PM should repay taxpayers for trip to Aga Khan's private island: opposition

"I'm sorry I didn't, and in the future I will be clearing all my family vacations with the commissioner", said Trudeau yesterday, during a press conference held in response to the report's findings. Why is he not being sanctioned in the House of Commons?

Dawson found that the Trudeaus' visit to the island-and the prime minister hopping aboard the Aga Khan's private helicopter to get there-broke sections of the Conflict of Interest Act that prohibits a minister or any member of their family from accepting gifts or "advantages" that could reasonably be seen as influencing government decisions. "I should have taken precautions, including my family vacation".

"There is no way that could have been true", Mr. Cullen said of the Prime Minister's statements in the House.

According to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the start day for legal cannabis in Canada is vaguely set for "next summer" and not July 1st like everyone had originally thought.

The outgoing ethics commissioner's long-awaited report suggests that Trudeau could have avoided this outcome had he come to her before going on the trip that began on December 26, 2016.

Saakashvili released by Ukrainian court
Saakashvili was the key figure of the 2003 Rose Revolution protests that forced Eduard Shevardnadze to resign the presidency. The demonstrators smashed the windows of a candy store belonging to Poroshenko's company, Roshen. "Bees can't oppose honey".

"As is the usual course, the Prime Minister reimbursed the costs of his, and his family's, flights to and from Nassau", PMO spokeswoman Chantal Gagnon said. "We will be proactively working with the office of the commissioner to ensure that there is no conflict of interest, no appearance of conflict of interest". Dawson began her investigation after receiving a letter this year from Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, who said the vacations constituted a gift.

The Aga Khan, a prominent philanthropist, has business ties with the Canadian government and there was "ongoing official business between the Government of Canada and the Aga Khan at the time each invitation was accepted", Dawson found.

Moreover, the prime minister should have recused himself from any discussions about funding for the Aga Khan's foundation. The Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner was created under the Federal Accountability Act.

Trudeau and his family also accepted gifts from the Aga Khan, unjustifiably used a non-commercial aircraft for the trip, and didn't arrange his private affairs ahead of the two trips, other ethics violations found int he report.

Commissioner Mary Dawson said Wednesday that Trudeau put himself "in a position to be able to advance some of the matters of interest to the Aga Khan", who is described by Forbes as "one of the world's richest royals" and is a revered religious figure of almost 15 million Ismaili Muslims around the world.
