Pierre Trudeau Net Worth, Age, Height, Bio, Birthday, and Wiki, Wife

Joseph Philippe Pierre Yves Elliott Trudeau served as the 15th Prime Minister of Canada.

Having served the position twice, he served from 1968 to 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984.

Trudeau had a short stint as the leader of the Opposition from 1979 to 1980. From 1968 to 1984, he was the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada.

Trudeau was born and raised by his parents in Montreal, Quebec. Trudeau rose to prominence in Quebec politics as a lawyer, intellectual, and activist.

Despite his affiliation with the social democratic New Democratic Party, he felt they were incapable of achieving power and instead joined the Liberal Party.

In 1965, he was elected to the House of Commons and quickly appointed parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson.

He was appointed minister of justice and attorney general in 1967.

Trudeau’s outgoing personality and charismatic nature sparked “Trudeaumania,” propelling him to the Liberal Party leadership in 1968 when he succeeded Pearson and became Prime Minister of Canada.

Trudeau’s personality dominated Canadian politics to a degree never before seen from the late 1960s to the middle of the 1980s.

Following his appointment as Prime Minister, he won elections in 1968, 1972, and 1974 before narrowly losing in 1979.

Soon after, in 1980, he won a fourth election victory, and he eventually retired from politics just before the 1984 election.
