Mount Pierre Elliott Trudeau

Mount Pierre Elliott Trudeau is a 2,640 m (8,661 ft) mountain located at co-ordinates 52°48′10″N 119°25′31″W / 52.80278°N 119.42528°W / 52.80278; -119.42528 in the Premier Range of the Cariboo Mountains in the Interior of British Columbia, Canada. The mountain is located on the south side of the McLennan River, just west of Valemount.

The name honours the fifteenth Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, who died in 2000. Upon Trudeau's death, then-Prime Minister Jean Chrétien floated the idea of renaming Mount Logan, Canada's highest peak, for Trudeau; when this met with resistance, this formerly un-named peak was given the designation on June 10, 2006 in a ceremony held at Valemount and attended by Trudeau's eldest son, Justin.
