Product Description

Review

DAVID FRUM:  “Finally. No more apologetics, no more myth-making. Here's the real Trudeau and the real record, carefully researched and masterfully told. It's a story that Canada must never forget and never excuse.” LAWRENCE MARTIN: “Plamondon has gone boldly where no Trudeau biographer has gone before. This is not a quickie hatchet job, but a well-reasoned critique.” DEREK BURNEY: “Dissecting reality from mythology, Plamondon provides a compelling assessment of Canada's 15th Prime Minister, one that contrasts sharply with the hagiographies on record.”

About the Author

Bob Plamondon is one of Canada’s leading political commentators and public policy experts.  He is the author of three critically acclaimed bestsellers: Blue Thunder: The Truth about Conservatives from Macdonald to Harper; Full Circle: Death and Resurrection in Canadian Conservative Politics; and Hay West: A Story of Canadians Helping Canadians.

A very objective look at the life and career about Pierre Elliott Trudeau, giving Trudeau credit where credit is due, describing his personal toughness, and blasting him where he is incorrect. At one point in the book, Trudeau is described as a "contrarion," taking the opposite point-of-view because of his non-concillatory nature except when it was Trudeau's platform or idea. From my analysis, Trudeau's poor economic policies led Canada on a road to ruin. He openly insulted world leaders, and I don't think a person who mocks the Allied efforts to rid Europe of the Nazi scourge by riding around the backroads of Quebec during the war with a Nazi swastika on his back and a German helmet on his head should ever become prime minister of Canada. A necessary analysis to cut through the "Trudeau Myth"!

The author has made very sincere attempt at criticizing every single effort made by Pierre Trudeau during his tenure as Prime Minister.But after reading this book,i admire Pierre Trudeau more than before.I did not find the criticism offending.I feel sometimes the author is not neutral in his attitude but rather against Pierre Trudeau.It is a good book.

Canadians have been for too long browbeaten into submission by those who would have you believe that Pierre Trudeau was the greatest PM in Canadian history. This book, in a meticulously detailed account of his history and policies bury that myth once and for all. This is an ideal gift for all those parents who wake up and go to sleep with the CBC. It is time to accept the truth about this man. He had an ego the size of this great country, no idea how economics work and a policy agenda that could have been written in the Kremlin.

Format: Hardcover
Finally some light is being shone on the reality of this near-mythological figure and his true legacy to our country.

Rather than a man who "saved" or "built" the country, he almost destroyed it, and we are still recovering from his disastrous reign.

He was arrogant, openly dishonest and a raging egomaniac.

Canada will be dealing with what he did to our country and finally we have a current source to turn to to help explain the realities of what he REALLY did to our nation

Well researched, this book finally tells it all, with facts and figures to back it up. Should be required reading for political science and economic students who may think socialism works, under any guise. It never does.

Format: Hardcover
The myth of Trudeau is one of the most dangerous fables in Canada. Trudeau alienated the West and Quebec. Moreover, he almost ruined our economy and put Canada into a deep hole of debt. It's taken us a generation to climb out of it. And yet, Trudeau is still lauded in the press as a great Prime Minister. He's so revered that his son, Justin, won the leadership of the Liberal party on the strength of his last name alone. Plamondon does a great service and exposes Trudeau's terrible leadership. Hopefully this reminds Canadians that we don't need another Trudeau in the 21st century.
