While in Paris, Pierre had spent some time with Canadian Gérard Pelletier, who was then with World University Service, he says, “giving American money to countries that were about to go Communist.” (Maclean’s, February 24, 1962.)

Now, in Montreal, in 1951, Trudeau and Pelletier began to publish a magazine they called Cité Libre, in which they carried the commentaries of various distinguished intellectuals. There was Professor Raymond Boyer, for instance, who earlier had been exposed by Gouzenko and convicted of Soviet espionage. There was frequent contributor Pierre Gélinas, Quebec Director of Agitation and Propaganda for the Communist Party. There was Stanley B. Ryerson, leading theoretician of the Communist Party and editor of Marxist Review.

Part Two, The Big Switch:

In 1963, as you will remember, Trudeau had campaigned for the Marxist New Democrats, and had called the Liberals “idiots” and “a spineless herd.” Two years later, in 1965, Trudeau, Gérard Pelletier and Jean Marchand, of Cité Libre, decided to run for Parliament themselves — as Liberals.

In an article in Le Devoir, Trudeau and Pelletier explained to the dumbfounded N.D.P. that “we are pursuing the same objectives and adhering to the same political ideas we have been espousing for so long in Cité Libre…. ” Among these ideas was “a politics open to the left.” It should be understood, they explained, that “a political party is not an end, but a means.”

Part Three, The Rest Of The Ring:

There is Gérard Pelletier, of Cité Libre, who, like Jean-Louis Gagnon, has also been an editor at La Presse. Pelletier is now Trudeau’s Secretary of State. One of the Members of Parliament quoted earlier also told us that in his opinion Pelletier is “the most dangerous man of all — very clever, very deceitful, very doctrinaire.” It was unnecessary to ask which doctrine he had in mind.
