    He regrets it NOW because his political position is on the line. He hoped no one uncovered his nasty racist behavior when he wore blackface in 2001…IN A MODERN WORLD OF PROGRESSION, yet he lies saying, "I didn't know." No, it's more like he didn't CARE. He deserves no respect AND should be held accountable.

    Men have a form of godliness, a vain and false sense of spirituality instead if trusting in the word. So, to help you out I'll offer you a red, blue, and green pill. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 says strong delusion, if it is anything like Isaiah 45:3-7 then you may want to reconsider that you are indeed singing "future" wicked,wicked,wicked , some tune about sleeping with her psycho? Now, the good, phillipians 3:21 Glory fits, a new body. Hebrews 1:4 Jesus is made better than the angels. And we know the story of Sodom and Ghommora with the angels. However, today there is also Matthew 19:9-12 for gays being that are modern advancements like indoor plumbing and detailed hygeine techniques holy Eunuch is suitable and very much in line with transgender healthcare. Now, the appeal to the Antichrist is he doesn't like women, where he has 10 KINGS under him, no queens, except the harlot of Babylon which he will eat as a canabal. Acts 8 describes how Christ will reign forever. I mock those who are considered wise and are often wrong, because they are caught in their folly, not sin, but a wrong answer, and they are bumptious. Strong drink to the wise and heavy hearted proverbs 31:6-7. God rocks womanhood comparable to Queen Rania Isaiah 47:3. Eunuch brook.

    OMG, it really sad for him and the country as a whole. This is a black eye to the image of the country because this is not only him this is affecting right now but all also Canad's international image. People outside Canada do not imagine Canada in that way at all. I myself as a black person cannot think of Justin Trudeau that way. I find it difficult to put him in that level, I still cannot believe it, at first, I thought this was a prank. Right now, is almost like someone you look up to, some celebrity or sport personally you love so much, then all of sudden there goes that bombshell news about him or her your face, it would just live you with that disappointment and devastation, that is exactly the state I am in right now.
    However, I love Canada. this is a country that has played a positive role in the lives of many people of African descents going back all the way in the days of slavery. This is a country where African slaves who ran away from their slave masters from the South would run up north and escaped to Cannada as became free salves or free people. Not to forget the role Canada played to fighting against the racist apartheid system in South Africa.
    Up to this day, Canada continues to well come Africans in this country even those who are running from Trump's immigration policies from America.
    My hope is. every Canadian would find a place in their heart to forgive him. The young Trudeau of 20 Years ago with those mistakes is different from the current Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister of this great country CANADA.
    MY ONLY QUESTION IS WHY DID THE TIME MAGAZINE WAITED UNTIL ELECTION SEASON IN CANADA TO PUBLISHED THIS PHOTOS, DO THEY THINK THIS WOULD AFFECT THE OUTCOME OF THE CANADIAN FEDERAL ELCTIONS? DOES THE TIME MAGAZINE HAVE AN AGENDA OF THEIR OWN?
