Well, the main one is that there's a loophole in the gifts rule for cabinet ministers: if it's a gift from a friend or family member, the gift is legal. Former ethics commissioner Mary Dawson interpreted that rule...in a way, you could say, taking into account the purpose of the act, which unfortunately she didn't do in a lot of other cases of preventing conflicts of interest. In that case she interpreted it to say that even though it says that a friend can give you a gift, if a friend is a lobbyist or is involved in dealings with the government, she's going to disallow the gift and say that it's prohibited. But technically, the law still says that if it's a friend, the gift is legal. If Prime Minister Trudeau had been able to overcome that hurdle of proving that the Aga Khan was actually his personal friend as opposed to an old family friend, then he would have been let off, possibly by a commissioner other than Mary Dawson at the time, who was saying, no, sorry, even if it was a friend, she was going to ignore the rule and apply it, taking into account the purpose of the act.
As she recommended out of that, gifts should simply be banned. I mean, yes, your family members can give you birthday gifts and holiday gifts, but other than that, gifts should just be banned.
