The other brother: Sacha, the 'apolitical' one, joins Justin Trudeau's campaign team
Alexandre “Sacha” Trudeau, 38, is taking a break from globetrotting to act as a senior adviser in his brother Justin’s campaign for leader of the Liberal Party
Nine years ago, Alexandre Trudeau huddled in a Sunni family’s Baghdad living room as missile fire rained onto the city.
There could have been a safer way for the second son of Pierre Elliott Trudeau to cover the Iraq War. But he insisted on being one of the few journalists to live among the people of Baghdad as their city burned.
Trudeau has made a career of living dangerously. Soon after producing Embedded in Baghdad, he joined a group of rebel fighters on a perilous trip across the Sudanese desert as the country sank into civil war.
Documentary work also brought him to Gaza, Serbia, Liberia and other turbulent destinations.
Now, Alexandre “Sacha” Trudeau, 38, is taking a break from globetrotting to act as a senior adviser in his brother Justin’s campaign for leader of the Liberal Party. It’s a move that may seem surprising coming from a man who, for years, insisted he was apolitical.
While producing Secure Freedom, film about the Canadian government’s detention of refugees, Trudeau drew national media attention when he offered to act as a surety for accused terrorist Hassan Almrei. (In the end, the terrorism charges against Almrei were dropped and he was freed after having being jailed for eight years.)
In 2006, Trudeau wrote a Toronto Star article praising Fidel Castro’s Cuba at a time when the dictator was an international pariah for human rights abuses. (Castro was an honorary pallbearer at Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s funeral in 2000. The Cuban leader and former Canadian prime minister became friends after Trudeau’s state visit to Cuba in 1976.)
