In less than 24 hours, three photos and one video have revealed three separate occasions on which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau donned blackface or brownface.
Trudeau has apologized for the incidents, crediting them to his “privilege,” which prevented him from understanding them as racist at the time.
True North’s Andrew Lawton was live to talk about what this means for Trudeau’s re-election campaign.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.
Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.
How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.
This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
