This collection explores the legacy of Pierre Elliott Trudeau, with several major works from the NFB. Both a visionary and an idealist, Trudeau changed the face of 20th century Canada, and his influence is still being felt today. He's a key figure in Quebec and Canadian history, an inspiration for several generations. Trudeau came onto the scene in tumultuous times that saw many revolutionary changes, such as the legalization of divorce, the decriminalization of abortion and homosexuality, the abolishment of the death penalty and, of course, the October Crisis. The indelible mark he made on society is still in evidence today - perhaps even more so since his son, Justin Trudeau, was elected the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada. With a vision to make the world a better place through justice and democracy, Pierre Elliott Trudeau championed multiculturalism, a principle that had a profound impact on Canadian society.
