Sylvie Payette on Gen Jones:
Sylvie strongly identifies as a member of Gen Jones, and she has often challenged social media posts which don’t include Gen Jones; for example, in August 2022, she responded to a generation chart which excluded Gen Jones by writing: “Moi je suis génération Jones… Je sais pas trop où me situer.” [TRANSLATION: I’m generation Jones… I’m not sure where to stand.]
