In this interview on CBC's The Barbara McLeod Show, Trudeau discusses how she's making a life for herself as a host on an Ottawa morning TV show after her split from Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

• "Perhaps, in the end, all that I have done comes back to one simple fact: that I was not intended for political public life. None of it, not the people, nor the demands, nor the rules, nor even the rewards. They were not for me, and no matter how hard I tried, I could not shape my character to fit what was required of me." -- Margaret Trudeau in Consequences
