Flair Airlines wants money from the federal government to help it compete with Air Canada and WestJet. A German submarine maker is lobbying for a piece of the $60 billion plan to replace Canada’s aging fleet. And a wood-product manufacturer is fighting the federal government’s plan to ban a dangerous preservative.

Those are just some of the insights from the IJF’s roundup of lobbying registrations at the federal level and in every province across Canada. Each week, the IJF publishes data from our four lobbying databases showing who wants laws changed and who is asking for government money. Think of it as your weekly dose of public policy news before it becomes news.
