Justin Trudeau Is In Big Trouble After Violating Canada's Ethics Code

Pages - Ethics Commissioner reports on investigation involving Prime Minister

In March, 2016, only Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and other family members went to the island, but not the Prime Minister.

"I take full responsibility for it".

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau's tropical island vacations and the private aircraft that got him there have landed him in hot water.

"It was a standing invitation from the Aga Khan and his daughter to spend some time on their island", he said.

Dawson noted that Trudeau did not discuss any government business with the Aga Khan or his representatives, nor did he debate or vote in parliament on any matters related to the Aga Khan or his institutions.

Dawson said the Aga Khan and his foundation were registered to lobby and Justin Trudeau didn't properly recuse himself on two occasions in May 2016 from government meetings about a 15 million Canadian dollar grant to the endowment fund of the Global Centre for Pluralism, where the Aga Khan is chairman of the board.

He said he considered the Aga Khan a close family friend and that's why he didn't think to run his trip by the ethics commissioner before going. This year, Mr. Trudeau and his family will go to the Prime Minister's official cottage at Harrington Lake and the Canadian Rockies.

NBC reportedly eyeing 'The Office' revival
Headlined by Steve Carell as Regional Manager Michael Scott for many seasons, it eventually turned the focus on other characters. The network declined to comment on reports that a " The Office " revival is in the works.

Trudeau and his family were joined on the December 2016 trip by Liberal MP and now Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O'Regan and his husband; as well as Liberal Party president Anna Gainey and her husband.

Her investigations showed that besides the Aga Khan's attendance at the funeral of his father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, in 2000, the younger Trudeau had no interactions with the Aga Khan between 1983 and the fall of 2013, a span of 30 years.

Trudeau and his family vacationed on the island during the holidays in late December 2016 into January this year.

Despite Dawson's findings, Trudeau insisted that he considers the Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of the world's Ismaili Muslims, a personal, long-time friend.

On both occasions, the report states that Trudeaus were told that the Aga Khan and his family "may or may not be present". Mr. Trudeau was well aware, given his previous stay on the island in 2014, that private transportation was needed to reach the Aga Khan's private island.

"Subsection 14 (1) of the Members' Code prohibits Members from accepting gifts or other benefits that might reasonably be seen to have been given to influence them in the exercise of an official power, duty or function", Dawson said. Some of the allegations of rule infractions referenced in those complaints were deemed not broken. She is also probing Finance Minister Bill Morneau's possible conflict of interest over his sponsorship of pension bill, C-27. She made a determination that he is not a family friend.

While the finding could tarnish Trudeau's popularity half-way into his mandate, he does not face any penalties.
