POUR LE MEILLEUR OU POUR LE PIRE is a talk show that illuminates our present day existence by shining the bright light of the past on it. Why and how have we changed? Are our lives better or worse today? Were we better or worse off before? Every show alternates between news reports and in-studio exchanges, guided by host Jean Provencher, between renowned Quebec personalities including actors, authors, columnists, artists, filmmakers, and ex-politicians.
