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.”

I therefore would recommend readers peruse other material out there about Trudeau alongside Plamondon's book given it's overt dislike of PET and just about all he stood for, and this comes from someone like myself who is no fan of the man either.
Other than that the book is concise and the topics clearly delineated but there is repetition of many points and the writing style is tortured, hence the reason I can't give it more than 3 stars. There are times I can't help but feel that it's akin to a senior university term paper badly in need of some editing but it's purpose is served and perhaps that's all that really matters.
Regardless of Plamondon's bias he has done Canadians a service by attempting to strip away much of the myth about this man and his legacy, none of which can necessarily be considered unifying or strengthening to Canada as a country.Read more ›
