Margaret Trudeau, the former wife of Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, has a message for Canada's political meanies: stop bullying my son.
NORTH BAY – Margaret Trudeau, speaking on mental health awareness in North Bay earlier this week said one of the strategies for her continued wellness is not getting angry.
“But someone is bullying my Justin and that makes me mad,” she said to rousing applause from the packed audience at the Capitol Centre.
Though Trudeau said she steers away from making political appearances for fear of saying the wrong thing, she couldn’t resist commenting on the recent ads on her son, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau. She called attack ads an American practice that “unfortunately works,” and said she would like to see all parties get back to debating policy not personality. “We have to get rid of bullying in politics,” Trudeau said, “ and focus on what we can do for each other.”
