left randomly to refine this election evening, with rehearsals and tests carried out since Thursday. 

“My role is to be a sponge that absorbs all the information to revive my colleagues and the journalists on the field,” said Pierre Bruneau in an interview with the QMI Agency.

In 1976, during his first election night on TVA, five parties had succeeded in electing at least one deputy. The outcome of tonight's vote could allow as many political parties to take their place in the Blue Room of the National Assembly. 

“This year, there are five parties that have more than 10 % of voting intentions. It's new. There are also nearly 23% of voters who voted in advance, so there is really interest in this campaign, “said the 70-year-old man.

In addition to having hosted the Head-to-head Quebec 2022, Pierre Bruneau toured several regions. “As a broadcaster, our goal is to meet people and also talk about regional concerns,” he said, recalling that TVA is present in 10 regions.


Pierre Bruneau hosts election night from 6:30 p.m. on LCN and from 7:30 p.m. on TVA and LCN.

His usual collaborators Mario Dumont, Paul Larocque, Emmanuelle Latraverse, Jean-Marc Léger and Pierre-Olivier Zappa, on the giant touch screen, surround him.

Patrice Roy is leading election night from 5:55 p.m. on ICI RDI and from 7:30 p.m. on ICI Télé and ICI RDI.

Sébastien Bovet, Alec Castonguay, Manon Cyr, Luc Ferrandez, Chantal Hébert and Régis Labeaume are in the game.

Marie-Christine Bergeron and Michel Bherer are in charge of Noovo's election night starting at 7 p.m.

With the participation of Philippe J. Fournier, Sébastien Proulx, Martine St-Victor, Dominic Vallières and Antonine Yaccarini.
