Trudeau apologizes for wearing brownface makeup in 2001 yearbook photo Trudeau apologizes for wearing brownface makeup in 2001 yearbook photoI attended an end-of-year gala where the theme was Arabian nights and I dressed up in Aladdin, costume and put makeup on. I shouldn’t have done that should have known better, but I didn’t and I’m really sorry in 2001 School. I wasn’t supposed to do it and I and I am deeply sorry – I’m disappointed people who’ve made mistakes in in this life and you make decisions based on what they actually do, what they did on a case-by-case basis. I think I deeply regret that we had that. I did that I should have known better. I regret that I did it it’s not about timing, it’s about having done something that I shouldn’t have done, and I’m really sorry you’re like you’ve ever done. Something like that when I was in high school I get dressed up at a talent, show and same deal with that with makeup on Secondary School. In my skin and Ice same day. Oh, we will be at your eye. I’M truly sorry. I’ve known better, but I didn’t get that I shouldn’t have done it. I shouldn’t have done it. I should have known better. It was something that I didn’t think racist at the time, but now I recognize it was something racist to do and I am deeply sorry. I have made a number of calls to friends and colleagues tonight and I will have many more call extend move. Many more calls tonight my life to try and I create opportunities for people to Fight Against Racism and intolerance, and I can just stand here and say that I made a mistake when I was younger and I wish I had. I should have known better then, and I did it and I am deeply sorry for, but I can’t answer a hypothetical I’m going to be asking Canadians to forgive me for what I did. It was a dumb thing to do. Disappointed in myself. Stop myself for having done it, I wish I hadn’t done it, but I did it and I apologize for this – something that I regret deeply having gun I’ve taken responsibility for it for having made a real mistake in the past. I stand here before Canadians, as I will make a better country together and I’m going to continue to stay, focused on that and continue to work to fight intolerance and discrimination. Even though, obviously I made a mistake, could you not know that this was racist? Take responsibility for read that I’m going to continue to work very hard to demonstrate to Canadians that I’m always going to try and I take responsibility for my mistakes, but always work towards a better future for all Canadians. That’S ibogaine Winnipeg tomorrow or going to be meeting with Canadians, we’re going to continue getting out there across the country and talking, but not the kind of future. We all need to roll up our sleeves and belt a little more latitude. I think this is something I take seriously and obviously disappointed in myself and I am apologizing to Canadians. I will stake and taking stock in the passport, and I’m having conversations with with my colleagues with fellow candidates and I’m going to be continued into having conversations with Canadians about this and about many other things that were hoping to work together on positively with individuals. Probably over the last hour in talking to Rachel as members of your cabinet and rackauckas, what have they said to you? I said to them what I am saying here, how I take responsibility for its, how I did something that I really shouldn’t have done and I’m disappointed and pissed off at myself what they said: stop. Mia’s, I have Ivan a talking to candidates to see I’ve been Talked to my fellow candidates tonight can people who withdrew their candidacy for lesson. evaluated cases on a case-by-case basis, garment decor conversations about this over the pasta over the past while but the reality is that we’re going to continue to focus on fighting discrimination and racism is A person now we know better in this was something that was unacceptable and, yes, we all have to have on how we judge the mistakes that we made in how we take responsibility for how we keep moving forward as a society recognizing. But we do need to do more to fight and to Black racism. Systemic discrimination unconscious bias. All these things that play not immune, certainly a significant reflection that that I’ve had over the past while on this and if it leads other people to have four sections and that’s a good thing. But this is very much about me taking responsibility, for. I think it’s well-known that communities and faced discrimination, the likes of which I have never. I personally had to experience. Is it’s a significant thing? That is very hurtful and that’s why I am so deeply disappointed in myself, genuine person, Canadian symbol, Dodge products, choice conversation with them tomorrow morning before they go to school, about taking responsibility for mistakes you make about living up every day to try and be a better Person and recognizing that when you make mistakes you have to take the van. I promise to do better conversations about how we move forward as a society. How we move forward as individuals, everyone who is going to be standing for office – needs to demonstrate that they’ve been perfect every step of their lives. There’S going to be a shortage of people running for office. I think what is important is yes, people get challenged on the sticks that made in the past that they recognize those mistakes when’s and who they choose to have a candidates. I think it it’s it’s been planning. The fact of the matter is that I’ve always and you’ll know this been more enthusiastic about costumes then is somehow is sometimes appropriate, but equations that tap that.. I regret deeply I’m going to have to continue to work to demonstrate the Canadians, but I’m focused on building a better world with less discrimination, last intolerance and racism, which was the wrong choice. One that I regret deeply I need to. I am owning up to I’m going to focus on looking for Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau makes a statement regarding a photo of him in 2001 wearing brownface makeup.
