The election of 1974 saw Trudeau and the Liberals re-elected with a majority government with 141 of the 264 seats. 
Furthermore his cultural legacy can be found in Canada's strong ties to multiculturalism. Long a goal of Trudeau this legislation requires all Federal services to be offered in French and English.
From the late 1960s until the mid-1980s he dominated the Canadian political scene and aroused passionate reactions. He was appointed as Lester Pearson's Parliamentary Secretary and later became his Minister of Justice. Critics accuse him of arrogance economic mismanagement and unduly favouring the federal government relative to the provinces especially in trying to distribute the oil wealth of the Prairies.
