Woman who accused Justin Trudeau of groping breaks her silence

(Townhall) While on tour to celebrate Canada Day this past Sunday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denied groping a female reporter who tried to interview him nearly two decades ago at the 2000 Kokanee Summit festival. "The incident referred to in the editorial did occur, as reported", she said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faces questions from reporters following his meeting with Ontario Premier Doug Ford at the Ontario Legislature, in Toronto on Thursday, July 5, 2018.

The incident, detailed in an editorial in the Creston Valley Advance newspaper in 2000, in which Trudeau allegedly groped a reporter, "did occur, as reported", Rose Knight, the reporter in question said in a statement to CBC News.

The woman said she felt "blatantly disrespected" at the time, though the story didn't offer many specifics about the incident, according to The Guardian.

Now frozen, these "have a very high chance to establish a pregnancy once implanted into a surrogate mother", said Hildebrandt. The key question of whether scientists can produce pure northern white rhino embryos using this technique remains unanswered.

Trudeau says he has been reflecting a lot about the incident in recent weeks, since an 18-year-old editorial from the Creston Valley Advance newspaper surfaced describing how the then-28-year-old Trudeau apologized for inappropriately touching a female reporter.

"I did not pursue the incident at the time and will not be pursuing the incident further", she said in the statement.

The Canadian Press has made efforts to speak to the other person involved in the alleged 2000 incident in Creston, B.C., but those efforts have so far been unsuccessful.

"I don't want to speak for her, I don't want to presume how she feels now", Trudeau said. But he said that he did apologize to the woman "in the moment", but was confident he hadn't acted inappropriately.

"I think people understand that every situation is different and we have to reflect and take seriously every situation on a case-by-case basis and that's exactly what we're endeavouring to do in any range of situations that come forward", he said.

That August Trudeau attended the Kokanee Summit festival, an event held by a local brewery, to accept a donation of $18,500 towards his family's campaign to build a new public backcountry cabin in the nearby provincial park in memory of his brother Michel, who died there in 1998 after an avalanche swept him into a lake while skiing. "I had a good day that day", Trudeau told reporters in Regina, Saskatchewan. Trudeau is the son of late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. After removing Kent Hehr from the cabinet for similar allegations, Trudeau himself may be fighting for his political career.

Trudeau was asked about Knight's statement while in Calgary today for an investment announcement.

Trudeau said Friday that he respects Knight's decision but remembers the encounter with her differently. The article also says Trudeau apologized, saying "I'm sorry". "Well, I'm sure Harvey Weinstein said that he couldn't recall things either", Parliament Member Michelle Rempel told the Huffington Post Canada.
