aga khan

Tories want him to answer for rule-breaking visits to the Aga Khan's island.
There has been a distilled media narrative involving partisan politics when mentioning him. Lost in all the noise is his incredible humanitarian legacy.
The group says it's trying to stop an "unethical reign of error."
The ceremony had been delayed by the 2014 Parliament Hill attack.
In light of the prime minister's recent visit with the Aga Khan, a lot of people are asking questions about who the Aga Khan is and what his objectives are. This is a real scandal which raises real questions about Justin Trudeau's ethics. It in no way detracts from the charitable work of the Aga Khan. This scandal is about the prime minister's actions, not the Aga Khan's.
Recently, Justin Trudeau and his family took-up an offer from the Aga Khan to join him on his private island in the Bahamas. They were able to escape the cold, but clearly not the controversy. This whole thing has rubbed many people in Parliament, and across the country the wrong way. People have grabbed their metaphorical pitchforks and the ethics commission is now investigating. Sure, without context it seems as though this is just another lobbyist using wealth and influence to sway things in his favour, but if you actually want truth, context is everything.
Did Trudeau violate the Conflict of Interest Act?
