The best memes of 2022

The year 2022, the first of the post-emergency health measures era, was filled with moments that marked the imagination of Quebecers. And who says memorable moments says memorable memes! Small summary of the best memes on the news of 2022.

The international scandal of January

The year 2022 began with an aviator and alcoholic saga that we will not soon forget, that of the influencers who got stuck in Mexico after having a party vapeand vodka on the plane that took them there. Videos where these cultural leaders can be seen flouting health measures have gone so viral that authorities have blocked their access to re-enter by air to prevent the gaffe from happening again. Here, it’s a video meme by Arnaud Soly that wins.

The February convoy

Having ended in February, the famous freedom convoy that monopolized Ottawa to express dissatisfaction with sanitary measures has made headlines in several countries around the world. The subject was on everyone's lips in February. The Fruiter Facebook page made the best meme on the subject.

The March Thaw

It may not be the fall of the Berlin Wall, but it’s still the end of an era that Quebec experienced in March. Yes, it’s when the health emergency measures were lifted, in particular the obligation of the vaccination passport to access many public places. After long months of weaning, this new, immediate access to our favorite social activities required a slight rehabilitation for some. On the subject, it’s the desmemegais page that wins the medal.

April without CH

April ended the Montreal Canadiens' worst season since the Second World War. Indeed, the last time the Habs finished last in the league was in the 1939-40 season. The habs.nhl.memes page wins here by illustrating the pain of having to resign yourself so soon to wishing another team a win, if you don’t completely abstain from listening to hockey.

Waiting for May

Ah, May! the month of buds and endless queues to renew your passport. Throughout the month, each day was eternal for the street campers who had to wait several hours, even several days, to receive this piece of paper allowing them to leave the country. The award for best meme on this hot topic goes to Narcity.

The June Drag

We imagine that people were bored in June, because it was a colorful and literary summer crisis that caused the most ink to flow in the Montreal media. We are indeed talking about the saga initiated by Barbada, the famous Drag Queen, who aroused the discontent of certain citizens and columnists when she had to go and read books to children at the Dorval library. Kudos to lactumemes for their meme about the paranoia associated with it!

A mixed July

Pope Francis was visiting Quebec in July to apologize to First Nations for the harm they suffered, including in residential schools. Let us remember that the apologies were made on behalf of certain members of the Church and not on behalf of the Catholic Church as an institution, as many Aboriginal people claimed. Lactumeme wins, for the second time in a row, with a meme from Quebec folklore.

August without pride

What shook the metropolis in August was the surprise cancellation of the traditional Pride Parade. The organization of the event, where the 2SLGBTQIA+ community usually asserts its identity loud and clear in the streets of Montreal, made the heartbreaking announcement no more than a few hours before the parade took place due to a lack of personal. While everyone in attendance was probably putting on their finest attire, the last-minute cancellation caused a stir. It's desmemesgais who wins the trophy for best meme on this subject.

The success of September

September is the month of the provincial election campaign. If there is a mystery as to which party would form the official opposition, all the polls predicted a landslide and historic victory for the Coalition Avenir QuĂ©bec (CAQ) of François Legault. During the election night, his victory was imposed only ten minutes after the start of the vote count. The Complex and Nuanced Political Analyzes Facebook page made the meme that best illustrates this momentous campaign by affixing Mr. Legault’s face to a screenshot of a video of François Lambert bragging about the great lands he owns.

An October Crisis

A nationwide television tragedy marks October 2022. The story begins with viewers shocked that contestants on the show Occupation Double allegedly bullied another contestant on the show. Popular discontent was directed against the production of OD, the people of Quebec judging that the images of intimidation should not have been broadcast. The scandal evolved to such an extent that sponsors of the show began to abandon it, raising doubts about the future of the show. We may not be talking about the October crisis number two, but almost. Kudos to Fruiter who perfectly lifts OD’s production’s perceived indifference to bullying imagery, until it’s a bit too late.

The great departure of November

As in March, November marks the end of an era. This time, it’s the daily presence on our televisions of Quebec’s favorite morning host, Gino Chouinard, whose departure was announced at the end of the month. While hosting Salut Bonjour live every weekday from 4 a.m. for 20 years, Gino is appreciated for his constant dedication and kindness. Good luck with your new projects, Gino! In the meantime, Fruiter is stepping up, with this excellent meme, to find someone to fill Gino Chouinard’s big shoes. This is the winner meme of November.

December inconsistencies

Montreal’s year 2022 concluded with the fifteenth conference of the parties (COP15). The event bringing together diplomats from several countries responsible for finding solutions to save biodiversity was held in solemn calm… Except for the tens of thousands of student strikes and demonstrations exposing the hypocrisy of Canada hosting the conference while building pipelines. The best meme once again goes to lactumemes thanks to this meme denouncing certain inconsistencies of the government, and more specifically of the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Steven Guilbeault. It’s with a hat trick that lactumemes closes this memetic retrospective of the news of the year 2022.
