, Sunday, March SI, 1968 Articulate Intellect nut Bilingual Trudeau Could Aid Canada North American Newspaper Alliance OTTAWA-The United States isn't the only country on the continent where a fresh face is being seen on the political hustings. Canada's justice minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, is an articular intellectual on the order of America's Sen. Eugene McCarthy. He has exceptional flair and style and is offering the public an alternative view of a unified Canada. At 46, the federal justice minister is handsome in an unconventional way, has a dry wit and polished speech. He's also a devout Roman Catholic. Trudeau is campaigning for the Liberal Party leadership, which will be decided here in convention April 4. Prime Minister Lester Pearson will retire at that time, and candidate Trudeau, his potential successor, is appealing to the public over the heads of the existing political machine. Trudeau's chief enemies, ironically, are his own French-Canadians. He is quite unloved by his compatriots in Quebec, who complain that he is not a true Quebecois. Leader of this opposition is Quebec's Premier Daniel Johnson, who regards Trudeau's vision of a United Canada under a "two-nation" complex as a danger to Quebec and a threat to his party's demands for a "special status" for the province. A Scottish mother and a French Canadian father—the two founding peoples of Canada—make Trudeau an "all- Canadian candidate" and are important political credentials in a nation that is a third French. His broad educational background includes Harvard, the London School of Economics, the University of Paris and later a professorship at the University of Montreal. Like many intellectuals, Trudeau does not suffer fools gladly, and even some admirers consider him arrogant. His off-hand remarks about "the little people of Quebec" who don't speak French properly" do not win him votes in the boondocks. He neither smokes nor d r i n K s, is independently wealthy but tries to conceal it. Although his bachelorhood is considered a drawback on the broad political scene, his dashing "go-go" appearance and his liberalism appeal to youth. Not to Quebec's young separatists, though, for whom Trudeau is the arch-enemy. In 1964 he called the Quebec Libre movement "counterrevolutionary" and wrote "the truth is that the separatist movement is the work of a powerless little bourgeois ml- nority afraid of being left behind by the 20th-century revolution." This puts Trudeau on record as a man who could help keep Canada united. Because of Quebec, and Quebec alone, Ottawa believes that a French Canadian at the head of the country is the only answer. for that Easter parade, a coif for the women who has quiet femininity . . . masterfully executed by our expert staff of hairdressers and stylists . . . you can be exclusive in your hair design by making your appointment with us.
