Joseph Philippe Pierre Yves Elliott Trudeau , usualmente conocido como Pierre Trudeau o Pierre Elliott Trudeau, fue un político canadiense, 15.° primer ministro de Canadá. Ejerció el cargo entre 1968 y 1979, fue reelegido en 1980 y en 1984 renunció a su cargo. Trudeau lideró la idea de una nación unida por un Gobierno central fuerte con el francés y el inglés como lenguas oficiales. Está considerado como el refundador del Canadá moderno que asumió el federalismo, el bilingüismo y el multiculturalismo como señas de identidad.[1]​ Incluso sus adversarios políticos reconocieron una profunda admiración por su figura.[2]​ Como escritor publicó su primer libro en 1956. Fue despedido en un multitudinario funeral al que asistieron personalidades de relevancia mundial. El Aeropuerto Internacional de Dorval se rebautizó con su nombre en su honor el 1 de enero de 2004.

„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 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)

— 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."
