Nino Ricci Synopsis: Pierre Elliot Trudeau by Nino Ricci is part of the Extraordinary Canadians non-fiction series. Whether you liked him or not, Pierre Elliot Trudeau left his mark on all Canadians. Ricci writes about the crucial role Trudeau played in the formation of Ricci’s own sense of identity in order to examine how he expanded us as a people, not in spite of his contradictions but because of them. Downplaying the perpetual rebel image that Trudeau crafted, Ricci reconstructs the charismatic prime minister as an almost Zelig-like figure. If his beliefs changed over the years – from separatist to federalist, from fascist to liberal, from civil rights champion to military strongman – Trudeau always went with his convictions.
