It looks like former New Democrat premier Dan Miller isn't just a senior counsel for National Public Relations Inc. He's also doing government relations work for the firm on behalf of one of the Liberal's biggest bankrollers. According to the provincial government's lobbyist registry, Mr. Miller is now "facilitating" mining giant Teck Cominco Ltd.'s "interests." As our astute readers know, that company has donated $558,115 to the Liberals between 2001 and 2005. The registry also indicates he has arranged meeting with Opposition leader Carole James for pipeline firm Enbridge Inc. That company contributed $29,645 to the Liberals over the same period. Meanwhile, Mr. Miller - who is perhaps best known for his stint as British Columbia's minister of energy and mines - continues to serve on the Campbell administration's British Columbia Competition Council.
