'I should have known better' - Trudeau

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologizes for wearing brownface makeup to a costume party in 2001, an image that could undermine his chances for re-election with less than five weeks to go before the national election.

'I should have known better' - Trudeau

"I should have known better then, but I didn't and I did it and I'm deeply sorry," Trudeau told reporters on his campaign plane in Halifax, Nova Scotia, after Time magazine published the image.

The image of a 29-year-old Trudeau with his face in dark make-up is a major challenge for a leader who often speaks about the need to fight racial discrimination and who has three prominent ministers of Indian descent in his cabinet.

Time said the image was provided by Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson earlier this month.

Adamson was part of the West Point Grey Academy community where Trudeau worked at the time, the magazine said.

The picture was in the Vancouver private school's yearbook.
