FAST FIVE: Shocking Yearbook Photo Shows Justin Trudeau Wearing 'Brownface'

Published by on

Ralph Northam earlier this year, a photo depicting Trudeau in 'brownface' (he was reportedly dressed as an Arab for an 'Arabian Nights' theme party) was published by Time Magazine Wednesday evening.

The photo was taken in 2001 while Trudeau was teaching at an elite private school.

This couldn't have come at a worse time for Trudeau: His Liberal Party is neck-and-neck in the polls with their Conservative rivals ahead of what's expected to be a close federal election next month.

The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher.

Earlier this month, TIME obtained a copy of the yearbook, The View, with the photograph of Trudeau in brownface from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community.
