Joseph Philippe Pierre Yves Elliott Trudeau PC CC CH QC FRSC foi um político canadense que serviu como Primeiro-ministro do Canadá em duas ocasiões diferentes, primeiro de 1968 a 1979 e depois entre 1980 e 1984.

Trudeau é considerado uma figura carismática que entre o fim da década de 1960 até meados da década de 1980 dominou a cena política canadense. Trudeau governou o país por quinze anos, mais do que qualquer outro primeiro-ministro com exceção de William Lyon Mackenzie King.Seu governo foi marcado por avanços sociais e institucionais, com uma política econômica voltada com a esquerda. Em 1970, lidou com uma crise interna a respeito da situação da província de Quebec e preservou a unidade nacional, ajudando a forjar, dentro de uma sociedade multi-cultural, um sentimento pan-canadense mais forte. Instituiu várias reformas, como a implementação do bilinguismo oficial no Canadá . Também firmou o patriamento da constituição nacional e estabeleceu a Carta Canadense dos Direitos e das Liberdades. Foi criticado por ser considerado arrogante e por não lidar tão bem com as questões econômicas, além de centralizar o mecanismo de decisões políticas canadense, em detrimento da soberania de Quebec e da região das pradarias.Sua popularidade durante seu governo foi razoável, com o público tendo uma opinião mista e polarizada a respeito de suas conquistas no cargo. Contudo, acadêmicos o listam como um dos melhores primeiros-ministros da história do país, sendo chamado várias vezes como o "Pai do moderno Canadá".Seu filho mais velho, Justin Trudeau, que seguiu seus passos na carreira política, se tornou, em 2015, o 23º primeiro-ministro do Canadá.

Citações Pierre Elliott Trudeau

„Bilingualism is not an imposition on the citizens.“

— Pierre Trudeau

Bilingualism is an imposition on the state and not the citizens.

„What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other.“

— Pierre Trudeau
Context: What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other. Travel a thousand miles by train and you are a brute; pedal five hundred on a bicycle and you remain basically a bourgeois; paddle a hundred in a canoe and you are already a child of nature.

„The Jesuits were good educators, exceptional teachers.“

— Pierre Trudeau

„A society which emphasizes uniformity is one which creates intolerance and hate.“

„A country is something that is built every day out of certain basic shared values.“

— Pierre Trudeau

— Pierre Trudeau
Context: Some things I never learned to like. I didn't like to kiss babies, though I didn't mind kissing their mothers. I didn't like to slap backs or other parts of the anatomy. I liked hecklers, because they brought my speeches alive. I liked supporters, because they looked happy. And I really enjoyed mingling with people, if there wasn't too much of it. Part 3, 1974 - 1979 Victory And Defeat, p. 178

„The attainment of a just society is the cherished hope of civilized men.“

— Pierre Trudeau
Context: The attainment of a just society is the cherished hope of civilized men. While perhaps more difficult to formulate for groups than for individuals, even the members of majorities — political, religious, linguistic or economic — must know what it is to suffer injustice. My Government is deeply concerned to provide and to ensure increased justice, dignity and recognition to the individual, particularly in an age which is characterized by large governments, industrial automation, social regimentation and old-fashioned laws. A great deal has been accomplished in recent years to make the Canadian society more just in terms of income distribution and security against the vicissitudes of life. Speech from the Throne, House of Commons (12 September 1968)

„We must now establish the basic principles, the basic values and beliefs which hold us together as Canadians so that beyond our regional loyalties there is a way of life and a system of values which make us proud of the country that has given us such freedom and such immeasurable joy."“

— Pierre Trudeau
Context: We must now establish the basic principles, the basic values and beliefs which hold us together as Canadians so that beyond our regional loyalties there is a way of life and a system of values which make us proud of the country that has given us such freedom and such immeasurable joy. This quote from 1981 appears on the poster of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1981)

„I had been struck by the amateurism that reigned in the upper echelons of the federal government.“

„There's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.“

— Pierre Trudeau
L'État n'a pas d'affaires dans les chambres à coucher de la nation. Comment in the Canadian House of Commons on the decriminalization of homosexuality (22 December 1967) Although usually attributed solely to Trudeau, the quote is a paraphrase by him from an editorial that appeared in the Globe and Mail on December 12, 1967 (page 61) which read in part: "Obviously, the state's responsibility should be to legislate rules for a well-ordered society. It has no right or duty to creep into the bedrooms of the nation."
