While he’s busy trashing President Trump for threatening to leave NAFTA, Justin Trudeau is going to be very busy trying not to be the next take down of the #MeToo movement. Yes, that’s right. Old Justin took liberties with women he shouldn’t have. And now it’s time to pay the piper.
Breitbart reported the latest woman to come forward to put the spotlight on Trudeau. And she’s a member of the press, so this isn’t likely to go away any time soon.
WOW. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was accused of "groping" a young female reporter on assignment in August 2000. "Like father, like son" reads the editorial. https://t.co/7GiBEd6RIr

According to the Creston Valley Advance, Trudeau told the young woman: “I’m sorry. If I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I would never have been so forward.
Sure, like it would have been appropriate if the woman had not been a reporter?
Here is a slightly better quality image of an editorial in the August 14, 2000 Creston Valley Advance, a local B.C. paper, which claims Justin Trudeau apologized for "inappropriately handling" (or "groping" in the paper's words) a female reporter. pic.twitter.com/fZ748QqWYX

The editorial, largely dismissive of the apology, chides Trudeau over what the author perceives as a lack of self-awareness as the son of former prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
“[S]houldn’t the son of a former prime minister be aware of the rights and wrongs that go along with public socializing?” theeditorial asks.
This should be interesting as the story unfolds. If Trudeau falls by the wayside as other #MeToo offenders, Canada better start looking for another PM.
