It's just the latest example of men harassing female journalists on the job.
CBC reporter Megan Batchelor was filming a live TV hit when a teen planted an unwanted kiss on her cheek and snapped a selfie, leading her to file a complaint with the RCMP.
Now 17-year-old Daniel Davies has identified himself as the culprit and apologized to Batchelor, CBC has reported.
"At the moment I thought it was kind of a joke, then I stepped in your shoes, that's when I kind of realized that it all was not a joke at all. That's your career — obviously it's also your body and you have complete control of that and without anyone else's consent, they do not have the right to do anything to anyone," Davies told Batchelor, according to CBC.
Batchelor has accepted the man's apology.
"Just hearing those words, it's exactly what I wanted to hear, and in all of this, I didn't want anyone to lose their job or get a criminal record, I just want people to take a second, and just think of the impact on that person. Just because I'm standing in front of a camera doesn't mean I don't have feelings and I'm not focused and I'm not trying to be a professional," Batchelor said.
The kissing incident at the Squamish Valley Music Festival came on the heels of a series of events that saw men yell "Fuck her right in the pussy" at female reporters on the air.
