Yesterday, we broke the news the premier's former deputy minister and special advisor Ken Dobell had been appointed government relations firm Hill and Knowlton Canada Ltd.'s British Columbia chair. But, in an interview with The Globe and Mail's Mr. Dobell says he doesn't expect to register as a lobbyist on behalf of the firm. According to Mr. Dobell, "My role will be mostly to work on the public policy side and mentor some of the bright young sparks they have around here. I don't anticipate doing any lobbying. If some comes up, we'll deal with it at the time."
