‘…I Did Not Act Inappropriately,’ Justin Trudeau Says Amid Groping Allegation

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a self-described feminist, is now fielding questions about what happened with a female reporter on a summer day in 2000.

“I’ve been reflecting very carefully on what I remember from that incident almost 20 years ago and again… I feel I am confident that I did not act inappropriately,” he told reporters in Toronto on Thursday.

The accusation — that he groped a female reporter on assignment — traces back to a music festival which he attended in support of avalanche safety. He joined the cause after his brother Michel died while skiing in 1998.
