MONTREAL, Aug. 28 /CNW Telbec/ - What could be better than peace and
quiet and living close to nature, which is something Marcel Bouchard knows all
about. The popular outdoors reporter from Salut, Bonjour!, who is also a
songwriter in his spare time, will be the spokesperson for the fall promotion
of the Société des bingos du Québec (SBQ), a subsidiary of Loto-Québec.
Instead of the usual network bingo jackpot, this exciting new promotion will
be offering a grand prize of an Habitaflex cottage and a Toyota FJ Cruiser
truck OR $125,000 in cash!
The general public will also have an opportunity to chat with Marcel
during a tour of nine bingo halls where he will share his passion for the
outdoors. With his guitar and infectious energy, Marcel will also stir up some
fun by singing a catchy tune especially written for the promotion. For more
