    Alexandre Trudeau on Allan Gregg in Conversation

    TORONTO, June 7 /CNW/ - Alexandre Trudeau joins TVO's Allan Gregg in
Conversation Friday June 15, 2007 at 10 pm and offers his reflections on his
father Pierre Trudeau, human rights, wanderlust and more.
    In 1960, Pierre Trudeau - then a labour lawyer - travelled to China with
journalist Jacques Hébert. Their book Two Innocents in Red China became a
Canadian classic, credited by many as helping to open China to the world. Now,
more than 40 years later, the book is being reissued with a new introduction
and epilogue by Trudeau's son Alexandre. Learn more about Pierre Trudeau's
reasons for going to China, his motivations for writing this groundbreaking
book (including the significance of the title!), and other intriguing
perspectives.
    Alexandre also talks of his father's influence on his own values and life
path: "He opened the world to me." From a very young age Alexandre travelled
with his father, who by 1960 - more than a decade before Alexandre's birth -
had been to virtually every country in the world. Alexandre's own work as a
documentary filmmaker has taken him to many of the world's danger spots: he
has reported from Iraq, Liberia, Haiti and Israel. He tells Gregg about his
recent documentary on Canada's use of security certificates, which allow the
government to arrest terror suspects who are not citizens and detain them
without charge.

    Allan Gregg in Conversation features host Allan Gregg in
thought-provoking discussion with some of the world's foremost thinkers on
social, cultural, political and economic issues.
