While Trudeau has positioned himself as the champion of the country’s middle class, he is unquestionably a member of the one per cent, and makes that point himself. Canadians asked Google for the bottom line.
When Pressed, he fessed up
When Trudeau was running for the Liberal leadership, his campaign disclosed to the Ottawa Citizen that his personal fortune was valued at $1.2 million.
Most of that money came in the form of an inheritance from his father, but some also came from paid speaking engagements that he gave before —and after — becoming a member of Parliament. The Trudeau boys also inherited their father’s mansion on Pine Avenue in Montreal’s Golden Mile.
The Trudeau family fortune has its origins in the 1920s, however.
Trudeau’s grandfather, Charles-Émile Trudeau, owned a chain of gas stations in the Montreal area, which became a cash cow when the automobile became a staple of North American.
Speaking of baseball, Justin Trudeau is presently standing on third base and trying to convince ordinary Canadians that he is a champion and just hit a triple. The pathetic truth is that Justin Trudeau was born at third and is still holding the golden spoon. Not bright enough to figure out that you cannot buy people with their own money. His most recent “lip-slip” about Light Rail Transit in Montreal gives pause for even more suspicion about his real agenda.
