Earlier, we reported the premier's former special advisor Ken Dobell had registered as a lobbyist for the British Columbia Institute of Technology, Global Container Terminals Inc. and UniverCity. This, despite the fact Mr. Dobell - Hill and Knowlton Canada Ltd.'s British Columbia chair - told The Globe and Mail's Justine Hunter, "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." And that time has come again. According to the registry, Mr. Dobell signed-up to represent the interests of Vancouver International Airport last month. The subject: "Provincial Government Legislation."
