The assignment given to writer Merle Shain was whether being prime minister “had changed Pierre Elliott Trudeau.” Shain noted: “When his scarf disappeared from inside his coat during a February leadership speech in Toronto he dropped to his knees to look under the couch. When it didn’t appear even there, he whispered in an aside to the foot at hand, ‘You know, I think someone pinched it.’ Today, I don’t think he’d be as surprised.”
3. June 1969 interview with Pierre Elliott Trudeau
In a far-ranging interview, Helene Pilotte asked the prime minister whether he considered the female labour force important to Canada’s economy. His response: “Yes. I am convinced that our society isn’t utilizing all the intelligence and ability which the feminine half of the Canadian population possesses.”

Margaret Trudeau’s Own Pictures at Harrington Lake
10. July 1976 opening spread
In the introduction to her family photos from Harrington Lake, an official residence of Canada’s prime ministers, Margaret Trudeau wrote, “These photographs were taken the summer before our son Michel was born — the summer of ’75. They are an introduction to him of his family-to-be, and especially of his brothers, Justin and Sacha, who will always be a unique and special part of his life.”

Of the photo of Justin at top-centre, Margaret wrote, “The fishing pole was supposed to be only a prop for this picture of Justin. It was an old wooden stick pole, with a string line and a bare hook, which we found tucked away in the woods near a spot where we had been picnicking. Justin dropped it into the water unbaited for his “first fishing picture,” and within five minutes had caught a trout — much to his surprise and alarm. Too small to keep, the fish was returned to the lake alive.”
