Earlier, we reported the premier's former special advisor and top bureaucrat Ken Dobell has been talking to the Campbell administration about "transit system gates and smart cards" on behalf of Cubic Transportation Systems Inc.. But he's not the only consultant working for Cubic, an American company that "designs, manufactures and integrates automatic fare collection systems for public transit projects throughout the world." Lecia Stewart also registered to lobby the government for Cubic on November 23, with that work terminating on December 4. Ms. Stewart, Bombardier Transportation's former North American high-speed rail vice-president, also served as director of the Clark administration's $1.167 billion Millennium SkyTrain Line expansion project.
