01-Aug-06 -

And still the Liberals persist in trying to perpetuate the myth that is Pierre Trudeau. The CBC has hired Liberal filmmaker Brian McKenna to produce a docudrama (low on documentation, high on melodrama) of World War 1, The Great War. In turn, McKenna hired Liberal dauphin, Justin, the non-pro, itchy-footed, forever juvenile, no acting experience, son of former Nazi Pierre (see our story of June 15, Mount No-Name, gingerly, named Mount Trudeau -- next Mountain ... Mount Mussolini?) to play the part of Talbot Papineau, a genuine hero of the war.

All other actors are descendents of World War 1 heroes. Those lesser beings McKenna didn't pay; put through a grueling boot camp; fed World War 1 trench food. But not the would-be second-coming of Napoleon Bonaparte. Wrote one actor, R M from Ontario, Canada to the Globe and Mail today:

Oh how the decendents [sic] mocked Justin throughout the experience. We all had ancestors who fought (and many died). We didn't receive a penny from Galafilm (no one did it for money or any inkling of fame). We lived in horrid conditions with inadaquate boots and strict military discipline. Justin, on the other hand, had a catered breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He was paid for his services. Most importantly of all, he didn't live we us in the camp (I heard a rumour that he wanted to live with us - but then he never once ate the gruel we had for breakfast or the bread for lunch). The man needed an unbrella to protect his make-up while 150 others sweated in heavy gauge wool tunics under heat-wave condition weather. But I guess having a father who was PM is worth abandoning the noble concept that this project first intended to portray - that of the descendents of veterans. Hey I understand that hiring Justin will boost ratings come April 2007, but the Globe, and all the other national media outlets need to be aware that this project is about the memory of Great War veterans, heroes who suffered beyond anything we can understand. NOT about a kid (who has no ancestor who took part in WW1) and whose only reason for taking part is because of who his father was.

Wrote another, Robert Boyd from Windsor, Canada:

This guy should not be playing the role of a brave man in the Great War.He should be acting out the part has father played in WW2.True to form CBC/McKenna groveling to the new Prince, who admits he can act bugger-all.

McKenna has tried to deck Junior out in a British Officer's uniform all spit and polish. It is, ironically and unfortunately, Papineau's toothbrush mustache that does in he who would be King - Trudeau comes out looking a parody of Charley Chaplain's 1940 parody of the man Justin's Father worshipped, Adolf Hitler, The Great Dictator. The gasping question is - will the CBC airbrush out the Hitler mustache.
