Trudeau: son of Quebec, father of Canada
400 Years of French Presence in Ontario - Lecture

On Wednesday, April 13,Monique and Max Nemni invite you at l’Alliance française de Toronto for a talk on Pierre Elliott Trudeau. At 7 pm, in the Spadina Theatre. Free admission.

Pierre Elliott Trudeau left an indelible – albeit controversial – mark in the history of Canada. He is still greatly admired by some, loathed by others. Many myths surround him. For example, he is said to have sprung out of nowhere onto the federal political scene. He is also supposed to have long suffered from an identity problem. This would explain his obsessive fight against nationalism and in favour of individual rights. The list of myths could easily be extended.

Max and Monique will try to separate facts from fiction. Their arguments will be based on Trudeau’s private papers to which they had a privileged access for their research for volumes 1 and 2 of "Trudeau, son of Quebec, father of Canada".

The lecture will be given in French.
