Trudeau and Ignatieff.

  • Justin Trudeau s’en prend à Ignatieff
    Presse Canadienne
    Montréal

    Justin Trudeau estime que Michael Ignatieff manque de la «sagesse nécessaire» pour succéder à Paul Martin à la tête du Parti libéral du Canada (PLC).
    Dans une entrevue diffusée lundi à l'émission Dominique Poirier en direct, sur les ondes de RDI, le fils aîné du défunt premier ministre Pierre-Eliott Trudeau dresse un portrait peu flatteur de M. Ignatieff. «(..) Ignatieff, il est un peu partout, il se contredit, il n'a pas la clarté que mon père a pu avoir», déclare Justin Trudeau, qui

    In Linda Diebel's feature on Michael Ignatieff in today's Toronto Star, there was more than a passing reference to the candidate and his comparison with Trudeau. Diebel puts an end to the comparisons once and for all as she describes how the Harvard University Professor was wooed home by Ian Davey who later introduced him to senior Senator David Smith. Together the two along with Igntieff's agent Michael Levine, agreed he "...would make a great Prime Minister."

    Diebel writes: "To some extent, all political leaders are inventions, creations of their handlers" York University political economist James Laxer wrote recently on his blog. "The Ignatieff case takes this to the point of absurdity."

    This is a far cry from Trudeau's motivation and early days as a Liberal minister. On the Trudeau alliance with his partners in crime Gerard Pelletier and Jean Marchand, Lester Pearson - who in a sense recruited the men from Quebec to shore up his support there - wrote "These were the sort of men I was looking for; men of quality and standing in Quebec, men who inspired both some admiration and some fear."


    Next Face found a rather obscure reference to Ignatieff while reading Trudeau's Memoirs this summer while on vacation in Florida.

    Next to this photograph is the following caption :

    "Amid unusually comfortable surroundings at the London School of Economics I chatted with Michael Ignatieff, son of the distinguished Canadian diplomat George Ignatieff."





    It is the only Ignatieff reference in the book. Like a riddle taunting us in DaVinci Code style, Trudeau leaves us this image in his Memoirs on page 41 alongside some other obviously meaningful pictures of himself with his son Sasha and his friend Gerard Pelletier. Would Trudeau have agreed with Justin's characterization of the Liberal leadership candidate?

    What would Trudeau have made of Ignatieff's Quebec nation concept?

    What we do know is that in 1993 Pierre Trudeau wrote:
    "...I never denied the existence of the French-Canadian nation; nor do I deny the aboriginals led today by Ovid Mercredi the status of nation in the sociological sense. What I rejected well before the advent of neo-nationalism of the 1960's and reject still today is the doctrine that claims that every sociological nation must have political sovereignty and independence. If we were to promote the political independence of every sociological nation around the world, the planet would soon be torn by countless conflicts among ethnic and linguistic groups, each demanding sovereignty from the country in which it constitutes a minority."

    Wake up folks - this IS NOT about Trudeau. It's about the "Liberal Party" TODAY, not 40 years ago.

    The world has changed greatly in 40 plus years and the issues are very different.

    Pierre Trudeau is very overrated. He didn't even know that he believed in his twenties - he liked communism, then he liked facsism, and he was a CCF and then he galavanted around the world during WWII while other men were fighting against Hitler - oh ya, at that time Trudeau didn't think Hitler was a problem.

    So let's get the man of the pedestal please.

    And, while I'm here - who the hell cares waht Justin Trudeau thinks? Not I and many others. He's just enjoying is 15 minutes in the spotlight like he has all the answers - duh? Or, maybe Ben Mulroney is better known now and Justin has to get in there.

    Cut the crap about Trudeau years and the crap about what Justin thinks.

    If we loose sight of the mistakes of the past then we are destined to repeat them. The Trudeau discussion is vital to this debate. He contributed to the building of a nation and yes he has his critics, but the work he started needs to be compelted. Most agree that Iggy's approach on Quebec may not be the beast one. But sticking your head in the sand like Rae would have us do is not the best either. It is what Chretien did and it almost cost us a country.

    On the issue of Quebec and nation building every candidate has failed us as far as I am concerned; each to a different degree and for different reasons.

    Hi there!
    I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
    I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
    Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
