Survey: Justin Trudeau tops list in trustworthiness

Vancouver Sun:
... One third of Vancouverites had confidence in Mulcair and four out of 10 trusted Trudeau— making him the poll’s most trusted politician ....
This survey was obviously taken before the revelations that Justin Trudeau has been soaking charities and schools $10K-$20K a pop for speaking engagements while sitting as an MP, skipping parliament to do so. 

Collecting speakers' fees while a sitting MP may be within the Ethics Commissioner's rules but most if not all other MP's speak to charities and schools all the time, at no charge, as part of their duty as parliamentarians. If Justin Trudeau's disgraceful practices fall within the ethics rulebook for MP's then that rulebook obviously needs a serious re-write.
