They are about to have an election up North….
This is NOT a good look for Trudeau who might be able to get past this….
We ARE in the era of Trumpism…
The re-election campaign of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada was thrown into turmoil on Wednesday when a photograph surfaced of him wearing brownface makeup at a 2001 private school party.
The photograph had been taken when Mr. Trudeau, then a 29-year-old teacher, attended an “Arabian Nights” themed costume gala at the West Point Grey Academy in Vancouver, British Columbia, according to Time magazine, which published the image.
Speaking with reporters on board his campaign plane, Mr. Trudeau, who has long championed the rights of racial minorities in Canada, confirmed that the photo showed him at a costume party dressed as a character from Aladdin with his arms wrapped around a woman he described as “a close friend.”
“This is something I shouldn’t have done many years ago,” Mr. Trudeau said. “I take responsibility for my decision to do that. I didn’t think it was racist at the time. I now realize it was racist.”
