Imperial Oil says it "took the opportunity" to lobby Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer at a literary gala in May where the oil company paid for everyone's dinner.

In fact, that night both Liberal and Conservative MPs were lobbied by several corporate representatives from various sectors, whose employers paid tens of thousands of dollars to sponsor the annual black-tie Politics and the Pen dinner, according to communication reports filed with the federal lobbying commissioner.

Under Canadian law, paid lobbyists must disclose their interactions with certain designated public office holders. These interactions are disclosed through monthly communication reports that are posted publicly on the commissioner's website in a searchable database.
