Barbarous Pierre

August 1976
National Review;8/6/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 29, p831
The article criticizes the decision of the government of Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau to exclude athletes from Taiwan in the 78th session of the International Olympic Committee in Montreal, Quebec. This decision revealed Trudeau's hypocrisy as he praised Canada's intention to recognize excellence, whatever the country of its origin. It is more damning when this decision was based on Peking's pressure not recognizing Taiwan as an independent republic.
