Pierre Trudeau Just Watch Me This 1970 clip of Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau is probably unknown to Americans, but it's very famous in Canada. In October 1970, a radical French-Canadian separatist group, the FLQ, began a reign of terror in the province of Quebec. James Cross, a visiting British diplomat, was kidnapped. Shortly afterward, Pierre Laporte, a Quebec cabinet minister, was also kidnapped. (Laporte's dead body was found a few days later.) Prime minister Trudeau responded by invoking Canada's War Measures Act which gave the government extraordinary powers to preserve order. The civil libertarians didn't like it, but it was the most popular thing Trudeau ever did. Watch him as he fields questions from a left-leaning TV reporter.

Pierre Trudeau - Fuddle Duddle Love him or hate him, when Pierre Trudeau was Canada's prime minister there were few dull moments. In 1971, he was accused by political opponents of mouthing a common obscenity in parliament. Trudeau claimed he muttered 'fuddle duddle.'
