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.
