Carrying twins

More curiosity courtesy of the provincial government's lobbyist registry: back in July, Environics Communications Inc.'s Lisa Baiton and Laura Vallis registered to represent the interests of the Infertility Awareness Association of Canada - a charitable organization headquartered in Montreal. The reason: to discuss the "government policy on infertility" with Premier Gordon Campbell, Health Minister George Abbott, then Children and Family Development Minister Stan Hagen and Minister of State for Childcare Linda Reid. But, according to the registry, they aren't just lobbying on behalf of the association. Mesdames Baiton and Vallis are also doing government relations work for Serono Canada Inc. - a pharamceutical company that manufactures...yes, you guessed it..."innovative products to assist couples with infertility at every stage of reproductive cycle, from ovulation to early pregnancy, and to help them fulfill their dream of having a baby." Coochie, coochie coo! The following is a complete copy of those files.
