Justin Trudeau to publish ‘candid’ memoir in English, French

The federal Liberal leader’s personal memoir is set to be released this fall

TORONTO – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has announced he will publish a personal memoir.

In a press release, publisher HarperCollins Canada called the book — which will be published in English and French — “candid.”

The autobiography will cover the 42-year-old’s childhood at 24 Sussex Drive through to his McGill University days and his current political career.

According to the release, the book will also boast “anecdotes, personal reflections and never-before-seen photographs” from Trudeau’s personal collection.

The memoir is set to be released this fall.

All proceeds will be donated to the domestic programs of the Canadian Red Cross Society.

“I am pleased to have this opportunity to tell my life’s story, particularly as a teacher, Member of Parliament and father,” Trudeau said in the release.

“These experiences and the many people who have played a role in my life have all shaped my outlook on politics, public service and what it means to be Canadian. … I look forward to sharing this journey with you.”

Justin Trudeau to publish ‘candid’ memoir in English, French

  1. Good for JT, hopefully he wont use others(ghost writers)to write it for him.

  2. Hmmm. I am a Trudeau supporter, but I find this a bit of an eye roller.

    • I am willing to bet, Trudeaus new book will be a best seller, and it a way to let all Canadians know more about him and raise money for charity at the same time. If Tom was to write a book about his memoirs, their is a chance he would have to talk about the Quebec corruption thing or the problems he had with his mortgage, in other words he is not willing to go on the record with the truth.

  3. “Memoir” ???
    -but he is 42, not 82.
    …but hey, since “All proceeds will be donated to the domestic programs of the Canadian Red Cross Society….”
    then sure, that’s going to good use.
