Prime Minister Trudeau and Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper tackle Foreign Affairs

Prime Minister Trudeau has been battling an 18-year old groping allegation that will probably follow him into the 2019 elections. While he was in Regina on Sunday talking to Canadian Steelworkers, Prime Minister Trudeau was asked about the allegation in which he replied to the reporter, “he does not recall any “negative interactions” that day-CBC”.

The Incident happened in 2000 at a charity event dressed as a music festival for an Avalanche Foundation. The lady in question later, a reporter, went on to write an editorial about the encounter with Trudeau in which she says she felt blatantly “disrespected”.

A few days after the festival, an unsigned editorial appeared in the Creston Valley Advance which alleged Trudeau, who was 28-years-old at the time and not involved in politics, had apologized to the reporter in question.

It also quoted him as saying “I would not have been so forward” had he known she was a reporter.

The article did not name the journalist and did not provide further details about the alleged incident.

Broadcaster CBC on Monday said it had contacted the journalist, but she did not wish to be named and did not want to be associated with coverage of the story.-News 18

While in Regina, Trudeau also addressed the tariff’s that have caused issues between the Prime Minister and the President of the United States Donald Trump.

“I’m glad to be here to remind everyone that Canadians stand up for each other,” he said at the park and pool by the Evraz steel mill Sunday afternoon. “That’s what we do and I’m glad to do it.”

Trudeau has been visiting Canadian workers as his government hits back against U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum. Canada Day on Sunday was the very day Canada’s countermeasures took effect, making it more expensive to import 235 American products.-LeaderPost

Former Prime Minister Stephen Harper seems to also still have business with the United States as he was seen leaving the West Wing on Monday.

Harper was expected to meet with Larry Kudlow — the director of the National Economic Council and U.S. President Donald Trump’s go-to economic adviser — and John Bolton, the president’s national security adviser, according to multiple sources who spoke to CBC News on the condition of anonymity.

An Associated Press photographer snapped a photo of the former Conservative leader leaving the White House, but neither Harper’s team nor the U.S. administration has responded to CBC’s requests for comment about what happened during Monday’s trip to Washington.-CBC
