Who and what’s the net value of Justin Trudeau?
In 2015, JUSTIN Trudeau became the second youngest prime minister in Canada, and in 2019 he won a short election.
The leader was a French and mathematics teacher in Vancouver before he finally entered the leading role of PM.
Who is Trudeau, Justin?
Justin Trudeau, 47, is the leader, 23rd and current Premier, of the Liberal Party of Canada.
Born in Ottawa in 1971, he took office at age 43 in November 2015 and became the second youngest Canadian PM.
Joe Clark was the youngest to take office the day before he was 40 years old.
Justin’s father Pierre Trudeau was the successor to Clark as PM and was the third longest PM in the history of Canada between 1968 and 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984.
The actress, author and former television chat hostess, Justin’s mother, Margaret Sinclair, was separated from Pierre by the age of five.
Prior to becoming a French and Mathematics teacher, he studied for a literature degree in Vancouver.
His father Pierre Trudeau’s state funeral in 2000 gained a high profile in the public sphere.
Whilst he always supported the Liberal Party of his father, it was only eight years after his father’s death that he became fully engaged in politics.
What’s the value of his net?
It is estimated that the net value of Justin is between 10 and 13 million dollars, or between 7,2 and 9,3 million dollars, respectively.
Justin, his wife Sophie and three of their kids live in Ottawa’s 22-bedroom mansion, paid for with government money.
They chose not to live in the traditional residence of the Prime Minister – 24 Sussex Drive, which is said to require over 10 million dollars for major refurbishments.
At 24 Sussex Drive, the current PM lived when his dad – Pierre Trudeau – became Prime Minister.
What was the row of the blackface?
TIME published a photograph of the Canadian PM wearing a blackface at the West Point Grey Academy on 18 September 2019 that he previously taught at a “Arabian Nights” themed party.
The 2001 photo showed Trudeau dressed in a turban and dressed in maquillages with his face, neck and arms fully shadowed.
The controversial snap was published in a school yearbook and “was a gossip in the West Point Grey community.”
Trudeau apologized, branded it racist for the picture.
“Yes, [racist], he said. He said. At that time I thought it was not racist, but we know better now.”
He added, too, that he was with himself “p**** off.”
Trudeau also admitted that he wore blackface at secondary school to sing the African-American civil rights activist Harry Belafonte in a push to be smooth about any other inappropriate costumes in the past.
“I regret deeply that I’ve done that,” he said.
In the past, the PM was criticized for a tattoo of his left arm based largely on the art work of Robert Davidson, an indigenous artist.
After approving a natural gas facility opposed to the Haida, Davidson, a Canadian indigenous Haida people, said that Trudeau was not “truly sensitive” to the indigenous population of Canada. He said the Haida population was not “true.”
At the 2008 federal elections, he was elected representative of Papineau and the following year he became the Speaker of Youth and Multiculturalism for the Liberal Party.
He was appointed Speaker for citizenship and immigration in 2010 and Speaker for Secondary Schools, Youth and Amateur Sports in 2011.
In April 2013 he won Liberal leadership. In the 2015 federal election he won an overwhelming victory.
During a royal visit to Canada in 2016, Trudeau met Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The Canadian Prime Minister’s meeting was charmed by politicians, including Chancellor Angela Merkel.
He has been named one of the top ten “unconventional” alternatives to the most sexy man living in Vogue magazine.
After Donald Trump imposed a travel ban, he announced his country would accept refugees.
“Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith, to all fleeing persecution, terror and war. Our strength #WelcometoCanada is diversity.”
In a Twitter tirade hour prior to the G7 Summit in June 2018, Donald Trump attacked ‘indignant’ Trudeau.
After the US slapped tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, it was in a trade conflict with Canada and EU countries.
During the Canadian elections of October 2019, the Liberal Party of Trudeau retained power and lost its majority.
Who’s the wife of Justin Trudeau?
Justin Trudeau met Sophie Gregoire as a student and friend of his youngest brother Michel when they were young children who grew up in Montreal.
But they did not reconnect until 2003 when Sophie was appointed as his co-host for a ball of charity – at that point a TV personage.
It began several months later and in October 2004 it announced its commitment.
The couple had three children together – Xavier, 10, Ella Grace, nine and four-year-old Hadrien. They married a Roman Catholic ceremony in May, 2005.
