How did Justin Trudeau earn his money and wealth?
Justin was born in Ontario, Canada on 25th December 1975 to Pierre Trudeau and Margaret Sinclair and serves as the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada. After Joe Clark, he is the second-youngest prime minister of Canada. Since 2013, he has been the leader of the Liberal party. He is also a teacher and has worked at Vancouver, British Columbia after graduating. He was born on the day of Christmas which marked the second instance in history for a child to be born to a prime minister in office. His parents got divorced when he was aged five and Justin was sent to live with his father. He is a graduate from McGill University which he left in 1994, and in 1998, he graduated from University of British Columbia. Justin has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Literature and a Bachelor of Education Degree.
He is the eldest son of Pierre Trudeau. When his father died in October 2000, a eulogy by Justin Trudeau at his state funeral brought him tremendous limelight. He was elected at the 2008 federal election to represent in the House of Commons, the riding of Papineau. He became the Liberal Party’s critic in 2009 and focused on youth and multiculturalism. In 2010, he was appointed as the critic for citizenship and immigration as well. The liberal party had the support of Justin from a very young age. He was clear about which party he had to join. He learned everything about politics and his nation before he could participate in the elections. He wrote letters that were in favour of the nation.
He is a critic and majors in sport, youth and secondary education. For him, education has always been very important. He believes that, for a nation to flourish, its literacy rates should be high. He also believes that the Parliamentary budget office should not be depended on anything; it should be independent.
In 2013, the leadership of the Liberal Party went to Trudeau, and the party went on to emerge victorious at the 2015 federal election, increasing the number from 36 seats to 184 seats. It was the result of the longest official campaign that brought them 9.5% of the popular vote establishing them as the strong majority government. The Eastern half of Canada including Atlantic Canada and Toronto were won over by the Liberals. There were an additional 40 seats in Quebec that brought them the victory and was the highest number of seats in Quebec for them in the history of the party. Their slogan throughout the campaign focussed on “Real Change.” His thoughts are very modern and are suitable for the generation. He has ruled efficiently and not once has made rules that would subside the freedom of the people. He takes decisions very practically and gives importance to education. He reduced the taxes for middle-class people and believes in running a transparent government.
Trudeau is married to Sophie Grégoire who he first met when he was a child while living in Montreal. The classic romance shared by the couple is one to marvel over. Grégoire and Trudeau crossed paths again in June 2003 where Grégoire was a co-host to Trudeau for a charity ball. They announced their engagement in October 2004 and their relationship culminated in marriage in 2005 at Montreal’s Sainte-Madeleine d’Outremont Church. Xavier James (2007), Ella-Grace Margaret (2009) and Hadrien Grégoire (2014) are their three children. His salary for the year 2017 as the Prime Minister of Canada was $345,400, and in the year 2016, he earned $340,800.
