As Senators became more independent, meetings with lobbyists hoping to take advantage tripled in 2016

Marie-Danielle Smith | March 5, 2017 2:14 PM ET

Lobbyists registered more meetings with senators and Senate staffers in 2016 than in any other year on record, a threefold increase from 2015 and well above typical margins under the majority Conservative government.

Last year, 687 communications between lobbyists and senators were registered with the office of the federal lobbying commissioner. That compares to 217 in 2015 — a low number that is partly explained by a long election campaign — and an average of about 450 over the four previous years. Another 76 communications have taken place since the holiday break.

You can't expect the lobbyists to miss an opportunity like this!
