( this story appears to be based on a newspaper editiorial from 2000 , the event appears to have took place in the interior of BC . but I love the quote when trudeau got caught m if he knew she worked for a major newspaper chain he never would of done it , but questions who and where is this female reporter now ? why has the national post chain never revealed to the public this incident happened ? )


Justin Trudeau Accused of Groping Reporter in 2000



by JOSHUA CAPLAN

7 Jun 2018

In a recently resurfaced editorial, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau appears to apologize for “inappropriately handling” a young journalist nearly 18 years ago.
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.”




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?” the editorial asks.

“Didn’t he learn through his vast experiences in public life, that groping a strange young woman isn’t in the handbook of proper etiquette, regardless of who she is, what her business is or where they are?”

Trudeau, a champion of the #MeToo movement, penned an essay in 2017 urging parents to raise their boys as feminists.

“[O]ur sons have the power and the responsibility to change our culture of sexism,” Trudeau wrote, adding, “Our sons have the power and the responsibility to change our culture of sexism.”

The 43-year-old leader unveiled a federal “gender equity” budget in February to reduce the pay gap between men and women.

Amid tense negotiations with the U.S. on NAFTA and tariffs, Trudeau plans to make gender equality a “top priority” at the G7 leaders’ summit in Quebec this week

( the editorial from BC would seem to indicate that some of his comments to the cbc might not of been truthful )


Trudeau says zero tolerance on misconduct toward women applies to him as well



In CBC Radio interview, PM says recent high-profile cases aren't about compliments taken the wrong way

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says women who come forward with complaints of sexual assault and harassment must be supported and believed.

And he's confident no one will be able to accuse him of the kinds of behaviour that have brought down several high-profile politicians this week.

"I've been very, very careful all my life to be thoughtful, to be respectful of people's space and people's headspace as well," he told CBC Radio's The House, in an interview airing Saturday.

When asked if any of his past actions could be misconstrued, Trudeau said he didn't think so.


"This is something that I'm not new to. I've been working on issues around sexual assault for over 25 years.

"My first activism and engagement was at the sexual assault centre at McGill students' society where I was one of the first male facilitators in their outreach program leading conversations — sometimes very difficult ones — on the issues of consent, communications, accountability, power dynamics."


The international #MeToo movement that has hit Hollywood producers, Capitol Hill and boardrooms has wafted into Canadian politics.

Last week, Trudeau accepted Kent Hehr's resignation from cabinet pending an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment.

Kristin Raworth alleged on social media that Hehr made the inappropriate comments — which included calling her "yummy" — when he was an Alberta MLA a decade ago and she was an employee at the legislature.

Hehr remains in caucus.

Hehr's resignation came hours after Patrick Brown stepped down as leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party following allegations of sexual misconduct.

In Tuesday's interview with CBC's Chris Hall, Trudeau said his government is trying to balance listening to victims and giving the accused due process, but he made a point of saying the recent allegations are cases where women felt unsafe in their work environment.

'No frivolous approaches'

"These are not just compliments that were taken wrong, or comments that could have meant nothing. There are situations in the cases that we're discussing these days that fundamentally made women unsafe in the work environment, unsure about themselves and truly affected their lives," he said.

"There are no frivolous approaches that have been highlighted so far."

An independent investigation into Hehr's behaviour will be conducted.

Trudeau said if allegations surfaced against him the same standards would apply.


Brown allegedly made sexual advances toward a 19-year-old staffer who was drunk during his time as a federal MP, according to one of two women whose accusations of sexual misconduct led to his resignation as leader of Ontario's Progressive Conservative party early Thursday.

He categorically denies those allegations.

The day before, Nova Scotia PC leader Jamie Baillie was forced out as party leader and later resigned his seat in the legislature after allegations of workplace sexual harassment.

Asked if he thought that MPs should have to sign a code of conduct when they take their place in the House of Commons, Trudeau said Canada's Olympic Athletes must sign a code of conduct before going off to represent Canada and that the idea was interesting.

"I think it's a very interesting idea that people who represent their communities and represent Canada in this place should really be accountable to a code of conduct," Trudeau said.

BONOKOSKI: Shocker! Resurfaced editorial slams Justin Trudeau as a groper

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau rises during Question Period in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Wednesday, June 6, 2018.PATRICK DOYLE / THE CANADIAN PRESS



Our feminist preacher of a prime minister, Justin Trudeau, had best bone up on the scriptures before he lectures again on how to treat women.

John 8:7 might be a good place to start, especially the bit about letting he who is without sin cast the first stone.

That’s always been a good one.

There are a bunch of others, of course, that don’t need paraphrased quotations from the Bible to deliver the same sort of message. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones, for example.

That one’s a homey, too.

And then there is this one: everything old is new again, an expression that certainly applies to the story now taking on a new life on social media about claims of Trudeau’s “groping” of a young female reporter 18 years ago while visiting the Kootenay-area town of Creston Valley, B.C., (Pop: 5,300).

The editor of Creston Valley Advance certainly wasn’t impressed with Trudeau’s alleged sexual manhandling of his reporter, and even wrote an editorial about the incident—headlined, “Open eyes”— which is now heating up Twitter.

When I called the Advance, the woman who answered the phone remembers the incident, but not the name of the reporter. She also knew that Lorne Eckersley, now the paper’s publisher, was the editor and the time, but there was no way in the world that she was going to give me his cellphone number to get his recollections.

“He’s on vacation,” she said. “Call back Monday. But I am not going to interrupt him.”

We could all use such guardians at the gate.

The newspaper led off its editorial with what it called Trudeau’s one-day-late “apology” to the unnamed reporter, which wasn’t an apology at all but more like some high-society toff looking down his nose at someone who was obviously a lesser being.

For this is what Trudeau reportedly said to the offended young woman: “I’m sorry. If I had known you were reporting for a national newspaper, I would never have been so forward.”

Say what? That it’s somehow okay to be inappropriate with a young reporter from a small-town weekly, but not to a reporter who might be also be making a few extra bucks by stringing her story to a national newspaper?

What would the hashtag be for that? #MeTooButNotYou?

Or #MeTooDepending?


This all allegedly happened when Trudeau was visiting the B.C. resort town and attending a local festival in August, 2000. But he was no kid at the time.

He was 29.

As the editorial rightly asked all those 18 years ago, “shouldn’t the son of a former prime minister be aware of the rights and wrongs that go along with public socializing?

“Didn’t he learn through his vast experiences in public life, that groping a strange young woman isn’t in the handbook of proper etiquette regardless of who she is, what her business is, or where they are?”

Our prime minister has yet to respond to this piece of his past coming back to haunt him, but he must — even if it detracts from some of the sound bites he would rather have come out of this weekend’s G7 summit in Quebec.

The Sun reached out to the Prime Minister’s Office but has not yet received a response.

But if there are those who look at the year 2000 and think Justin Trudeau was perhaps reeling from his famous father’s death as some sort of explanation, that would be a wrong conclusion.

Pierre Trudeau was still alive when his eldest son made that little trip to Creston Valley, B.C., although he did die a month later.

So what, then, was Trudeau the Younger’s excuse if the reporter’s accusations are true?

Chauvinist piggery awaiting exorcism?

Surely there has to be a reason.

And what if he did?

If Michael Bryant could zoom down the wrong side of Bloor Street to kill a cyclist that was bothering him, what makes you think any agency in Canada is going to find the little Prince guilty of anything?

And even if he did, so what?

He is driving the country down. He's screwing up our NAFTA negotiations, and Trump is openly treating him as a boring joke. Now he's going to settle things, once and for all, with Trump!

Good stuff. I think all of us here knew he was a scumbag. What’s most notable to me is that nobody vetted this guy. Media especially.

( the Canadian media have chosen to take a pass on this story and refuse to talk about it period , strange that trudeau seems to think his denial is good enough even though there is an actual editorial which seems to indicate that something did happen here or why else would someone have written it ? )


Don’t believe Canada’s media on Me Too stories

June 14, 2018 Brian Lilley Canadian Politics 2
.

Justin Trudeau at the G7 in Charlevoix.

    .

Next time you read, watch or hear a story about how Parliament Hill is learning to deal with sexual harassment in the Me Too era, ignore it.

Canada’s national media have proven they have selective interest in this topic.


It is now 8 days since Warren Kinsella posted the editorial from the Creston Valley Advance about Justin Trudeau groping a young reporter in 2000. It’s been a full week since my Sun colleague Mark Bonokoski published his column on Trudeau laying out the allegations in a major daily newspaper.

Since then the story has been picked up by Buzzfeed, The Sun UK, The Daily Telegraph, Breitbart and Narcity. Even the New York Times made mention of it here.

Notice that other than the Sun, these are all online or out of country media outlets. There are no newspapers outside of the Sun, no Canadian TV networks have touched this. Next to no Canadian coverage at all.


I wrote about it in the Toronto Sun here. I know that it has been covered on talk radio by myself, Bill Carroll, Roy Green and I am sure some others but where is the rest of the coverage.

There is a story waiting to be told.

The woman at the centre of these 18 year old allegations does not want to talk. I can I understand her position but that doesn’t mean there is no story.

There is the original editorial, the one that quotes Trudeau.

“If I had known you were reporting for a national paper, I never would have been so forward,” the paper reported Trudeau saying.


There is the part of the editorial that chastises Trudeau for his actions.

“Didn’t he learn through his vast experiences in public life, that groping a strange young woman isn’t in the handbook of proper etiquette regardless of who she is, what her business is, or where they are.”

There is the comment that Bonokoski got from the PMO that I’m sure they would give to anyone that called or emailed them.

“He remembers being in Creston for the Avalanche Foundation, but he doesn’t think he had any negative interactions there,” Matt Pascuzzo said.

All of these are the basis for a story and at least should prompt questions to Trudeau about this issue.

Where are the questions?

Remember, these allegations were out there on the evening of Wednesday June 6. Trudeau spoke to the media on Thursday and Friday before the G7 but faced no questions. He didn’t get questioned on this at the G7 closing news conference.

When he got back to Ottawa, Trudeau also was able to speak to the media on Tuesday and Wednesday without being questioned.


Sure, we are in the middle of a trade war but it isn’t like Trudeau hasn’t been answering questions on other topics. It isn’t like the reporters on Parliament Hill are only dealing with one story.

This is a study in ignoring a major story that is sitting right in front of them. When Patrick Brown faced allegations every media outlet jumped on them. When Rick Dykstra faced allegations the same thing happened.

Liberal MPs such as Darshan Khan, Kent Hehr, Massimo Pacetti and Scott andrews were all covered extensively. An old complaint against New Democrat Christine Moore was covered extensively.

Allegations against Justin Trudeau?

The national media doesn’t want to see it, doesn’t want to cover it.

They won’t hold Trudeau to the same standard they hold others to even though he says it should apply.

“The standard applies to everyone,” Justin Trudeau told CBC in an interview in February. In that interview he also said it doesn’t matter how old the allegations are.

“There is no context in which someone doesn’t have responsibility for things they have done in the past,” Trudeau said.

Except in the context of Canada’s national media.

This is political bottom-feeding. Keep in on file for the next time he is sacrificing one of his MPs to the rumour mill.
