“If Canada is to survive, it can only survive in mutual respect and in love with one another “ (Pierre Trudeau 1976). This quote shows how much Trudeau wanted Canadians to be treated as equals. Trudeau had a vision for Canada, where all people were treated equally. Throughout his stay in Parliament he had made huge steps for women's rights, decriminalized homosexuality, attempted to help aboriginal's and made multiculturalism and bilingualism government policies. Pierre showed through his actions that he valued the equality of all people. Shown by this quote he feels that Canada will only survive and prosper if all people could be accepted and given equal rights.
