The prime minister and his family flew to Nassau aboard a government jet in late December and then took the Aga Khan’s private helicopter to his private islander in the Bahamas.
Commissioner Mary Dawson is expressing concern about two potential breaches:  the face the Aga Khan’s foundation lobbies the federal government and the use of the private helicopter.
The foundation’s received $300-million in Canadian international development funds and is a registered lobbyist with the foreign affairs department. 
Trudeau admits to not seeking the commissioner’s sign-off but believes he did nothing unethical.
And the Prime Minister’s Office has issued a statement saying it’s happy to answer any of her questions.
