If you ever wanted to know which side of the political spectrum the BC ‘Liberals’ fall, it’s pretty obvious by now it’s neither centre nor left. When a supposed centre-left political party hires a lobbyist whose previous tenure involved working as senior policy advisor and strategist to Stephen Harper and lobbying for Enbridge and Suncor, you know it has gone off the rails (emphasis mine).
Boessenkool, currently a public policy consultant and an executive fellow at the University of Calgary, also served as a policy advisor to two Alberta finance ministers.
According to the Registry of Lobbyists, Boessenkool has lobbied the federal government on behalf of many corporations and organizations, including Enbridge, GlaxoSmithKline, Rio Tinto, SNC Lavalin Nuclear,Suncor Energy, Pfizer Canada, and Taser International.
Damn fine credentials, no? Does this mean the BC Liberals are looking to not only go along with the federal Conservatives on the Northern Gateway Project but to lobby for it, too?
Conservative bloggers in BC, as evidenced by BC Blue, are not happy either. They should be.
