Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke to CBC Nova Scotia Mainstreet host Bob Murphy on Monday afternoon, shortly before heading to an event at the Dartmouth Sportsplex.  He spoke about his family vacation on a private island … Here is that conversation, edited for length and clarity … 

CBC: Would you take that same trip to the Aga Khan’s private island again?

TRUDEAU: This was our family vacation and it was with someone who has known me since I was a toddler and been a long-time friend of the family. But of course I’m happy to take all of the questions that the conflict of interest commissioner might have. I think it’s important to be able to demonstrate openness and transparency, and that’s what people expect from the government.

CBC: Why didn’t you call the ethics commissioner beforehand?

TRUDEAU: We’re going to have all sorts of conversations with her, I’m sure, in the coming days and all this will be ironed out.  

*MORBNOTE I ; Notice how Pete Jr. avoided answering the question … Mindlessly and self indulgent thinking he’s above that nonsense of following the laws of HIS kingdom !!! …  

TRUDEAU continues ; It was a family vacation and we were focused on that. I was glad to have a little time with my family and a long time friend.

CBC: Have you read the Conflict of Interest Act?

TRUDEAU: Of course. * MORBNOTE II ; Obviously not ASSHOLE !!! … Why pompously state ‘ Of course ‘ ?!!! …

CBC: The section of the act about travel has just one sentence and it specifically forbids travel on private aircraft.

The relevant section: No minister of the Crown, minister of state or parliamentary secretary, no member of his or her family and no ministerial adviser or ministerial staff shall accept travel on non-commercial chartered or private aircraft for any purpose unless required in his or her capacity as a public office holder or in exceptional circumstances or with the prior approval of the commissioner.

TRUDEAU: Yeah. And these are exactly the kinds of questions that the conflict of interest commissioner is going to be getting into and that’s exactly why we have an important accountability level in government that I’m glad to be participating with. 

*Final MORBNOTE ; I can just see him grinning while spewing this evasive BULLSHIT !!!! … I think Canada is ripe for its’ first Prime Ministerial Assassination !!! …
