A child of Trudeau's expansive immigration policies looks at the man who changed his family's life and our collective vision of Canada.

Love him or hate him, Pierre Trudeau has marked us all. The man whose motto was "reason over passion"managed to arouse in Canadians the fiercest of passions of every hue, ones that even today cloud our view of him and of his place in history. Acclaimed novelist Nino Ricci takes as his starting point the crucial role Trudeau played in the formation of his own sense of identity to look at how Trudeau expanded us as a people, not in spite of his contradictions but because of them.

This could've been a lot better than it was. There was no logical timeline at all.

I've really been enjoying the Extraordinary Canadians series, but I didn't care much for this one. Ricci focuses more on the media phenomenon of Trudeau than I would have liked, and starts the story of his life with his first election campaign (at 40!). More like "The Story of Trudeaumania" than a biography.
