  1. So sad the greeds of corruption and politics jpont ventures. This man his a Ismaelis musliim leader of 145 millions supporters. He lives in France the difference his in the reincarnation beliefs ans sometimes esoteric accointances. This man ahas a private fortune of 13 billions. this philantropist known for leasures and taste of luxury things and also communication of muslim belifs and help. By connecting his whealth wuth politicians accouintances he manages to be there silent partner in rebuilding infrastructires in meadle east and around the world. this man bought a private islanfd called Bell isle of Bahamas for around 100 million and built a doak for attending the island of 20 million for his 120 foot boat. Receiving and enterteining people often for evident purposes. So Prime Minister Trudeau went . So has before the King of Spain and many others. The thing his why? Maybe a 310 million donations of Canada could be the answer since 2004 .6 his ethical ? his it a conflict of interest? I remeber in Quebec a man called Tony Accurso wuth a 119 boat of 25 million r3eceiving guest. There whas a Commission and inquiry …..lots of people got arrested afterwards. Maybe Canada should think about that? Merci beaucoup je suis de Laval au Québec. See you!

  2. Sad to see all the money serving has a tool for structuring needs of politicians and greeds of corrupted and ongoing fling flang between abusor and bling bling of cash register from abused. This man called Kamer of rurle Aga Khan wuch by the way not from Genghis Khan his a pahilantropist billionaire wich fortune his estimated around 13 billions. This ismaelite muslim lives in France he ha around 15 millions followers…wich difference by the way in thinkink that reincarnation could be. So therefore this man has a little isle Bell in the Bahamas of 100 million he arranged dthe dook for 20 millions cause his little boat of 120 feet his the only way he could invie people like the King of Spain or other useful guest for lets say friendship such has prime Minister Trudeau. the country has given the fondation Aga Khan u guess of Canada (the main one his in Oslo ) 310 millions since 2004. A great humanitary rebuilt of mosquee and infrastructures un the middle East.By the way in Quebec there ehas a man inviting people on his 25 million boat (just 1 foot less)than Kamer boat which starded a Commission inquiry because the invitations corrupted the guests. Whas it a ehcical mistake or other …i leave you the final verdict….Merci beaucoup je suis de ville de Laval. I am french canadian. a bientôt!

  3. Friends with Castro , friends with this guy … to bad they killed his good friend Osama Bin Ladin …

  4. It never ceases to amaze me when I hear these naive people supporting muslims. Check out the situation in europe and the UK. This guys father was the same with the muslims and communists. He refused to serve in WWll. He has no life experience and he was voted for. He will continue to bring in Muslims to vote for him. No government should be allowed to make these kind decisions with out consulting the people and no one who’s father was born here should be allowed to vote.

  5. I guess he will enjoy his “Flicker of Fame” while he can…once he is out of office all his “Friends” will be saying “Trudud??…… who??????”

  6. Anther Oboomba and Clinton brownie and UN puppet.

  7. No question who this “DOLT” supports, explains why he wants to import so many “REFUGEES”……..

  8. He can vaca with the man on the moon how come he needs to donate tax payers money 🤔🤔🤔

  9. Princess Trudeau is a joke

  10. I am getting awfully tired of the fake news media and the Ethics Commissioner failing to question the activities of this boy king. The “pay to play” and “foreign influences” that have occurred dressed up as fund raisers needs to have a Federal Court review…..Time for our opposition parties to start demanding action on behalf of the other half of this country not drinking the koolaid-aid.

  11. trudeau maybe es embracing the muslim religione.By doing thatwiill have many folloers all over the World ,is dream!

  12. i wonder how long his dumbness will avoid parliament to not answer questions about this?

  13. Trudeau and his fake Father pierre as well as his REAL Father Fidel Castro are scum traitors to Canada.

  14. He should be slammed for vacationing 10 times in one year on the tax payers dollar. He should be slammed for giving away the tax payers money frivolously to anyone and everyone other than Canadians. He should be slammed for not doing anything about job creation. He should be slammed for raising taxes. He should be slammed for creating new taxes. He should be slammed for accepting a job he has no idea how to do…

  15. JT is as crooked as Hillary Clinton. It must be a liberal trait.

  16. Well there you have it. One of the first examples of muslims trying to pressure a Canadian P.M because of there hate. And it will only get worse because they cry and wine about everything. Political islam is fighting itself and we are getting dragged down.

  17. my worry for the day is — What kind of ear talk has been done –muslim to muslim —

  18. He’s giving quebec to the Muslims. And your all sitting there watching it….Do SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!!

  19. Trudeau voter how do you like I’m now he live like king and you dont

  20. He’s making friends with everybody but us Canadians

  21. We should be concerned that he accepted a gift from a registered lobbyist. He is not supposed to accept “gifts” as they are dangerously close to bribes. More. Pay to play.

  22. All the gullable dummies that voted for this fool. . They had to stop Harper but didn’t have a clue on what they were stopping him from.
