OTTAWA: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in major political trouble just weeks before facing voters, felled by a penchant for poor jokes and dressing up that have let him down before and are now raising accusations of racial insensitivity.

Trudeau, who has said he will not resign, said he did not realise at the time how offensive blackface was and asked Canadians for forgiveness. Liberal insiders say part of the issue is that Trudeau – who used to throw himself down stairs as a party trick when younger – does not always think twice before he tries to be funny.

In May 2016, as wildfires ripped through an Alberta oil-producing region, Trudeau opened a meeting with legislators by making a quip about the “Star Wars” movie franchise. A Liberal strategist who has worked on election campaigns said theatricality had long been part of the Trudeau image.
