Pierre Elliott Trudeau: Charter of Rights and Freedoms
Perhaps the defining element of Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s political legacy is the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Adding to that legacy, Trudeau also accomplished bilingualism across the country – a lasting effort that remains a defining element of Canada. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks with Trudeau biographer and former politician John English to learn more about how Trudeau strived to give Canada a sense of self with its Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and how Trudeau affected multiculturalism and bilingualism across the country.
