Blackface scandal won’t budge McKenna: boss’ record solid on “diversity and inclusion”
After years pontificating about diversity and rejecting racism, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in blackface, as recently as his 29th year on Planet Earth, should not diminish all he has done for “diversity and inclusion” says Environment Minister Catherine McKenna.
“Did the prime minister make a mistake? Yes. And it was really important that he immediately acknowledged that,” McKenna told reporters at a Thursday morning campaign event in the capital, where she promised refurbishment of a disused, rusty train bridge for bicycle traffic across Ottawa River.
