Boessenkool: a possible ally for Danny

Ken Boessenkool, author of a series of papers on revamping Equalization, now works for Hill & Knowlton, an international government relations firm.

Nice work if you can get it.

Canadian Press is reporting that Boessenkool registered as a lobbyist representing the makers of the Taser shortly after the death of a Polish tourist in Vancouver brought the police weapon under intense public scrutiny.

Here's a nifty idea:  maybe the provincial government should hire Ken - who is known to be tight with the Prime Minister - to help sort out the Equalization/compensation mess.

The government's approach to date has been, shall we say, less than effective.
