Top Trudeau adviser resigns, caught directing TransCanada on lobbying next government #elxn42

OTTAWA – The Liberals say Justin Trudeau’s national campaign co-chair did not break any ethical standards when he sent a detailed email Monday to people behind the Energy East pipeline with advice on how and when to lobby a new government – including if it happened to be a Liberal minority.

In the email, Dan Gagnier tells five people at TransCanada Corp. to target the right people in a new government as quickly as possible so they can help shape either Liberal or NDP decisions on a national energy strategy.
