Lobbyists’ communications up by more than 100 per cent over last year, Liberals more open to lobbying

Summa Strategies' Tim Powers says that while there are twice as many communication reports being filed lately, lobbyists are not doing twice as much work. He said, last year when the Conservative government was less keen on meeting with lobbyists, government relations workers were doing more background work that doesn't show up in the registry.
