I'm so used to seeing controversy over Trump, and all the shenanigans with Brexit that this Trudeau photo doesn't even register on my offended scale. It really goes to show how boring Canadian politicians are.

Wearing a costume is fine. Applying face paint to appear a different race is odd, perhaps a professional can explain the psychology of such an act?

What a load of old bollocks... has everyone lost their haha??
Indeed Siouxie......but you do know that these days people enjoy getting offended! Its a new competition to see who can get the most offended!

I am no fan Trudeau, but I don't see this as racist....its just something for offended party to get offended about. Im sorry if this post "offended" anyone. I also breathed a few times as I was writing this post....I hope that didn't offend anyone either.

Kerfuffle about not a lot in my opinion. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.. It was a while ago. Just underlines his immaturity even then, the main message to observe from this episode. I can't stand him and would love to see him out on his arse come the GE. So much more to take issue with him and his Liberal government than this.

One party alleged, the other party denied, is a party guilty on the basis of an allegation these days?

You may recall that he has been accused of doing so, but suggested that the girl involved must have had a different recollection/interpretation of it than he did. How does this differ from your comments regarding Kavanaugh?

No, that's not at all what happened. A third party alleged. Trudeau apologised at the time (it was included in the original regional newspaper editorial, I recall).The individual concerned said that she considered the matter closed, and had no intention of pursuing anything. Nobody with any knowledge of the incident classified it as a sexual assault - that is a construct that was put on it by others. Including you, it seems.

In contrast, several women have come forward and given evidence against Kavanaugh. The fact that the evidence was not considered damning enough to prevent his confirmation to the Supreme Court is fair enough; Kavanaugh, though, far from acknowledging and apologizing, has flatly denied that any such incidents took place, despite a growing body of evidence that he is lying through his teeth. Evidence that may not stand up to the burden of proof in a criminal case, but that certainly doesn't pass the smell test.

But no, you go on ahead and equate the incidents if you will. That's your prerogative.

She said he groped her.

Groping is not a sexual assault?
