Yes, it seems pretty clear to me that this is a warrant canary.

It may still be that they triggered it (or let it self-trigger via inaction) out of lack of desire to continue the project.

In any case, the presumed goal of the canary - making sure that no one trusts any future TrueCrypt version released via the normal channel - has certainly been successful.

Because the whole point of a "correct horse battery staple" password is to make a password you can remember simply as a story. It is counterproductive to add in foreign words (to the extent that makes a story harder) or other rules like how to represent accented characters or what punctuation to put between words.
