Earlier, we exclusively reported the Royal Canadian Mounted Police wouldn't be investigating allegations the provincial Liberals' powerful former campaign co-chair violated the Lobbyists Registration Act. The reason: by law, proceedings could only be brought against Mr. Kinsella within six months of his alleged offences - which happened in or before 2007 - taking place. But three months ago - following news that Mr. Kinsella had declined to consent to a review of his interactions with the government by the lobbyists registrar, Attorney General Wally Oppal told reporters, "If someone is contravening the act, there is a remedy - in spite of the fact it's not within the act. The fact is the police could investigate that person." Mr. Kinsella has denied the allegations against him.
