Whose going to believe the Princeling when he says he wants to meet with the people after spending the holiday season with a billionaire on his private island, Bell Island , down south?
This is the billionaire whose foundation gets millions of dollars for his foundation for international development work from the Federal Government.
Oh, the Princeling is not going to Davos or President’s Trump’s inauguration ? He wants to tour and meet the people.
Well , lets get a few things straight. A lot of people have already checked out of Davos . The gabfest is getting a little tired and really irrelevant given that it talks and talks and talks. As for Trump’s inauguration , I suspect the dear Princeling realizes he won’t be the center of attention as he was on that Private Island in the Caribbean .
I have a Island for him called Bell Island . It’s not in the Caribbean. Its in Conception Bay, Newfoundland. Now , there he could meet with real people.
Here’s a CTV story on the matter:
‘Conservative leadership candidate Andrew Scheer says he’s written to Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson to request a probe into Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s vacation at a private island owned by the Aga Khan.
In a press release Monday, Scheer referred to Trudeau’s stay on the island as a gift, and says he’s asked Dawson to examine whether accepting the accommodation violated the Conflict of Interest Act.
Trudeau’s office confirmed last Friday that he, his family and some friends stayed on Bell Island during their vacation in the Bahamas.
Bell Island is owned by the Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of the world’s 15 million Ismaili Muslims. His Canadian foundation, the Aga Khan Foundation of Canada, receives tens of millions of dollars a year from the Canadian government for international development work.
A spokesman for Trudeau didn’t respond last Friday, to a CTVNews.ca inquiry as to whether Trudeau cleared the holiday with Dawson before accepting it. He pointed out the Aga Khan is a long-time friend of the Trudeau family. The religious leader was an honourary pallbearer at the funeral of Trudeau’s father, former prime minister Pierre Trudeau.
Scheer says he takes the rules for MPs very seriously.
“The prime minister of Canada must be held to the highest standard, which is why I have called for this investigation,” Scheer said in the release.
A spokeswoman for the Aga Khan Foundation of Canada didn’t respond Friday to a request for comment.’
