Four years after leaving his position as anchor of the CBC’s suppertime news program in Montreal, Dennis Trudeau doesn’t consider himself retired.
The truth about Trudeau, who cuts a fine figure at 62, is that he’s been almost as busy since giving up the day-to-day pressure of being a chief newscaster.
He can be heard opining on international events, at 12:30pm daily on French station Corus Quebec’s Dutrizac Apres Midi.
He’s a columnist and feature writer for Montréal Centre Ville, a bilingual quarterly magazine published by Quebecor Media. Last month, he became a vice-president of Reporters Without Borders Canada, a global organization that raises awareness of press-freedom issues worldwide.
Before the closing of Corus’s AM 940 outlet in January, Trudeau did a seven-month stint as the station’s morning man.

In the five minutes she waited in a restaurant for this interview, she forged a connection with chef Richard Taitt, who wants to learn more about Raeburn-Baynes’s most recent initiative, the Triumph Through Adversity culinary arts program.
