Prime Minister Justin Trudeau publicly lambasted the Montreal Canadiens on drafting a hockey player who shared sexually explicit photos of a woman without her consent. This despite being credibly accused of sexual misconduct himself. “As a life-long Habs fan, I am deeply disappointed by the decision,” Trudeau said in a press conference Tuesday. “I think it was a lack of judgment by the Canadiens organization. I think they have a lot of explaining to do to Montrealers and fans right across the country,” adding that they showed a “lack of judgment” by drafting Logan Mailloux for its first-round pick in Friday’s entry draft. Mailloux, who was 17 at the time, was fined for breaking Swedish law after distributing photos of a sexual encounter without the explicit consent of the woman involved. She went to the police and Mailloux was charged with invasion of privacy and defamation, according to the Montreal Gazette. In August of 2000, Trudeau, who was 28 at the time, is alleged to have groped former journalist Rose Knight at the Kokanee Summit in Creston, BC.
