Justin Trudeau insists he’s not the man today who he was years ago, when photos and videos were taken of him in racist costumes.
The Liberal leader acknowledges, however, that he had a “massive blind spot” about how wearing blackface could be so hurtful.
Trudeau says he was aware of two of them, and he’s never spoken about them because he was embarrassed.
He repeated his apology to Canadians for his past behaviour Thursday afternoon, after first issuing one late last night after the first photo was published.
He says he’s spent his political career trying to counter intolerance and racism and hopes that people he’s offended still can see him as an ally in that fight.
