For over four decades, media protectionism accorded to the family and offspring of ex-Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau would have become common knowledge–or darn close.
Out of all media cover-ups, spins and obfuscations, little compares to the shady circumstances surrounding the death of Pierre’s youngest son, Michel Trudeau.
The moment of the expiry of Trudeau’s third son was November 13th, 1998. It occurred on the ominous date of Friday the 13th. A full three days later, an article was published by reputable media organization, Associated Press.
“Helicopters crews saw no sign of the youngest son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau during an aerial search Monday over the mountain lake where he is believed to have drowned.”
As recorded, Michel Trudeau died on the previous Friday. Why would a 48 hour time-lapse occur when searching for the body of the son of the ruling Prime Minister of Canada? More mystery follows:
As it happens, in warm, shallow water, decomposition works quickly, surfacing a corpse within two or three days. But cold water slows decay, and people who drown in deep lakes, 30 metres or below, may never surface.
Meaning that a search by air–particularly two days after the death– most likely would be entirely ineffective.
“After an unexpected break in what had been snowy, foggy weather, rescue workers began their hunt for Michel Trudeau, who was swept into an icy lake by an avalanche Friday in southeastern British Columbia.”
Now, a comment from the the manager of the ski resort where young Michel and friends had been skiing:
Evan Manners, manager of the Canadian Avalanche Centre in Revelstoke, B.C., said that “before the Trudeau death he had never heard of an avalanche pushing someone into the water who then drowned. “It’s very rare,” he told the National Post shortly after the accident.
Media stated that police carried out an “extensive search”– but the body of Michel Trudeau was NEVER FOUND— a surprising event because the very spot where he allegedly went under the water is well known, and there are no reported currents in the lake which would carry the body away from that area.
The others reportedly in the group, Jeff Butcher, 22, and Bradley Hamacher, 23, huddled with [third person]Bednarz to keep him warm.
They yelled at Mike[Trudeau] “to swim, swim, swim’ but basically just watched him go under the water,″ Paul Sinclair, who was with the group a day earlier, told the National Post.
If this fellow Paul Sinclair was with the group “a day earlier” as the media article suggests, there is no way he could have been an eyewitness. True, or not true?
Now, let us get a bit deeper, so to speak. In an interesting co-incidence, that may not be a co-incidence at all, Michel Trudeau was nearly killed on July 17th, 1998— five months before his actual death when his motor vehicle was broadsided by another vehicle while he was driving in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada.”
The alleged accident was so powerful that the truck Michel Trudeau was driving rolled over several times and was a complete write off.
By all appearances, it was a miracle that Michel Trudeau survived. The day of the week was a Friday. Five months later, Michel Trudeau was dead. The three young men who were reportedly with Trudeau never made a public statement.
On Friday the 13th, Michel Trudeau died. HIs corpse disappeared, never to be found. A spokesman for Pierre Trudeau issued a statement from Montreal saying Michel’s parents were “deeply saddened.”
A statement from a “spokesman” for Pierre Trudeau? You mean to say the erudite, out-spoken ex-PM of Canada could not issue a statement himself?
It well appears that neither father Pierre, nor mother Margaret Trudeau, travelled to the location of the death to see the situation with their own eyes.
Such strange, sketchy circumstances surround the death of Michel Trudeau is 1998. To this day– a full thirty-two years later– not a single Canadian media outlet has reported on a case containing myriad examples of oddities, mysteries and cover-ups regarding the death of the youngest son of Pierre Trudeau.
