I just can't warm to Justin Trudeau, there's an arrogance there.

Anyway, he's in a spot a bother. Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson is investigating whether Trudeau breached ethics laws in receiving a free Bahamas vacation and in using the Aga Khan’s helicopter to fly to his private island.

"Trudeau and his family, as well as a Liberal MP and the president of the party and their spouses, stayed at the Aga Khan’s home on Bell Island in the Bahamas for a post-Christmas vacation."

The thing is, the Aga Khan’s foundation has received hundreds of millions of dollars from the Canadian government to promote development and other projects in several countries and is registered as a lobbyist.

Ethics probe opened into Justin Trudeau's lavish island holiday

This chap is all about openness, transparency and accountability.

Whatever it is I hope it is truly serious.

Trudeau always struck me as a classic media creation - every classic left-liberal button pressed, son of a trendy politician from the 1970's whose uselessness has been conveniently forgotten about, admirer of Obama, pro-immigration, you name it. I suspect he will be a one-term wonder while the Tories reorganize themselves.

Trudeau gets found out. In this cases the consequences are minor.

When Trudeau gets found out to have no clue what he is doing, in charge if a govrrnment, the consequences will no longer be minor !

The free posh holiday is the least if Canada's concerns. Bear in mind that this is normal in the Trudeau govrrnment. One of his ministers went on a paid junket to California to appear on a TV show -where Bill Maher exposed her as clueless. And she bulldozed right through the criticism.

Trudeau is a celebrity politician who represents the description of "a bug in search of a windshield".

Disaster on the horizon. Borrowing

Monsieur Trudeau is a self proclaimed feminist committed to the repeal of the anti sex worker/anti sex work laws introduced by Harpers' Nutters! That alone makes him a very good guy!

Irish Canadians have traditionally been Liberal Voters in Canada!

Of more consequence perhaps is the free trips Whako Jacko Lynch used to get!

Nah, they'll be too busy giving us a preview of the Armageddon unfolding because of Trump. Trudeau will be a liberal hero, a voice of reason, beacon of progress, all that.

Not to mention the dodgy arms deals with Saudi Arabia. So not that feminist.

I despise Trudeau who admires Fidel Castro, hopefully If true these allegations are so serious that he quits.

He trades a little too heavily on contrasts - specifically:
- the contrast with his predecessor
- the contrast with the ongoing circus/zoo in the country to his south.

Did Trudeau advise the Saudis on the condition of LGBT citizens in the KSA before proceeding ?

Does he? Maybe he's not as shallow as I thought.
