I'm of two minds. Quebec separatism was only a burgeoning movement when Pierre Trudeau entered politics.

But it reached its peaks and nearly achieved its goal during his prime ministerial tenure and after his resignation when he was still heavily involved pulling lots of strings behind the scenes.

He may not be the unwitting father of the Quebec independence movement but he certainly added a lot of oil to the fire IMO.
