Justin Trudeau

Current Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau is lately surrounded by controversy regarding his handling of the over-the-road truckers’ protest that many said turned Ottawa, Canada “into a parking lot.” The Freedom Convoy, as it came to be called, was organized in protest of COVID-19 mandates.

Trudeau comes from a family of experienced politicians, including his father, who was also a Canadian Prime Minister. Trudeau is the second-youngest prime minister in the history of Canada. Because his father was also a prime minister, his election was historical in that he is the first to have ever been the son of a former minister.

Biography: Early Life and Family

Justin Trudeau was born on Christmas Day, 1971. He was the second child to be born to a Canadian Prime Minister while he was in office. In 1972, then-President Richard Nixon is quoted as saying, “I’d like to make a toast to the future Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.” As Justin was still an infant, Nixon could never know exactly how true his prediction would serve to be.

Trudeau’s parents divorced when he was only five years old, and Justin lived with his father primarily, so he truly got a first-hand experience in how to become a Canadian official.

Eventually, Pierre Trudeau would be re-elected to the position of Prime Minister. Justin and his siblings lived in the Prime Minister’s headquarters at least twice while they were growing up. The Trudeau family insisted that Justin live as normally as possible. He rode a bus to school rather than be dropped off in a limousine, and he attended a public school instead of a private, prestigious school. One of the Trudeau family favorite pastimes was camping.

Trudeau has two college level degrees. One is a bachelor of arts in literature; he obtained this at McGill University. He also has a degree from the University of British Columbia.

While at McGill, Trudeau participated in debate, and he actually debated Princeton student Ted Cruz. Trudeau would later teach French and math at a private school; he would re-enroll at McGill to study environmental geography and engineering, but he would eventually leave to campaign for public office.

Trudeau became known for speaking at his father’s funeral, which was seen on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television network. He was also starred in a documentary regarding Canada’s involvement in World War I.

Personal Life

Trudeau is married to Sophie Gregoire since 2005. The pair had known each other since they were both children, but they only began dating after Trudeau and Gregoire worked together on a charity ball. It was a fundraiser for those affected by winter sports accidents, such as the avalanche that killed Trudeau’s brother Michel.

Trudeau and his wife have three children together: Xavier was born in 2007; Ella Grace was born in 2009; Hadrien was born in 2014.

Trudeau’s parents were Catholic (his mother converted from Anglicanism before marrying Justin’s father), but Trudeau says he was a “lapsed Catholic.” However, after his brother’s untimely death, Trudeau began attending church once more and says his faith is “extremely important to him.”

Trudeau has worked a number of jobs prior to becoming the Prime Minister of Canada. He was a school teacher and a snowboard instructor. He even worked once as a bouncer!

Trudeau said during his campaign that he worked one summer as a camp counselor and earned only 900 dollars.

Trudeau has also made a great deal of his wealth while appearing a public speaking events. He disclosed that in 2006, he made $290,000 from public speaking engagements.
