I havn't supported his party in a few years, but I'll say this...
His government has done a lot to help Canadian families, and mine is right in there. I don't know what my wife and I would have done when our twins arrived, but they started the Child Benefit Program which distributes some cash to help out families that might fall behind during tough times. It's buckets more help than any conservative party did for Canadians on the West Coast.
This whole silly debacle won't sway me one bit when it comes to deciding who he really is.
Balls to whoever held onto those pictures.
I hope the plan fails, and people consider his more recent and truer merits as a person and Canadian.
Liberal candidate Randeep Sarai says he was "saddened" when the photos emerged. "For me, it's difficult to understand," he tell the BBC.
"The person in those photos from 20 years ago isn't the person that I've worked with the last four years. He has an impeccable record on promoting diversity, calling out intolerance and breaking down the barriers in this country for people who look like me."
He said he has accepted Mr Trudeau's apology.
We have yet to see how the election polling - which has had the two main parties neck and neck- is affected by this crisis.
But the Canadians that the BBC spoke to on the streets of Toronto and Ottawa on Thursday were mostly unmoved by the news.
It's a non-issue, said one, in sentiments that were echoed by others.

And Trudy says there is no place in Canada for racism. Ergo, he must resign and leave Canada.

Canadian pm and super woke dude Justin Trudeau has just been outed as wearing blackface to a party in his past
I will continue to say as long as he wasn’t intentionally disparaging black people I don’t this is a big deal at all
Even if he was an apology is fine by me.
I don’t want to see him lose his job over this because to me it’s not a big deal.
He is super woke, and the cancel culture he helps prop up has set the rules
Lucky for him like the nyt fact checker yesterday, he is on the left
If he was right wing, he would have already been forced to resign
