All aboard

This week, the Island Corridor Foundation announced volunteers will be distributing over 75,000 postcards as part of an effort to convince the Campbell administration to contribute one-third of the $103.8 million needed to upgrade the rail line. But the company operating that line isn't just counting on grassroots activism to convince the provincial governments to pony up that cash. According to British Columbia's lobbyist registry, StewartGossage Group Inc. co-founder Lecia Stewart and Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP public policy advisor Brian Smith have both registered to lobby the Liberals on behalf of Southern Railway of British Columbia Ltd.


The Lecia Stewart formerly of BC Transit, West Coast Express Bombardier old names just keep popping up

That would be the same Lecia Stewart who upgraded her education to the tune of $30,000+ BC taxpayer dollars, and then took a severance package with her straight to Bombardier?

Guess she's back - the BC climate is so much easier to take.
