Vision (Canada) - - Actualités | News - Gregg Cham­ber­lain

He may be part of the Li­be­ral back­bench on Par­lia­ment Hill but Glen­gar­ry-Pres­cott-Rus­sell MP Fran­cis Drouin is among the Top Ten Most Lob­bied MPs in the cur­rent Tru­deau ad­mi­nis­tra­tion, ac­cor­ding to an ana­ly­sis by The Hill Times, the week­ly news­pa­per for the federal go­vern­ment.

Hill Times staff did a recent re­view of more than 35,000 re­cords fi­led to the federal lob­byists’ re­gis­try for 2017 and found that Drouin ranks fourth among the top 10 MP’s most lob­bied on is­sues by their consti­tuents. At 136 post­ings on agri­cul­tu­ral is­sues to the re­gis­try, Drouin got more lob­bying mes­sages from his ru­ral ri­ding than any mem­ber of the Li­be­ral ca­bi­net, ex­cept for In­no­va­tion Mi­nis­ter Nav­deep Bains, MP for Mis­sis­sau­ga-Mal­ton.–
