Topless photos with Trudeau cause Internet commotion


OTTAWA— A photo of Justin Trudeau standing next to a bare-breasted woman has caused a social media stir. It’s a photo op that some politician­s — seeking to carefully stagemanag­e their image — might take a pass on. But in the photo that popped up on Twitter this week, the grinning Trudeau doesn’t seem like a reluctant participan­t.

Kate Purchase, a spokespers­on for Trudeau, didn’t question the authentici­ty of the photo, saying that it was taken at the Toronto Pride parade at some point in the last few years.

“Mr. Trudeau obliges (thousands) of Canadians who ask for photos . . . We don’t screen people before they meet Mr. Trudeau — unlike other parties,” Purchase said in an email.
