Following his father into politics, he got involved in the Liberal party from an early age, speaking out on everything from federalism to Quebec's secession.
He used his political power to promote public safety, specifically avalanche warning programs, and opposed the construction of zinc mines, which he argued would poison the local environment.
He was raised alongside his brothers Alex Andre and Michel. He married former model and television host Sophie Gregoire. He has three kids named Xavier, Hadrien and Ella.
His father Pierre Trudeau was the Prime Minister of Canada from 1968 to 1979.
