Francois Legault and Pierre Poilievre

Bye Bye 2022


It’s a classic. Political news invariably feeds Bye. The re-election of the CAQ should bring us back François Legault, but we can also think that Pierre Poilievre, new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, will make an appearance.

Speaking of Poilievre, his support for truckers who parked for weeks last winter in downtown Ottawa reminds us that this disturbing convoy has something to inspire the authors of the Bye.

Influencers who party on a plane in defiance of the health rules then in force, a prime minister who calls them Ostrogoths, and an organizer, James William Awad, who holds a surreal press conference. This is a sketch that writes itself.

Volodymyr Zelensky

It seems unthinkable to miss the war in Ukraine. Here, the challenge will be to find the right tone to evoke this tragedy. Highlighting the courage of the Ukrainian president is an avenue that could be explored.

Will Smith

Speaking of being unwell at a gala, no one forgot Will Smith’s slap in the face of host Chris Rock in the middle of the Oscars, right?

The new head coach of the Montreal Canadiens has seduced everyone with his thoughts on how to lead a team, to the point of forgetting the losing streak. The authors of Bye surely took note.

Julien Lacroix

Maripier Morin

For months, Maripier Morin has been multiplying intimate confessions about her drug addiction problems, her motherhood, her twisted relationship with Brandon Prust, etc. In interviews in magazines, in his podcast or that of others. It’s a lot. It’s almost a parody.

Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge

In the crosshairs last year because of his refusal to be vaccinated and his animation of Masked singersGuillaume Lemay-Thivierge earned a second impersonation on December 31 when he sparked unease by awkwardly interrupting the Gémeaux Awards Gala to settle scores.

The New King and the Queen’s Funeral

The royal family provided quality raw material for the year-end broadcasts. The queen who dies, the accession to the throne of Charles and the saga Harry and Meghan, it is abundance for the creators of the bye.

In a similar vein, Justin Trudeau and Gregory Charles created one of the funniest moments of the year with their unlikely duo at a London hotel during the Queen’s funeral.

Still on the same theme, the crusade of the leader of the Parti Québécois and his deputies to abolish the king’s oath is also worthy of mention.

It happened late in the year, but a nurse suspended for eating toast could give a sketch of our healthcare system with some teeth.


Bye Bye 2022


The head of the Catholic Church rarely visits Quebec. In the context of reconciliation with the First Nations and at a time when sex scandals continue to taint the institution, an imitation of Pope Francis is conceivable.

Elon Musk

He deserves an appearance with the storm caused by his dizzying passage at the head of Twitter…
