Yesterday, provincial New Democrat MLA Maurine Karagianis wondered aloud why government relations consultant Michael Geoghegan can report to have a "high level of access to decision-makers and opinion leaders within the government" which he uses "get results that others can't" even though he's not registered as a lobbyist. But, in an interview with your humble organ, Mr. Geoghegan explained he recently tried to get a hold of the lobbyist registrar: "I phoned twice and emailed them last week and have yet to hear from a living person in that department. Is anyone still working there? Cause I'm singularly unimpressed with their inability to get back to anyone who leaves a message with them."
