If this was a candidate for ANY party they would be rightly removed immediately. There would be no excuses, no acceptable explanations, they would be gone.
BREAKING - ⁦⁩ wore #Brownface while he was drama teacher in a private school, reports . Which Canadians vote for #Trudeau as their Prime Minister? Man who groped women; found violating ethics twice & now photographed as #Blackface
Put PEI on high alert! The Liberals are going to need all the potatoes to make enough poutine to fix this.
This photo was in the school yearbook! How in the world did it go unnoticed all these years?
Message from your friendly anti-racism critic: If you wore blackface, don’t tell anyone that you wore blackface, and did so as an educator, it’s hard to trust you leading anti-racism strategies for Canada. And no, apologies aren’t enough. #elx43 #cdnpoli
If the Liberals aren’t prepared to apply their reactionary cancel culture to their own leader, they should stop maligning Conservative candidates every day of the campaign for years-old indiscretions.

I guess didn't hear about poutine.
While addressing his 2001 “brownface” incident...the PM admits to having put make up on his face and singing the “Banana Boat song” by African American Harry Belafonte. THAT’S TWICE in black/brown face! #Hypocrite #Trudeau #cdnpoli
So let's get it straight: This happened in 2001, when he was 29 and a school teacher. The photo's in the school's yearbook, but it's only now being reported. And this isn't the only time he's done this: he says he's worn blackface before "at parties."
I was born same year as #Trudeau. When I was teenager, I knew it wasn't ok. When I was 29 I definitely knew it was #racist Stop saying you had on makeup. It was #blackface #brownface #CampbellforWaterloo will stand up for you. I know #RacismIsReal
Other than Trudeau looking ridiculous at this party, I can't see why this should matter in the year 2019. He wasn't a government official at the time and other than the image being cringeworthy, I doubt it's hurting me in any way.
People switching their hot takes on racism and forgiveness in 3...2...1...
seriously though, what the fuck

Holy shit. I don't think Justin Trudeau can survive this
I can't decide if my loathing of these endless "gotcha" moments is outweighed by the schadenfreude of watching the smug and self-righteous getting hoisted by their own petards... tough call.
