Since Justin Trudeau's government took power in 2015, lobbyists in Ottawa have focused more attention on the nation's bureaucrats, rather than elected office holders, representing what one researcher is calling a troubling 'fusion of private interest and public bodies'

A new report from the Corporate Mapping Project documents the reach of the fossil fuel industry when it comes to lobbying the federal government, raising red flags about what it calls a "troubling shift in lobbying patterns."

The report's findings suggest that industry lobbyists are increasingly focusing on developing closer, long-term relationships with federal bureaucrats rather than elected officials, especially since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took office in 2015.
