“During my journalistic career, I met Pierre Bruno on the field, and although we were not from the same network, and of course competitors, he was always a gentleman, as the former journalist stated on Radio Canada. On his stage, it is the open man who asks intelligent questions. He wants to be understood. He has never indulged in complacency.”
Vincent Marisal of Quebec Solidere described Pierre Bruno as a “symbol” of the development of professionalism in journalism in Quebec. “Tele Metropole, and then TVA, gave her nobles’ letters.”
Finally, Joël Arseneau, of Parti Québécois, praised his rich career.

Pierre Bruno undoubtedly possesses all these qualities, all these talents.”
