UWinnipeg’s Political Science Professor Dr. Allen Mills launches his new book Citizen Trudeau, 1944-1965:  An Intellectual Biography on Saturday, March 12 at 7:00 p.m., at McNally Robinson Books, Grant Park. This event is free and open to all.

“Trudeau defines Canada today,” shared Mills. “This book explains how his conception of Canada emerged.”

Mills’ biography paints a multilayered portrait of Trudeau by exploring the ideas of one of Canada’s greatest Prime Ministers.  Trudeau was a man of deep intellect, of strongly held philosophy, and of bold – if not occasionally audacious – personality.
