Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has Malay blood in him!

Margaret Sinclair Trudeau
Justin Trudeau, prime minister of Canada. Malay blood is also running through his vein! Awesome!

I first watched this CBC television series titled "Who Do You Think You Are" where the mother of Justin Trudeau, current prime minster of Canada, Margaret Sinclair Trudeau travelled thousands of miles to Singapore to visit the grave of her Malay great-great-great grandmother Esther and she cried while reading the epitapth.  Read Here....
Esther's father was a French army officer and her mother was a Malay woman from the island of Temasik, what is now Singapore.  She came from quite a well positioned Malay family at that time.
Justin Trudeau talked about diversity and pluralistic humans and his diversity is reflected in his own DNA is: He has French, English, Scottish and Malay blood in him.
Looking at Justin Trudeau I cannot help but to observe some Malay features that I can sometimes see in his facial expression.

I guess in those times being Malay did not translate to being Muslim, right? same as the Filipino Malays? That's why she was named Esther? And I'm guessing she was a Christian or rather Catholic? In those days one couldn't marry Catholics unless they converted to the religion.

After reading the article I noticed it said Malaysian woman, not Malay. Chances are she would have been an Eurasian in Singapore.
