I believe most Canadians support and understand that the Prime Minister would enjoy an exotic vacation to a warmer climate not unlike many Canadians often do so why is this current vacation a controversy? The answer is a tad more complex than one might expect.
In Canadian public office we have very strict rules that limit and restrict financial benefits that a Minister of the Crown can accept and directly benefit from. These restrictions also include gifts that cannot be legally accepted from any registered lobbyist.
Obviously gifts have a momentary value and must be disclosed and this includes the value of accepting a stay at an exotic Bahamas private island as has been now revealed was the vacation destination of Prime Minister Trudeau.
On a related theme the private island where the Trudeau family vacationed happens to be owned by the Aga Khan who in turn is the head of an organization that is registered to lobby the Trudeau Liberal Government.
Following the vacation controversy the Prime Minister also announced a cabinet shuffle that will see the departure of the following Ministers: The following existing Ministers were also shuffled into new portfolios: My take on this shuffle is mixed. Government experience is critically important in a cabinet and the loss of veteran Ministers such as McCallum and Dion will no doubt be felt.
At the same time adding fresh blood is not necessarily a bad thing and given the failure to date for the Liberal fiscal plan to reap the promised benefits some new ideas at the cabinet table may be welcome.
A Cabinet shuffle is never an easy task for any leader and time will tell if these changes will help reverse the current direction. It is important to remember that citizens run for public office in order to help build stronger communities and federally a stronger Canada.
I know that MPs from all parties are concerned at the current economic direction Canada is heading in and I believe we will continue to work diligently in towards constructive solutions.
I would also like to extend an invitation to come and meet with me.
