Budget airline Lynx is asking for federal subsidies to expand its business, the latest in a recent string of airline registrations. Lockheed Martin wants to talk to National Defence after its controversial deal to supply the agency with F-35 fighter jets. And Purolator is looking to the Ontario government for help as it electrifies its fleet of delivery vehicles.

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.
