Some would argue that Mr. Teneycke's past employer may be extremely guilty of, say, third party advertising. That is, a group that advertises to the benefit of a political entity. Say, oh, I don't know, the Conservative Party of Canada. Some would say there is nothing wrong with using the Prime Minister in third party ads.
Whatever one says, I seem to remember that the Conservatives were getting rid of "PATRONAGE":
For those Canadians seeking accountability the question is clear: which party can deliver the change of government that’s needed to ensure political accountability in Ottawa? We need a change of government to replace old style politics with a new vision. We need to replace a culture of entitlement and corruption with a culture of accountability.-Conservative Platform 2006
We need to replace benefits for a privileged few with government for all. Everyday Canadians – the hardworking people who pay their taxes and play by the rules – want and deserve a new government that will put the people’s interest ahead of self-interest.
Under the Liberals, lobbying government – often by friends and associates of Paul Martin and other Liberal ministers – has become a multi-million dollar industry. Senior Liberals move freely back and forth between elected and non-elected government posts and the world of lobbying.-Conservative Platform 2006
But they're right about one thing - their lobbyist aren't the same as Paul Martin's lobbyists. They are a totally new group of lobbyists/non-lobbyists.
