                        STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT

     I was deeply saddened to learn today of the death of Pierre Trudeau.
As Prime Minister for nearly a generation, Pierre Trudeau opened a dynamic
new era in Canadian politics and helped establish Canada's unique imprint
on the global stage.  I know his passing will be felt by all Canadians.
Hillary joins me in offering the condolences of the American people to his
two sons and to the people of Canada.
