Liberal leader Justin Trudeau dropped the f-bomb during the opening ceremony of an annual charity boxing match in Gatineau, Que. Saturday night.
After being invited into the ring, Trudeau ducked under the ropes and took the microphone for a short speech where he enthusiastically used the adjective to describe his past experience in the ring two years ago against suspended Sen. Patrick Brazeau.
“I’m going tell you, there is no experience like stepping into this ring and measuring yourself. All the— your name, your fortune, your intelligence, your beauty none of that f—ing matters,” Trudeau said.
The crowd responded with a roar before Trudeau continued.
The Prime Minster’s Office told CTV, “This is yet another example of Justin Trudeau’s lack of judgment.”
In an email to the Ottawa Citizen, Trudeau’s spokesperson Kate Purchase, said: “He was speaking candidly as a passionate fan of boxing.”
Fight for the Cure is an annual boxing match to raise money for cancer research.
Trudeau found himself in a similar situation in Dec. 2011 when he referred to then-Environment Minister Peter Kent as “a piece of shit” during a heated question period in the House of Commons about the Kyoto Protocol.
