Open Secret

I almost missed this little gem in one of Radwanski's recent pieces:

"It’s well known around government that there are senior Liberals who trade on their influence with the government while passing themselves off as consultants or legal counsel, avoiding the scrutiny that comes with registering to lobby."

Oh! Well! That's interesting. Pray tell us, O Mr. Enlightened All-Knowing Fancy Pants Journalist.....just who are these "senior Liberals" who engage in such behaviour?

And how come the names of these people aren't "well known" amongst the voters? PC Party of Ontario, I'm looking in your direction......?


  1. Dude, we're you born yesterday? This happens with in Alberta with PCs all the time. Cabinet minister Dave Hancock appointed his campaign manager, Ralph Young, as Chancellor of tevUniversity of Alberta. Oink oink.

  2. No, no, no. You've got it exactly backwards. In Ontario, the successful people aspire to *become* government hacks, not the other way around.
