Hon. Sue Barnes (London West, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, Emanuel Montenegrino has worked for the Conservatives on a host of legal matters, including legal representation for the Prime Minister. He is also registered to lobby for 10 clients, which includes lobbying the Prime Minister's Office and MPs directly.
Now we have learned that he was asked to secretly vet some prospective judicial appointees outside the normal established process.
In an unrelated matter, that individual was recently suspended for two months and fined by the Law Society of Upper Canada for professional misconduct.
Is he still working for the PMO and lobbying its offices at the same time?
