Mathieu Roy dares to ask Gino Chouinard a question: “I needed him to reassure me”

A few hours after Gino Chouinard’s last words to Salut Bonjour, we spoke with Mathieu Roy, his faithful accomplice of the last three years.

I developed a really pleasant camaraderie and complicity. I think we were good on the air, we were accomplices, we understood each other, we complemented each other. He gave me confidence in myself. »

I’ve said it often, but it’s going to be 10 years in February that I’ve been at Hi Hello, Hello Hello Weekend. And through these years – it’s like that for everyone – life still doesn’t run smoothly. When the going gets tough, for me, Salut hello is an incredible refuge. »

I was good here “, he adds, “ I forgot my concerns, my worries, my sorrows. Hi Hello, this shelter is a lot of Gino. I found comfort with this person with whom we can talk about everything. »

When asked about the most memorable moment of this emotional day, Mathieu said this: “ At one point, Sabrina and I were sitting with Gino. We had content to deliver, but the emotion was stronger than the content we had. We simply took the opportunity to speak to Gino as a friend, as a colleague. »

Gino is 10 years ahead of me,” he continues. “He has children, I have children. For me, it’s been 10 years, him, it’s been 21 years. Michel Rivard was on the show this week and I had a question that was bothering me. I asked it because I needed him to reassure me, it seems. When Michel Rivard came, he sang “The seal in Alaska” and in the song, it says: “it’s not worth leaving those you love to go and spin balloons on your nose.” I asked him: “You’ve been spinning balloons on your nose for 21 years, is it worth it?” »

I just needed him to tell me it’s worth it.

Because we miss them in the mornings with our children. There is still a cost and it is not enormous, there are plenty of people who have it in life, this schedule, but I wanted to hear the one who inspires me a lot on a professional and family level reassure me on this subject. »
