It's the last thing I needed to do at this time of the year. Stare at a picture of a lovely Caribbean island with all that light blue water and all those warm sandy beaches.
While freezing my butt off in Canada.
But unfortunately that's the Aga Khan's private island, Justin Trudeau and his family had a short holiday there last winter.
And our grubby Con media is trying to turn a slap on the wrist by the Ethics Commissioner into a huge scandal.
When it couldn't be more ratty or ridiculous.
The Ethics Commissioner has ruled that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau broke Canada's ethics law over two all-expenses-paid family trips to the Bahamas, rejecting the assertion his host was a close friend and dismissing his rationale for accepting helicopter flights to the private island.
Or more trivial.
Only in Canada would somebody question whether the Aga Khan was a close friend of Trudeau or not. When he has known him since he was a boy, and like Fidel Castro he was a pallbearer at his father's funeral.
As for using a helicopter to get to that island, that's also a manufactured controversy too petty for words.
It makes our parliament press gallery look like the Duchy of Grand Fenwick in the movie The Mouse That Roared.
Which as I told my Twitter followers, reminded me of how I felt about the way Rosemary Barton reacted to the scandal when it first broke...
And explains why she looked like a shabby Con rat jumping all over Trudeau yesterday in a most unseemly manner.

And with the same kind of heated indignation as Rona Ambrose exhibited when the "scandal" first broke and she fired off this tweet:
Only to be made to look like an absolute hypocrite.
Or a total idiot.
So this latest Aga Khan eruption is just more of the same, and even more evidence that while Canada is a big country, some of its people are really small.
I happen to believe that a Prime Minister of Canada has the right to vacation anywhere he or she chooses, and to get there by whatever way they like.
And it isn't as if others haven't taken advantage of the Aga Khan's hospitality.
So for the Con media to try to smear that well known philanthropist, only tells you how disgusting they are.
And what a fake scandal it is.
It's revealing that only a few hours after the story broke, it wasn't trending on Twitter or anywhere else, and although the dotards in the Con media were running around with their pants around their ankles, they were only stimulating themselves.
Most Canadians just couldn't care less.
Which is a warning to those who might seek to profit from this contrived scandalette,
The more you are seen trying to beat up on Justin Trudeau for no good reason, the more popular he becomes, as Andrew Scheer is already finding out.
As his polls go through the ground.
And will no doubt learn even more painful lessons, as Trudeau cruises to another crushing majority.
How small are some people in Canada? How scummy are the Cons and their bought media?
And how great is this Prime Minister...
