Of interest in the report:
- the conflict of interest situation arises because McSweeney's cement association has lobbied Raitt and the government nine times over the past year.
- the fundraiser occurred on September 24th and "According to the federal lobbyist registry, the CAC communicated with Raitt on September 24 on the subjects of energy and the environment."
- there is a question about whether Raitt knew of or approved of lobbyist McSweeney's fundraiser for her that the Ethics Commissioner would probably be looking at:
"Halton Conservative Association (HCA) President John Challinor has said McSweeney was an individual volunteer who sold tickets for the fundraiser and that Raitt was unaware of his involvement."
Until next time on the Raitt update watch...which should be, as things are going, within about 48 hours or so...
