Who Is Justin Trudeau?

Jusin Trudeau is Canadas Prime Mister, he was titled the role in 2015, and was leader of the Liberal Party since 2013. He was born on the 25th of December 1971 which makes him 48 years old. His wife is Sofie Trudeau, and his children are Ella-Grace Margaret Trudeau, Xavier James Trudeau and Hadrien Trudeau.

What did he do?

As our BNC lesson card said, Justin Trudeau wore brown face makeup to a party at his school dance, he was the teacher. It was an Arabian Nights themed gala, and he wore a turban, with his hands and nech covered. This happened in 2001, but was rememberd in a general election last year, 2019.

Why is what he did consider bad?

Many people in my class perticulaly have been debating whether this is acceptable or not. We discussed how back in 2001, this may have been considered okay, since Canada has chamged over the years, however, some people still thought that is was utterly unacceptable.They said it was racist while some said it was just a costume.

Personally, I think that this is unacceptable to do nowadays, but I can understand how it mah have been noraml to do in the past. As some people say, its like puttingon a costume, but if somebody did it now, I dont think they would be saying the same. Some people say it is still disgraceful , escepicaly since he was the teacher.

I think this was wrong, what do you think? Say your thought in the comments.

    In a lesson at school we learnt about lots of priministers and mistakes they made and we had to sort them into different categories, should get fired or get given a warning. We sorted Justin into the middle because it was a very hard decision to make. I, personally using my knowledge, thought he should have known better (because he is a priminister)than be racist so I thought that if there was a category called , pay a bill or be put on a trial, then I would sort him into one of these. Some people might think this is not right but still ok because he was going to a party, but others might think that this is completely unacceptable because that is really racist. If someone could please reply and tell me what actually happened to him I would be really grateful for that.

    Thanks for reading,

      Same with me because although he did something really bad, and it can still really hurt someones feeling it was a really tough decision to make and there were people who did even more offending "crimes".

    What he did was very bad I know that Justin Trudeau has a very nice heart and didnt mean to offend anybody and in his defence it was Arabian Theme and he was getting into the theme like most of us.And he is only human so he can make big mistakes plus he apologised which some people wont do so
    I hope this will change your mind on this so called scandal.
