When last the press asked about the provincial government's lackadaisical efforts to repair its broken lobbyist registry, Attorney General Wally Oppal said his deputy had issued a position paper reviewing the legislation. So has any progress been made since March? Well, speaking with Public Eye on Tuesday, Attorney General Oppal said he has, "met with the privacy commissioner" - who's responsible for the lobbyist registry - "and he has given us a report. And we'll have to study the report and move forward from there." So is there any timeline for moving forward on David Loukidelis's recommendations? "Not really. I just received it about a week and a half ago. We had quite a fruitful meeting. And he's made some suggestions. And we'll have to look at them."
