This is our prime minister, the lawbreaker

Five times he has broken the law and now onto his sixth.

The findings of the first Report of the Conflict Of Interest/Ethics Commissioner 2017

ONE – “I found that Mr. Trudeau, as Prime Minister, contravened section 11 of the Act when he or his family accepted the gifts of hospitality from the Aga Khan and the use of his private island in March and December, 2016.”

TWO AND THREE – “I found that Mr. Trudeau contravened section 21 of the Act when he did not recuse himself from discussions that provided an opportunity to improperly further the private interest associated with one of the institutions of the Aga Khan and that he contravened section 5 for failing to arrange his private affairs to avoid such an opportunity.”

FOUR – “Finally, I found that Mr. Trudeau contravened section 12 of the Act when his family travelled on non-commercial aircraft chartered by the Aga Khan in March 2016 and when he and his family travelled in the Aga Khan’s private helicopter in December 2016. The travel was not required in Mr. Trudeau’s official capacity as a public office holder and he did not seek my prior approval. Furthermore, I found that the circumstances were not exceptional for Mr. Trudeau in this case.”

Second Report of The Conflict of Interest /Ethics Commissioner 2019. 

FIVE – “For these reasons, I found that Mr. Trudeau used his position of authority over Ms. Wilson‑Raybould to seek to influence, both directly and indirectly, her decision on whether she should overrule the Director of Public Prosecutions' decision not to invite SNC-Lavalin to enter into negotiations towards a remediation agreement.”

“Therefore, I find that Mr. Trudeau contravened section 9 of the Act.”

And now The Prime Minister Does It Again – awards almost a billion dollars to his friends (his wife, mother, brother involved) and refuses to absent himself (second time, did it first time in First Commissioner Report, Aga Khan issue) in Cabinet concerning the decision. 

Does this person deserve to be Prime Minister?
