He placed a greater priority on Canada’s relations with China
which led to establishment of diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China in 1970.
In 1973, Trudeau became the first Canadian Prime Minister to visit China.

Trudeau a 'showoff,' diplomat told U.S
Claiming to be a Communist showed his 'desire to shock'
Elizabeth Thompson, CanWest News Service, May 21, 2003
A top Canadian diplomat told the United States that Pierre Trudeau was "a showoff" and "an individual not possessing much common sense," in a bid to allay concerns that Communists had infiltrated the Canadian government, according to secret U.S. State Department documents.
In a two-page Memorandum of Conversation dated May 7, 1952, a U.S. State Department official recounts a conversation with George Ignatieff, then second-in-command at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, who approached him to discuss Mr. Trudeau's "indiscreet" behaviour at a conference in Moscow.
"The Canadians describe him as young and adventurous with a desire to travel and as an individual not possessing much common sense," wrote H. Raynor, director of the State Department's British North America section. The Memorandum of Conversation was classified "secret security information" for more than 50 years until it was declassified following a request from the Montreal Gazette.
The document sheds new light on Canada's relations with the U.S. during the Cold War and the McCarthy era -- a period when the U.S. was obsessed with fighting communism. It could also help explain why the Federal Bureau of Investigation accumulated a voluminous file on the former prime minister.
It all began when Mr. Trudeau, then 32, decided to attend an economic conference in the Soviet Union. In what Canadian chargé d'affaires Robert Ford later described as "an infantile desire to shock," Mr. Trudeau told the wife of U.S. chargé d'affaires Hugh Cumming that he was a Communist and a Catholic, then went on to criticize the U.S. and praise the Soviet Union.
Concerned that the incident involving a former Privy Council employee would undermine U.S. estimates of Canada's security, Mr. Ignatieff was dispatched in what appears to be a pre-emptive strike.
"In view of certain indiscreet remarks and perhaps behaviour while at Moscow, the Canadians imagine we may receive a report from our Embassy about his activity," wrote Mr. Raynor. "The Canadians desire us to know that he is not considered a security risk in Ottawa. While he was formerly employed in the Privy Council's Office, it was in a minor capacity and the Canadians state that he had no access to classified information."
Mr. Ignatieff described Mr. Trudeau as "an individual of neutralist sentiments" and did not say whether Mr. Trudeau was a Communist.
"Mr. Ignatieff said that he did not know whether or not in fact he was a Communist."
Ottawa historical researcher Christopher Cook, who uncovered Mr. Ford's memo to the Canadian government about the incident, said the U.S. might have kept the State Department document secret to protect the Canadian government.
"They might have felt that they were protecting the Canadian government from embarrassment about the fact that they approached the U.S. government on Canadian citizens and this issue of whether they can be trusted or not."

...The show, he stresses, is much more than a dry chronicling of the historic visit between Nixon and Mao Zedong (sung by baritone Robert Orth and heldentenor Alan Woodrow, respectively) and the opening of the Far East. Yes, the opera depicts actual events: the arrival of Nixon and his cortege, the first uncomfortable meeting in Mao’s study and the huge banquet that followed it, as well as Pat Nixon’s tour of rural China. But it is just as much about the personalities and personal histories of the main players, not just Richard and Pat Nixon and Mao and his wife Chiang Ch’ing, but their advisers Henry Kissinger and Zhou Enlai....
Vancouver Opera general manager James Wright admits it’s a big investment to commission a new production—not to mention one that has a chorus of 40. But Nixon in China, he says, seemed perfect for this city at this time, with the world gathered here. “It’s about internationalism; it’s about cultures moving closer together,” says Wright, whose team is hosting an entire speaker series around the opera and Canada-China relations in the weeks before opening. “Then there is the fact that Beijing had hosted the 2008 Olympics, and the fact that Vancouver is seen as the North American centre for Asia.” Michael Cavanagh, the acclaimed Toronto-based director Wright brought in to create the major new production, could not agree more. In fact, sitting in the rehearsal hall at the downtown Holy Rosary Cathedral, where right outside the doors people are decked out in flag gear and heading to a hockey game, he can’t help but make direct parallels with the Olympic Games....

Spokesperson for Canadian top executives not concerned (about long arm of China reaching out to grab Canada's crown jewels), by Eric Lam, Financial Post, Sep 16, 2009
The world will be watching how Canada reacts to a Chinese energy company's $1.9-billion investment in Athabasca Oil Sands Corp., the chief executive of the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada said yesterday. Yuen Pau Woo, head of the foundation, said in a speech at a Toronto business forum that getting the deal approved will send a strong message that Canada is ready and serious about working with the emerging power of China. "An important test ahead is this proposed deal," he said. "[Federal Finance Minister Jim] Flaherty was in Beijing recently, and he was quoted as saying Canada was open to Chinese investment. His words will be put to the test. The world will be watching." At the end of August, Petro-China Company Ltd., a subsidiary of state-owned China National Petroleum Corp., announced it was buying a 60% interest in two of Athabasca's undeveloped properties in Alberta, the largest investment from China to date. The two companies expect the deal to be closed by Oct. 31. Thomas d'Aquino, chief executive of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, said he understood the concerns Canadians have with foreign investment, especially from China. "[There is] the issue of Chinese investment, that the long arm of China will reach out and grab Canada's crown jewels," he said in a speech just before Mr. Woo. "But the only solution to prosperity is open borders." Mr. d'Aquino served former prime minister Pierre Trudeau as a special assistant when he ventured to China in 1970 and established diplomatic relations with the Communist power, and said the two countries now have an opportunity to build on that early foundation. "Think of the bold commitment of Trudeau and how long ago that was," he said. "I think relations are on a firmer footing than they have been in the past few years, but we need to do a lot more." Mr. Woo noted that with PetroChina's parent CNPC getting a US$30-billion loan from the China Development Bank for overseas expansion, Canada will have no choice but to embrace Asian power. "Chinese investment is on the rise and here to stay," he said.

Trudeau's Omnibus Bill: Challenging Canadian Taboos, CBC Archives YouTube, Jan 23, 1968
"There's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation." Those unforgettable words made famous by Pierre Trudeau in 1967 caused a tidal wave of controversy that rippled across the entire nation. Trudeau's Omnibus Bill brought issues like abortion, homosexuality and divorce law to the forefront for the first time, changing the political and social landscape in Canada forever....It's a month after the Omnibus Bill is introduced and Trudeau is starting to feel the heat from members of the House. Some claim abortion is murder and that the sexual acts clause promotes homosexuality. Asked if he plans to proceed with the bill in the upcoming session of Parliament, Trudeau tells the CBC's Ron Collister in this clip that it is "classed as top priority for this session" and it "should be passed forward as fast as it can". While the bill sought to liberalize abortion laws in Canada, it didn't allow women to have 'abortion on demand', much to the disgruntlement of a growing number of feminists and pro-choice advocates at the time. Women didn't receive that freedom until Jan. 28, 1988 when the Supreme Court of Canada struck down Canada's abortion law as unconstitutional because it infringed upon a woman's right to "life, liberty and security of person." In this same interview, Trudeau is asked about rumours that he planned to announce that weekend his intention to run for the Liberal leadership. His answer? "That speculation is completely false." Less than two weeks later Trudeau formally declared his candidacy. On Apr. 6, 1968 he won the Liberal leadership election in a landslide and was sworn in as Canada's 15th Prime Minister on April 20.
