As more information about the business dealings of Rahim Jaffer is being released to the public, suddenly we are seeing the company of a former Liberal MP showing up on a project proposal. As fate would have it, Liberals lobby too. One such man is Joe Jordan, the former Liberal MP for Leeds-Grenville, who used Rahim Jaffer to attempt to access information on the Green Fund. Thus far it is foggy exactly what Mr. Jordan wanted from Rahim Jaffer, but we know that he gave briefing notes on his company to Mr. Jaffer for some purpose.
It appears that he wanted to know if his project qualified for funding, something that Jordan could have easily done himself. Mr. Jordan you see, is a registered lobbyist. Mr. Jaffer is not a registered lobbyist. Even if what Mr. Jaffer was doing qualified as lobbying, it is a profession that he apparently isn't very good at. He was never successful at obtaining a Government contract, and if he was running around telling people that he had access to the PMO that he didn't have, what does that have to do with the Government? He was never improperly awarded anything.
