Trudeau apologizes for 'brownface' photo

A yearbook photo of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wearing "brownface" makeup at a 2001 costume party detonated Wednesday on the federal campaign trail. Time magazine has posted the photo, which it says was published in the yearbook from the West Point Grey Academy, a private school in Vancouver, B.C., where Trudeau worked as a teacher before entering politics. Trudeau delivered an apology during an emergency news conference on board the Liberal party's campaign plane. (The Canadian Press)
