Woman Says Trudeau Apologized after Encounter in 2000

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — A former newspaper reporter confirms that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized to her after what she says was an inappropriate encounter nearly two decades ago.

Rose Knight also confirms she is the reporter who was referred to in an editorial 18 years ago in the Creston Valley Advance that said she was groped by Trudeau while covering a music festival in British Columbia.

She said in a statement Friday that she doesn't plan to take the matter further.

She wrote: "I enjoyed my career as a reporter, but it ended a long time ago. I avoided issuing a statement earlier out of concern for my and my family's privacy."

Trudeau said Friday that he respects Knight's decision to speak out but remembers the encounter with her differently.
