"A Remarkable Personality Has Been Revealed"

Pierre Elliott Trudeau died on September 28, 2000 and much is justifiably being made over his repatriation of the Constitution, without the consent of one province – Quebec. In my view this was an error, being the ideological crutch on which Quebec separatists still lean today and a source of their continual antipathy towards his memory.

"Une personnalité remarquable se révèle"

Pierre Elliott Trudeau est décédé il y a six ans en 2000 et beaucoup a été dit – à juste titre – sur sa grande réalisation, le rapatriement de la Constitution, effectué toutefois sans le consentement d’une province – le Québec. Selon moi, ce fut une erreur qui demeure jusqu’à ce jour la béquille idéologique sur laquelle s’appuyent les séparatistes québécois pour justifier leur antipathie envers la mémoire de Trudeau.

The Charter 25 Years Ago

The McGill Institute for the Study of Canada set a new high standard for all conferences (serious or otherwise) when it packed the Omni Hotel Conference Centre in Montreal last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to discuss the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms of 1982 at the “Charter @ 25” Conference.

How to Nominate a Candidate for PM Without Really Trying

In 1968, Lester Pearson announced that he would resign as Prime Minister of Canada and also as head of the Liberal Party of Canada. The campaign for leader of the Party began at once and in earnest, because the winner would automatically become Prime Minister. There were a number of cabinet ministers with justified high hopes, including Paul Martin Sr., Paul Hellyer, Robert Winters, Mitchell Sharpe, and Maurice Sauvé as well as Eric Kierans of the Quebec Legislative Assembly. Pierre Elliott Trudeau was also considered but was way down the list.

Comment mettre en candidature un éventuel premier Ministre sans vraiment essayer

En 1968, Lester Pearson a annoncé qu’il démissionnerait du poste de premier Ministre du Canada et de celui de Chef du Parti Libéral du Canada. La course à la chefferie commença en grande et sans délai, le vainqueur devant automatiquement accéder au poste de premier ministre du Canada. Plusieurs ministres du cabinet avaient, avec raison, de bon espoirs: Paul Martin père, Paul Hellyer, Robert Winters, Mitchell Sharpe et Maurice Sauvé, mais aussi Eric Kierans de l’Assemblée législative du Québec.
