    Trudeau groping "did occur as reported"

    As Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continued to face questions Friday over an alleged groping incident from 18 years ago, the woman who initially made the allegation broke her recent silence, saying the incident “did occur as reported.”

    In a statement offering the caveat that she represents no organization, media outlet or political movement, and that she has no intention of saying anything further, the woman said she is standing by the account of the events outlined in an August 2000 editorial published in a small-town B.C. newspaper that alleged Trudeau “groped” and “inappropriately handled” her.

    “I issue this statement reluctantly in response to mounting media pressure,” the woman said in the statement, which CBC published late Friday afternoon. While her name was included in the statement as CBC published it, the Post is still choosing not to name her out of respect for her request for privacy. She has previously declined the Post’s requests for comment.

    In August 2000, Trudeau, then 28 years old and still years from launching his career in politics, attended a music festival in Creston, B.C. to accept a donation towards a the construction of a public backcountry lodge to be built in the nearby provincial park where his brother Michel had died two years earlier after being swept into a lake by an avalanche while skiing.

    “I was a reporter for the Creston Valley Advance from 1999 through 2001,” the woman’s statement said. “I was assigned to cover the August 2000 Creston music festival by my employer and was the reporter referred to in the editorial.

    “The incident referred to in the editorial did occur as reported. Mr. Trudeau did apologize the next day. I did not pursue the incident at the time and will not be pursuing the incident further. I have had no subsequent contact with Mr. Trudeau before or after he became prime minister.”

    Though she did not address it in the statement, the Post has learned the woman wrote the original editorial herself.

    The woman said she had not responded to media requests until now out of concern for her and her family’s privacy. “The debate, if it continues, will continue without my involvement,” she wrote.

    What a mess...

    You know, in a discussion on this in a previous thread, I did say, well, he was a young man...

    But, I am rethinking that, honestly. 28 is not a young man. I'm 29 now. By a year ago, I was already a married man with a family and a job. 28 is not a teenager. By 28, you are a mature adult, and you should have a brain developed enough to tell you how to behave properly...

    This is disappointing on many levels...

    She's shown no proof. In the video you provided he said he did nothing inappropriate. What is that if not a denial?

    It depends on the man. Some men suffer from "delayed adolescence" I know 40 year old men who one would think they are really 15 years old by the way they act and talk. Trudeau is a good leader and a decent man...don't paint him the same as Trump for something he did when he was single and in his twenties. Most men will misread a message by a woman at that age. Also, you have to consider that he is a VERY attractive man and most likely women came easy to him.

    I don't believe it.

    Not this guy.

    Now, if they wanted to get someone to slander him with false accusations they should have had a man accuse him of groping.

    That would be much more believable.

    I have my doubts about this story. If he groped a dude, I would believe it.

    Justin is beautiful. This is what he probably looked like at 28.
