A loopy decision?

Yesterday, the provincial government introduced amendments to fix it's long-broken Lobbyists Registration Act. But that amendment won't close many of the loopholes that exist in that legislation. In a technical briefing this morning, officials confirmed there isn't a requirement to register if an individual is lobbying about: the "enforcement, interpretation or application" of an existing law or regulation; or the "implementation or administration of any program, policy, directive or guideline." Nor is there a requirement to register if an individual is lobbying an elected officials about a "personal matter" concerning a constituent.
