Surprise . Surprise. Turns out Sandra Buckler was a paid lobbyist for Power Corp. immediately prior to jumping on Stephen Harper’s band wagon.
Just part of the revolving door of lobbyists becoming government officials and government officials becoming lobbyists in a never ending struggle to gain the higher ground of personal economic advantage. Ideology is measured by dollars and cents.
Do you suppose Sandra Buckler provides the Desmarais with daily updates about the inner workings of the Harper government the way that Marjory LeBreton did/does with Brian Mulroney?
I didn’t think Power Corp needed paid lobbyists. Just private jets and compliant Prime Ministers.

"Paul Desmarais Jr., the well-connected chairman of Power Corp. of Canada, even railed against trusts in a conversation with Prime Minister Stephen Harper during a trip to Mexico, and told him he should act quickly to stop the raft of conversions, according to sources."
