Canada’s Prime Minister & Family To Vacation In Jamaica After Christmas


After Christmas, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family will spend a week’s vacation in Jamaica.

Trudeau’s office announced the trip, saying he would be in touch with Ottawa and continue getting briefings and updates regarding matters of concern while in Jamaica.

The Prime Minister’s Office also explained that it consulted with the federal ethics commissioner to ensure the trip complies with regulations.

The office disclosed that despite being a personal travel vacation, multiple protocols would be in place for Trudeau’s travel.

The prime minister must fly on a Royal Canadian Air Force plane for security reasons, even for personal travel.

In 2017, Trudeau apologised for his actions after the federal ethics watchdog found he had violated some provisions of the Conflict of Interest Act when he vacationed on a private island in the Bahamas owned by a close friend, the Aga Khan, from December 26, 2016, to January 4, 2017.

The Aga Khan is a philanthropist and spiritual leader of the Shia Ismaili religion.
