A friendly reminder

Earlier, we reported the number of government relations consultants signing-up with the provincial lobbyist registry increased markedly last April - the same month Ken Dobell was accused of non-compliance with the Lobbyists Registration Act by the provincial New Democrats? And there was another increase in June. This, following the release a May 28 report by information and privacy commissioner David Loukidelis which alleged Mr. Dobell breached the act. So what does Attorney General Wally Oppal - who is responsible for that law - think of those spikes? In an interview with Public Eye, he stated, "It might indicate people are aware of the consequences of not registering. I don't know. It's anybody interpretation of what that may mean or what it may not mean. Maybe those people who are involved in lobbying realize that, if a proper amount of their time is spent engaged in that exercise, maybe they should register."
