Trudeau tops history magazine's 'worst Canadian' list





Pierre Trudeau has topped the list of the 10 "worst Canadians" in an online survey conducted by the country's top history magazine, the Beaver.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper placed sixth on the list, and ex-PMs Brian Mulroney (fourth) and Jean Chretien (eighth) also made the top 10.

The Beaver's plan to rank the most-loathed Canadians had stirred advance media interest around the world, largely because the concept seemed to run counter to Canadians' international reputation for never saying a bad word about anybody.

The survey drew 15,000 responses, according to the Beaver's Winnipeg-based publisher, Canada's National History Society.
