One of Trudeau's campaign co-chairs has stepped down after advising TransCanada how to lobby the next government, including advice on lobbying a potential Liberal minority. He's not a registered lobbyist and the emails at this point seem to be all legal, but this is the kind of news that could derail the Liberals just before election day. http://globalnews.ca/news/2277153/trudeau-adviser-steps-down-after-giving-pipeline-company-lobbying-advice/?hootPostID=a623af75b6a4d1a0be52d0a5ad633747
More examples of Harper's failure to increase accountability in Ottawa. Daniel Kosick, a policy advisor for the Tories, took a position with a group that lobbied him while he was in office. Ethics legislation does not allow people in public office to accept jobs for 1 year with individuals or companies that they had "direct and significant" dealings with. Kosick met with this particular lobbyist at least 3 times in his last year in office. Kosick is also married to Michelle Rempel's former chief of staff and sister to the national campaign director of the CPC. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/canada-election-2015-ethics-conservative-conflict-1.3229323 Edit: Tags
