The Truth About Trudeau!

Please join us for this very important book launch in Ottawa!


Book Launch:  Bob Plamondon's
The Truth About Trudeau


June 3, 2013, 7:00 PM
Library & Archives Canada
395 Wellington


Admission: $20 - but all attendees will receive $20 discount on his book. So, come to our launch and buy this important book for only $15 (regularly $35).

Finally, after over 30 years of hagiographies, comes a book that sets the record straight and tells us the truth about Pierre Elliott Trudeau.

In this unprecedented and meticulously researched sweep of the record, Globe and Mail bestselling author Bob Plamondon challenges the conventional wisdom that Trudeau was a great prime minister. With new revelations, fresh insights, and in-depth analysis, Plamondon reveals that the man did not measure up to the myth.

The reality is Trudeau’s accomplishments are tarnished by the damage he inflicted on the country that haunts us to this day. On almost all major issues—national unity, the economy, government finances, the environment, poverty, immigration, national defence, international relations, poverty, foreign aid—Trudeau’s record falls well short of the mark.

Rather than embrace immigration, Trudeau slashed it. Rather than defend Canadian industry, he undermined it. Rather than draw the country together, he antagonized the west and weakened federalist leaders working on the ground for the hearts and minds of Quebecers. Rather than respect liberty, he mislead Canadians when invoking the War Measures Act. Rather than make Canada more secure, he emasculated our military and cozied up to communist dictators. And rather than build a Just Society, he racked up debt, hobbling government’s ability to care for the disadvantaged for decades to come.

Trudeau left deep divisions and scars that remain to be healed. Any progress Trudeau made on bilingualism, individual rights, and multiculturalism was dwarfed by his legacy of economic mismanagement, regional alienation and international isolation. While no one disputes Trudeau’s intelligence, toughness, charisma, and the flashes of glamour he brought Canada, in the end the pirouettes were not worth the price.

Canadians need to know their history, or risk repeating it. It is time we know the truth about Trudeau.

Ok... so that's 1 biased anti-trudeau biography, 100 biased pro-trudeau biographies... So yes, there is still a tremendous bias here that needs to be balanced :)
