You forced me to do a Yahoo! search to find out who that was. I've learned something today.

Trudeau was still the Prime Minister of Canada when I was a very young child. I remember wondering if he was the guy who cartooned "Doonesbury." (Ahh, the innocence of childhood.)
One of the things I admire the man for the most is he worked for national unity despite the reputation of a lot of politicians from Quebec. As an American from the outside this was very honorable.

RIP Mr. Trudeau

Up, up and away!

I am sorry he's gone. He was one of my favorite statesmen. He will be missed.

Being an American, I too was fairly unfamilair with Prime Minister Trudeau.

I now understand him to have been a strong, vocal leader who pressed for a united Canada. He was also the first North American statesman to recognize the Peoples Republic of China.

Thank you Prime Minister Trudeau for your service to your country.

Yes, one of Trudeau's sons, Michel, was killed in an avalanche in BC last year.

Farewell and rest in peace, Mr. Trudeau.

Yes, Canada mourns the passing of former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau. He was Prime Minister for most of the period 1968-1984. He believed in a just society. He believed in reason over passion. He believed that government had no place in the bedrooms of the nation. He believed Canada's policies should be independent of either the UK or the US. He was an individual with a vision, style and class. When a journalist asked about his divorce, Trudeau said that a gentleman doesn't answer such questions nor does a gentleman ask such questions. He appreciated Canada's outdoors and wilderness. He accepted and learned from all cultures.

His youngest son died in an avalanche a couple of years ago. The body was never recovered and lies somewhere in a lake in BC (British Columbia). Trudeau took this quite hard and was never the same after that tragic incident.

He was definately one, if not the greatest prime minister we have ever known. May her rest in peace for all eternity knowing that he made such a positive profound distance in Canada.

I encourage people to fly flags at half-mast. Our school did. We even had a moment of silence.

Rest in peace sir.
