The City of Hamilton is using a professional lobbying firm to manage its lobbying efforts to secure additional federal funding for the Pan Am stadium which faces a funding shortfall of over $50-million.
The firm representing Hamilton is StrategyCorp. StrategyCorp is one of Ottawa’s most successful lobbying firms with both Conservative and Liberal political insiders on staff.
Interestingly, the contract is not between the City and StrategyCorp.
The Federal Registry of Lobbyists shows the contract between StrategyCorp’s and Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP.
Gowlings is operating as the agent for the City of Hamilton, with lawyer David Estrin listed as the contact at the firm.
Estrin is a partner and senior environmental law specialist at Gowlings.
