Back in 2005, The Tyee's Scott Deveau reported former fisheries and oceans deputy minister Bruce Rawson represented Redfern Resources Ltd. at a meeting between the company, the department and the environmental assessment office. This, despite the fact Mr. Rawson isn't registered as a lobbyist in British Columbia. At the time, he told Mr. Deveau he believed "his duties to Redfern fell short of what is required for him by law to register." But Mr. Rawson is now performing duties that do require him to register. Because, back in January, he signed-up as a lobbyist for Taseko Mines Ltd. Mr. Rawson has also represented Northgate Exploration Ltd., according to the registry.
