Today, provincial elected representatives returned to Victoria for a five-day sitting. But, in an interview with Public Eye, Attorney General Wally Oppal said fixing the government's broken Lobbyists Registration Act isn't on the Campbell administration's fall legislative agenda. Nor could he say if such an amendment would be introduced before the next election "because that's entirely up to the house leader. But I would like to have something done sooner than later." Although, when asked for comment, House Leader Mike De Jong said he couldn't "say for certain" if that would happen before British Columbians go to the polls. "But they're working on it."
