TRUDEAU'S DEFERENCE TO THE ARCHITECT of this house is well deserved. Ernest Cormier (1885-1980) trained as an engineer in Montreal.
His most famous works are municipal buildings, but it was into his own residence that he put his whole heart and imagination. When
Trudeau acquired it, the house was sadly rundown, but the skilled Canadian craftsmen he hired have restored it to what it had been
-a unique example of the style known as Art Deco that burst upon the world in the 1920s.
