Looking For Pierre Trudeau's Famous Finger Photo

Fri Nov 10, 2006 2:11 am

I've been trying to find a photo of former Canadian PM Pierre Trudeau's famous flipping of the bird to protesters in Salmon Arm, BC. I've searched just about every conceivable way on numerous search engines, but no luck.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

If you can give me the exact date it happened I can check the Globe and Mail archive (my school has access to it) and see if there is a picture of it in there.

Will a sculpture of his finger do?

I believe it was August 21, 1982

A little bit off topic... kind of. But his son Justin Trudeau was a guest speaker at my College today.

No need to thank me for this useless information. It was my pleasure.

What did you think of him? I heard him speak a few years ago and was quite impressed- a very good public speaker. I can just imagine the upper echelons of the big red machine are just dying for the day he announces his political intentions.

I was sitting outside the theatre he did his speech in, and kept hearing clapping so I asked someone else if they knew what was going on in there, and thats when I found out. I Would have liked to go, however. But too late now.
