I haven’t given up on this Blog for all the Faithful Followers that stayed with me for so long, although I’m not as active here as I was in the beginning. This post explains why.

What I’m posting Today is self explanatory in the covering letter to The Independent, the  News Organization. The Independent replied the next Day this way,

    1. Good Day g p.
      A little known fact of Canadian History.
      For the last 7 years he was Prime Minister, from 1977 to 1984, I was in the unique position to be able to stand Face to Face with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, Justin’s father, and speak or pass him a short note without any Intermediaries as he entered or left the Member’s Entrance to the House of Commons. I never met him in private.

      The RCMP questioned me at length on my attitude toward him 2 weeks before he quit the job in February 1984 and he moved from that House to the Cormier House in Montreal he bought in 1979, 2 years after I entered his life.

      In 1985, I was invited to lunch with the Pope’s Apostolic Nuncio/Ambassador to CanaDa. The Man for all Seasons and Reasons, living in the Gate House with his Wife and driving me home after the lunch, told me his Wife is a Cormier.
      I was surprised to see our Family name associated with both the Political and Religious!

      You might want to click on the ‘About’ link at the top of the article to see how I got into that position with Trudeau, and what happened at the Lunch with the Pope’s Ambassador..

      The 1st Cormier arrived from France at the Settlement of Port Royal, Nova Scotia in 1644.
