Meanwhile, at the next stop

Earlier, we reported Burrard Communications Inc. associate Forrest Parlee had registered to lobby the provincial government between June 2007 and June 2011 on behalf of TransLink - identifying contact or possible contact with Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody legislators, as well as Transportation Minister Kevin Falcon and Environment Minister Barry Penner. But, in email to Public Eye, the Lower Mainland transportation authority's chief executive officer Pat Jacobsen writes, "Several months ago Burrard Communications was retained to speak with TriCities leaders, including local elected officials, on their opinions on the Evergreen Line. In order to have those meetings, registration is required by law. This scan has been completed and they are NOT retained to lobby the Provincial Government."

This is the same tired old accusation you level against all lobbiests. Did you bother calling Burrard or Mr Parlee to ask whether or not he spoke to public officials in the intervening period? My guess is not.
