Trudeau Major


The closing of Nathan Greenfield’s review of Allen Mills’ Citizen Trudeau, 1944–1965: An Intellectual Biography in the Times Literary Supplement (23 & 30 December 2016):

In other words, Trudeau argued that Canada’s natural bounty and persons should be managed for the benefit of those persons who were Canadian, with the management being in the hands of the elected representatives in Parliament who were imbued with “unintellectual pragmatism.” This last is Mills’ phrase, which does not mean ignorance, but rather sums up the political imaginary of of what is surely the last political mind in the British and American constitutional systems of whom an intellectual biography can be written.
