The photographs were taken in the framework of a costume party, whose theme was “The Arabian Nights” and published in the yearbook 2001 from the Academia West Point Gray, British Columbia private school, where Trudeau served as a teacher.
The second scandal-causing image was taken when Trudeau was a high school student and dressed up as the Jamaican Harry Belafonte to perform the song known as "El Calipso Bananero" in a talent show.. In the photography, Justin is seen again with dark makeup on his face and an afro as a wig.
