Justin Trudeau Teacher Former Students Reveal What He Was Like In the Classroom
The Huffington Post Canada
By  Kristy Woudstra  
Posted:  10/23/2015
As Justin Trudeau prepares for his new role as Canada's prime minister, Canadians can't help but wonder what kind of job he'll do. Thanks to Reddit, we have a glimpse into his work style and how his former students in B.C. remember him.
On Wednesday, Redditor "taytoa" posted the question: "Anyone here had Justin Trudeau as their teacher and remember what he was like? He taught French and math at West Point Grey Academy and Churchill."
According to "The Contender," HuffPost Canada's ebook on Trudeau, he taught math, French, humanities and drama between 1999 and 2001 at Vancouver's elite private school West Point Grey as well as public high school Sir Winston Churchill Secondary.
In the book, author and Ottawa bureau chief Althia Raj quotes Trudeau's boss at West Point Grey, Stephen Anthony, describing Trudeau as "highly valued, spirited and enthusiastic." According to Anthony, he was liked by both staff and students.
So what do Redditors have to say? Take a look.
"He was our substitute french teacher at Churchill. Don't remember much about that time other than his classes were infinitely more interesting than with our actual french teacher. What I remember most about him was was the day 9/11 occurred. Whereas every other teacher continued their lesson as if nothing happened, he told us he wasn't going to teach french. Instead, he wanted to talk about the global ramifications from that event and had an open discussion as to how we thought and felt about the whole situation. He also reminded us not judge a group based on the actions of a few extremists." -tyltu

"I met Justin when I was in grade six where he subbed at WPGA. My first impression of him was 'here is a person who knows how to engage people and teach!' All the girls were swooning over him, even at that age (surprise, surprise). I have several stories that will hopefully represent how he was. He had interesting methods about how to discipline students, my favourite was when he once drew a moustache on a friend for not paying attention in class.
*
"The best story I can recount about him being at WPGA was when a student dared him to ride a dirt-board down the really steep hill at school. Luckily I had my camcorder, because he bailed hard half-way down and ate shit harder than anyone I've ever seen. His nice dress pants and shirt were covered in mud, we were all in stitches and couldn't believe he would actually do such a thing. I should try and find the tape with that on it." -shiSSen
*
"Yep, he taught at Pitt River middle as well. I had him as a teacher in sixth grade, on Halloween 1997. He went as a nerd." -ellefrag
*
"I have a friend who had him at WPGA. He said Trudeau was like any other teacher really. I asked him if he ever asked what it was like growing up as the son of a PM or anything, and he told me, 'of course not, you can't ask something like that.'" -zeroedout666
*
"I only had him as a sub. Really, really energetic and goofy." - RusstyC
*
"I'm pretty sure he taught one of my grade four french classes at WPGA. I don't remember much because I was like eight." -allodude
*
"I had him as a sub for grade eight at Kwayhquitlum Middle in 1998. I remember him singing the words to 'Pretty Fly.' The guys all thought he was awesome and us girls all had a mad crush on him." - anonymous
*
"He subbed at a school I used to teach at. He was friendly and the students liked him." -novasilverdangle
*
"WPGA peeps said he was eccentric and keen." -gskfjhvuhkfjghdljkvh
*
"When I was in Gr.10 at Churchill, my social studies teacher recounted her impression of Justin. She said most of the teachers were in the staff room/lounge that morning and the principal was introducing this new substitute teacher. He had unkempt hair, very casual dress and was wearing sandals. Most teachers didn't care much for another new guy and just kept talking among themselves. As soon as the principal said his last name, everyone in the room went silent." -ssnistfajen

What Pisses Me Off About Justin Trudeau and the Canadian Elections

Justin Trudeau admits that he ‘won the lottery’ with $1.2 million inheritance and successful speaking business
Glen McGregor, Ottawa Citizen
Published: February 14, 2013
Federal Liberal leadership front-runner Justin Trudeau has provided a rare disclosure of his personal finances to quell speculation about his family’s wealth and head off concerns over potential conflicts of interest.
At the request of The Ottawa Citizen, Trudeau’s campaign staff produced a valuation of the company that manages the money he inherited from his father and gave a full list of his paid speaking events in the years before he announced his run for the leadership.
The documents show that although Trudeau’s inheritance is now worth about $1.2 million, he has also built up a public-speaking business that earned him more than $450,000 in its best year.
Should he become Liberal leader, Trudeau says, he will set a new ethical standard by moving the stocks and bonds he inherited into a blind trust, a requirement currently in place for cabinet ministers, but not for most MPs.
Trudeau, 41, allows that he “won the lottery” by having a wealthy family but says there are misconceptions about the size of his estate.
“I’ve quietly grown used to people being shocked that I don’t live in a castle,” said Trudeau, who resides in a semi-detached two-storey Montreal home with a sizable mortgage.
He said he agreed to speak about his personal finances, a subject he has never discussed publicly, so that people would better understand how he chose to use his money.
“It wasn’t to go off and spend a year in St-Tropez or buy a boat and sail around the world,” he said after a campaign stop in St. Catharines, Ont., last week.
“I worked as a high school teacher and a whitewater river guide in the summer to make money. I worked as a camp counsellor earning $900 for a summer.”
Dividends from the family’s holding company were not enough to live off, Trudeau says, but the money did allow him to travel, study and take lower paying jobs before he became a professional public speaker and, later, an MP.
Trudeau says his father had hoped the family money would allow him and his brother to pursue their interests — his in education and now politics, brother Alexandre (“Sacha”) in filmmaking and journalism — without having to take the well-trod path of Montreal well-to-do into law or business.
“Whatever we wanted to do, we had enough to live a modest but decent life. And that was incredibly lucky.”
The Trudeau family wealth originates with Justin’s grandfather, Charles-Émile Trudeau, who made his fortune in Montreal gas stations in the early part of the 20th century. He rolled his money into real estate, carrying the family through the Depression, and also owned part of Montreal’s Belmont amusement park and the Montreal Royals baseball team.
Charles-Émile Trudeau died suddenly in his early 40s of a heart attack, which his wife, Grace, blamed on the drinking and cigar-smoking lifestyle of businessmen of the day.
Pierre Trudeau, age 15 at the time, was devastated by his father’s death. Combined with his mother’s Scottish temperance, it forever coloured his own attitude to money, his son says. He didn’t smoke, rarely drank more than wine and developed a reputation for tight-fistedness.
“He was very careful about it,” Trudeau said. “He was notorious for under-tipping in restaurants.”
Pierre Trudeau inherited a share of his father’s money, split with his own siblings. Later in life, he prepared to portion it out to his sons.
The boys were given shares in 90562 Canada Inc., the federal corporation that held Trudeau’s portfolio of securities, managed by Montreal investment firm Jarislowsky Fraser.
The succession plans were set up to transfer the company’s assets to the Trudeau sons over time, to guard against the possibility the money would vanish in a spending binge in their wild 20s. This scheduled transfer concludes only when Justin reaches age 45 in 2016.
As they came of age, the heirs received regular dividends from the company — Justin’s topped out at about $20,000 annually — to supplement their incomes.
Aided by this stipend, Justin backpacked around Europe after high school and later travelled through Africa, then went to teachers’ college. His undergraduate studies at McGill University were funded, in part, by the Canada Savings Bonds his father had bought every year at Christmas.
After school, Trudeau ended up in Whistler Village, B.C., teaching snowboarding and putting his martial arts and boxing training to work as a doorman at the Rogue Wolf nightclub.
In Whistler, he slept on a friend’s sofa and drove a beat-up used Mercedes with holes in the floor.
“There was no thought of going off to be a ski bum. I knew I had to go off and work … But I didn’t have to worry about what my salary was.”
As he became serious about a career, the family money backstopped him when he took a job teaching in Vancouver, supplementing his salary of about $44,000.
His first grown-up car followed — a modest Volkswagen Jetta — but he continued to share a home with roommates for a time. When he decided to return to Montreal to study engineering, the earnings from the estate helped him.
Starting in 2006, Trudeau tapped into a vocation that became far more lucrative than teaching: paid speaking. His family name and advocacy for youth issues put him in demand, and he signed up with Speaker’s Spotlight bureau.
The arrangement proved highly profitable. Trudeau earned $290,000 from speaking events in 2006, according to documents voluntarily provided by his campaign. His first events were booked at $5,000 each, but his fee quickly rose with the demand.
In 2007, with some clients paying $15,000 for an event, Trudeau earned $462,000 on the speaking circuit.
In addition to his fee, Trudeau received business-class plane tickets, according to his standard speaking contract. The only special demands required of the host were non-bottled water, a stool, two microphones and a room at the venue to prepare.
With this large salary rolling in, Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire, sold their Montreal condo and bought a $1.2-million home in Outremont, with plans to start a family. Grégoire became pregnant with their first child almost immediately.
The speaking work tailed off in 2008 when Trudeau ran for the Liberals.
With Justin earning a lower income as an MP, and Grégoire staying home with their growing family, the Trudeaus decided to downsize rather than draw down on his inheritance.
In 2010, they sold the Outremont house for $1.6 million and bought a smaller, semi-detached home near Mount Royal for $777,000, with a $622,000 mortgage.
With the approval of the federal ethics commissioner, Trudeau continued to take on occasional paid speaking jobs while sitting as an MP, though far fewer of them. In 2012, he earned $72,000 for four speaking events. Now that he is seeking the Liberal leadership, Trudeau has discontinued this work.
Over the years, there were adjustments to the inheritance scheme, to account for the death of youngest son Michel in an avalanche in 1998, and in the early 1990s, the birth of Sarah, Pierre Trudeau’s daughter with constitutional lawyer Deborah Coyne, who is also running for the Liberal leadership.
In 2010, the holdings in Pierre Trudeau’s original numbered company were “butterflied” and split into separate companies.
Justin’s company, had assets worth $1,242,522 as of August 2011, according to a statement prepared by accounting firm BDO.
Of this amount, $958,154 was held in short-term investments and $255,455 in cash.
The Trudeaus are also beneficiaries of another numbered company that receives royalties from their father’s autobiography and other sources — about $10,000 a year, Trudeau estimates.
Trudeau says while he is aware of the approximate value of his holdings, he pays no attention to which stocks he owns through the company.
He says part of his portfolio is likely invested in oilsands companies but he isn’t certain. It’s just as well he doesn’t know, he says, so he can comment on issues such as the sale of Nexen Inc. or the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline without concern he is acting in his own interest.
Also part of the Trudeau estate are a summer place on a lake near Morin Heights and the family’s distinctive art deco home on Pine Ave. that is now occupied by Sacha and his family. Justin got to keep the Mercedes-Benz convertible his father famously drove on Parliament Hill in the late 1960s.
“For me there are only two things that actually remind me of my childhood with my father that were permanent — one was that car and the other is the lake up north.”
Trudeau stores the Mercedes at a Montreal car dealership. He takes it out for drives in the summer sometimes, but even if he wins the leadership or the larger prize of reclaiming 24 Sussex Dr., he won’t be doing a victory lap on the Hill.
“That was my dad’s thing. I’m a different person. I don’t wear roses, either.
If Trudeau wins the leadership and takes the Liberals into the 2015 federal election, he knows his comparative wealth could become an issue.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has built his political persona by targeting the middle class, with tax credits for pee-wee hockey or gymnastics and allusions to Tim Hortons.
Trudeau knows he can make no such claim.
“I’m not middle class. I don’t pretend I am,” he said.
Trudeau said he was confronted with questions about his wealth when he first ran in Papineau, one of Quebec’s most economically disadvantaged ridings.
He said he realized he could use the education and experience his family money afforded him in the service of people in his riding.
“I realized I couldn’t feel guilty about what I had. I just had to do right with what I had.”

Is Justin Trudeau a Product of Illuminati Mind Control?
(henrymakow.com)
April 18, 2015
Justin Trudeau, the leader of the Liberal party of Canada, could become Prime Minister after the next general election in October.
Our political leaders all belong to the Illuminati satanic cult that sexually exploit and trauma brainwash their children.
At his father's funeral, Justin Trudeau seems to allude to MK-Ultra pedophilia and mind control in his eulogy.
COMMON GROUND by Justin Trudeau
Reviewed by Ann Diamond
Justin Trudeau's autobiography "Common Ground" was not easy to review. Its unspoken subtext involves abuse due to the Illuminati/Luciferian background of both sides of his family.
In her book TRANCE-FORMATION OF AMERICA MK-ULTRA survivor Cathy O'Brien stated that many world leaders, including Pierre Trudeau and Brian Mulroney, are pedophiles. She met them in the course of her life as a sex slave trained (with her young daughter) to service high-profile politicians. Other sources support Cathy O'Brien's allegations.
Over the years, insiders have told me that Pierre's 1968 marriage to Margaret was "arranged" by the military. The couple programmed with LSD at a remote farm in British Columbia.
According to Trudeau's Jesuit mentor, Trudeau ordered the kidnap and murder of his enemy Pierre Laporte in October 1970, because Laporte was threatening him with blackmail and exposure as a pedophile.
After Margaret ran off with the Rolling Stones in 1977, the marriage was over. Soon after, as a single father, Pierre turned to a York University sociologist, John Seeley, for parental advice.
John Seeley, a self-proclaimed 'sadist and pedophile' would fly up to Ottawa on weekends to "advise" Pierre on how he should be raising his three sons. Justin was six. (See also this article.)
Quite a childhood. First the trauma of being separated from the mother he adored, then frequent exposure to his father's unsavory friends.
*******

Justin Trudeau's eulogy  
*******
Children often idealize their abusive parents. During his eulogy at Pierre's funeral, a smiling 28-year-old Justin seemed dissociated, almost giddy. He began the eulogy with a weird story about a trip he took at age six, with his father and grandfather "to the North Pole," to a "military installation" at Alert NWT.
There the awe-struck boy discovered Santa Claus and "that's when I understood just how powerful and wonderful my father was."
Carolyn Hamlett, a victim of Illuminati mind control and pedophilia, said these abuses took place at  military installations.
Is Justin referring to MK-Ultra brainwashing? In general, the eulogy rings insincere and hollow.  There is no trace of love or grief. His father had little time for his children.
A few years ago, I was shown a 1984 letter signed by Pierre Elliot Trudeau expressing enthusiastic interest in meeting a ten-year-old boy. The letter may have been used in a blackmail attempt by the boy's father.
If Pierre Trudeau was abusing their children, Margaret's history of bipolar illness takes on a whole different cast.
POIGNANT PR
Common Ground is all about the heir to the Trudeau throne.
The book is persuasive and well put together, probably with help from a seasoned journalist. It flows like slick PR, but has much unhealed trauma in the margins. Posing as saviours, Trudeaus and Sinclairs may be well-paid agents of national decline, but their story is emblematic and unavoidable.
Here and there, a reader encounters tragedy almost worthy of a Russian novel. Certain passages actually moved me to tears: his parents' divorce and the loss of his brother. His love for his mother, who skidded into depression while partying with rock stars and royals.
As for the politics - you're not really interested in Liberal rhetoric, are you? Young Trudeau manfully appeals to Liberal platitudes: tolerance, openness to cultural differences, gender equality, all of which sound good after the Harper decade.
There are odd references suggesting the author has rubbed shoulders with elite perverts. Prince Andrew and the Starlight Foundation. Jacques Hebert and Katimavik. West Point Grey Academy and his mate Christopher Ingvaldson, convicted of possessing child porn.
All in all, Justin's very likeable, although Post Traumatic Stress glimmers from his eyes. In Common Ground, he reminds us that everyone has a story to tell.  Justin could have flown away like Le Petit Prince, but instead is doing his utmost to move back to the scene of his childhood trauma: the cold, drafty mausoleum called "24 Sussex Drive."

Margaret Trudeau "Ex-Wife of Former Canadian Prime Minister"  
*******
Margaret Trudeau  the great unbalancing act
Hamilton Spectator
By Jeff Mahoney
Nov 25, 2010
Over the course of the amazing, ongoing adventure that is her life so far, Margaret Trudeau has slept in psych wards and on Sussex Drive, danced with rock stars in Studio 54 and stood frozen at the funeral of her son. She has dined with kings in castles and cried with paupers at AA meetings in Ottawa.
It has been a story of trying to find some semblance of balance in a biography that has been characterized by extreme imbalance — between her own and her husband’s ages and dispositions; between the world’s expectations of her as a prime minister’s wife and the call of her own wild, vivacious heart, with its appetite for fun and marijuana; and most severely, between her episodes of mania and her bouts of depression as a woman flung from top to bottom by bipolar disorder.
Trudeau, looking fit, energetic and fetchingly elegant in a trim knee-length black dress and scarlet jacket, spun her fairy-tale-in-reverse, with hopeful second act, before a sold-out crowd at St. Paul’s United Church last night — chairs had to be set in the aisles. She spoke effortlessly, compellingly, without notes — and no one stirred. They hung on every word, and there was so much to hang on.
Where to start? Living with Pierre Elliott Trudeau? “I lived in the crown jewel of the federal penitentiary system,” she said drolly. “24 Sussex Drive.”
They met on a holiday when she was 19 and he was 48. “I had my eye on the water ski instructor ... but he was hauling around this old guy (Trudeau).”
She said she was “picked.” He made up his mind he wanted her on that holiday. He called her mother to ask her out. At first her mother said no, but he persisted.
“We were very happy, but I wasn’t prepared to be the prime minister’s wife. I wanted to be Pierre’s wife and have his children.” But after their honeymoon, she said, he told her basically that the party was over; he had a country to run.
It was after the birth of her second child that she realized something was terribly wrong. She sank into a severe depression. Her husband found a psychiatrist for her. “He patted me on the head and said it was the ‘baby blues.’”
The depression lifted when she joined her husband on the campaign trail in 1974. “It was a terribly successful campaign and I was a big part of it and I knew it and I felt full of power, but then it was over.”
It has been a typical pattern in her life, depression contrasting with fits of mania in which she feels almost superhuman, highly sexualized and amazingly vigorous. She called it the most “destructive” phase of the disorder because, during mania, one loses all sense of limitation and reality.
Unable to sustain the fiction of her life as the prime minister’s wife, Trudeau left her husband in the late ’70s to live in New York City for a time. When she came back to 24 Sussex she lived in the attic.
The Trudeaus ultimately split and she found some balance with a second husband, two more children, and a prescription of lithium. But she put on weight, lost it again when she started hosting a morning television show, and then came crashing down again after a miscarriage.
She battled for some kind of balance throughout, going on and off Prozac and other drugs. And then, in 1998, her son Michel died. Two years later, Pierre Trudeau died. During this period, Margaret fell into the worst crisis of her life, finding herself in and out of emergency rooms and psych wards and coming out of it only with the intervention of friends, a very good doctor and years of cognitive behaviour therapy and AA, in one of Ottawa’s most down and out areas.
She realized at one point late in this process that she hadn’t properly grieved the loss of her son. With the help of a woman at an aboriginal health centre, she came to acceptance.
“I managed to get my Michel out of me, soaring into the sky and he was free and I was free and I could love him. It was a natural, beautiful way of letting go.”
Trudeau spent the last part of her evening in Dundas signing copies of her new book, Changing My Mind.
Potter Donn Zver, who introduced Trudeau and was one of the organizers of the event, said they could easily have sold 1,000 tickets had there been room in the church.
The money raised goes to support Dundas’s Carnegie Gallery, which is celebrating its 100th year as a building and 30th year as an art gallery.
