Justin Trudeau has been accused of allegedly groping a woman at a music festival in Creson, British Colombia,18 years ago. 

The woman, who has not been named but worked as a reporter at the time, alleges that the current Canadian Prime Minister 'blatantly disrespected' and 'inappropriately handled' the woman at the event in the year 2000. 

The allegations were made in The Creston local newspaper at the time, and recently resurfaced online. 

Speaking at an event, the Prime Minister was asked about the alleged incident. 

'I remember that day in Creston well,' he replied.

'I had a good day that day; I don't remember any negative interactions that day at all.'

His office have reiterated his stance:

'As the Prime Minister has said before, he has always been very careful to treat everyone with respect.'

'His first experiences with activism were on the issue of sexual assault at McGill (University), and he knows the importance of being thoughtful and respectful,' the Prime Minister's office told CNN. 


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently came under fire because of a comment he made during a Q&A session at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Canada.

A young woman in the crowd asked him a question at the university regarding volunteering regulations.

Towards the end of her query, she said: 'Maternal love is the love that's going to change the future of mankind.'


Justin swiftly responded: 'We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind because it's more inclusive.'

'Exactly!' the woman then replied.

While the politician's interjection garnered a round of applause from the audience, people on social media were not so receptive.

A number of people mocked his comment as 'PC culture gone mad'

The Canadian leader has long championed feminist causes, having the first gender-balanced cabinet in Canada and openly discussing how he's raising his kids to be feminists.

Some, however, thought that his 'peoplekind' interjection amounted to mansplaining.

The truth? Well, the father-of-three explained that it was just a bad joke gone awry.

We knew dad jokes could make us groan, but who knew they could spark controversy?

'You all know that I don’t necessarily have the best of track records on jokes. I made a dumb joke a few days ago that seems to have gone a little viral,' the 46-year-old told reporters in Ottawa, according to Reuters.

'It played well in the room and in context. Out of context it doesn’t play so well and it’s a little reminder to me that I shouldn’t be making jokes even when I think they’re funny,' the prime minister concluded.


Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has urged Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, to liberalise Ireland's restrictive abortion laws.

The leaders met in Montreal yesterday to discuss a range of issues including human rights, and the controversial Eight Amendment.

“On the issue of reproductive rights, I shared our perspective that such rights are integral to women’s rights and they are human rights and I asked him to look at it as a fundamental human right and we had a good discussion,” he said. 

Mr Trudeau's advice comes after the hashtag #JustinformLeo went viral this weekend, as Irish women took to Twitter to ask the Canadian leader to discuss the issue of Ireland's abortion ban during the visit.

Following a successful meeting, the two leaders marched in the Montreal Pride parade yesterday afternoon.

Leo will now travel to Toronto where he is due to discuss growing trade, tourism, and investment between Ireland and Canada.


Leo Varadkar will kick off his three-day visit to Canada with a bilateral meeting before marching alongside Justin Trudeau in today's Montreal Pride parade.

The Taoiseach is then expected to travel to Toronto where he will discuss CETA and trade agreements between Ireland and Canada.

Ahead of the visit, supporters of the Repeal the Eight campaign started a viral hashtag #justinformleo, calling on the Canadian Prime Minister to approach the issue of Ireland's abortion ban, and educate Leo on the progressive Canadian system.

Ailbhe Smyth from the Coalition to Repeal the 8th said: "I would really like to see someone like Leo Varadkar would have an understanding that it is not enough to come out in favour of one aspect of human rights while completely ignoring another."

Leo is also expected to meet with business and tourism leaders and attend a reception with the Irish community in the city.



Women in Ireland continue to fight for their reproductive rights, but the Irish government has been slow to act on their call to action.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is in Canada this weekend to visit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and pro-choice women are calling on the leader to discuss the issue of Ireland's abortion ban while he's there. 

The hashtag #JustinformLeo is going viral this afternoon, as women take to Twitter to beseech the PM to tell the Taoiseach how they feel:


Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has made the cover of Rolling Stone and the whole world is swooning – well, most of us. 

Appearing on the front cover of the magazine's August issue, Justin is pictured looking seductively into the camera, next to the words –  'Why can't he be our president?'

Inside the pages, a glowing profile, written by Stephen Rodrick, proves that no one is safe from the Trudeau spell.

The writer starts by calling Trudeau “a progressive, rational, forward-thinking leader” who “overcame tragedy to become Canada’s prime minister”, such as the death of his younger brother, and father, former Prime Minster, Pierre Trudeau.

Roderick then began to make comparisons between Trudeau and Donald Trump's stances on issues such as abortion, climate change and Russia.

“Trump's son met with Russian nationals who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton. Trudeau's foreign minister is Chrystia Freeland, a Canadian of Ukrainian descent who is banned in Putin's Russia,” he writes.

“Justin Trudeau is trying to Make Canada Great Again. He is using, let us say, different methods.”

However, Justin did say that he and Trump have “a constructive working relationship” even though they disagree “on a whole bunch”.

He added that he would not go out of his way to "insult the guy or overreact or jump at everything he says (that) we might disagree with is not having a constructive relationship."

The traditionally music-focused magazine is no stranger to political features and has had a number of politicians on its front cover over the years, but few have sent the internet into a frenzy quite like Justin. 

However, not everyone was happy with Trudeau's cover.

Some US Twitter users made it clear they would not want Trudeau as their president. 



Leo Varadkar and Justin Trudeau broke the internet yesterday with their delightful show of bromance. 

The Prime Minister of Canda touched down in Ireland for a three day visit. 

The Taoiseach and Mr Trudeau sat down in the Dail to discuss international relations. 

Once the business talk was over and done with, the pair were seen showcasing their novelty socks and going for a jog in the stunning setting of Phoenix Park. 

Ireland has been called a 'thirsty nation' by the international press in the wake of the Canadian Prime Minister's visit, and here are a few of the best tweets that could be the reason:


The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has touched down in Dublin.

Justin is starting his official visit to Ireland today, after flying into Dublin Airport last night.

The PM will meet our Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, and President, Michael D. Higgins later today.

98fm report that they will all gather in Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park, where "issues of mutual interest" will be discussed.

He will then take a trip to Áras an Uachtaráin, where Mickey D will hold a special reception for him.

Throughout the day he will make many other visits, including one to the EPIC Ireland Emigration Museum in the Docklands.

Tonight, Justin will be Guest of Honour at an official dinner in Dublin Castle, before leaving early tomorrow morning.

Leo Varadkar previously said that Mr Trudeau has been a political role model for many years, and we're sure he's only delighted to meet him today.



The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, is set to visit Ireland next week, and we're all jumping for joy.

Our new Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, will host a meeting with Justin and it has been reported that they will discuss trade deals.

Leo has previously spoken about his admiration for Justin, and said in the Dáil today the he will be delighted to welcome Mr Trudeau and his family to Ireland next Tuesday.

In the past, Mr Varadkar said that he is a fan of the Canadian's work and noted that “we have a lot in common as countries."

Justin was the first to create a cabinet with an equal number of men and women in 2015.

Justin has recently been noted on social media as somewhat of a heart throb, however it's his work for his country that he's most commended for.
