    Who is Dan Donovan and why does he not have a national byline.
    If it weren't for lavscam.info I would never have heard of him.
    He seems to have a grip on how Ottawa works.

    He seems to have a grip on how Ottawa works.
    His bio at Ottawa Life Magazine:

    Dan Donovan is the founding Publisher of Ottawa Life Magazine, the capital’s largest and longest running (est. 1996) general interest and lifestyles magazine. His work has been featured in The Globe and Mail, Financial Post, Sun, Ottawa Citizen, Masthead Magazine and The Hill Times. He is a regular guest commentator on public policy matters on CFRA, 1310 AM and the Corus networks Charles Adler Radio Show. He is a former Vice President of Government and Public Affairs at Magna International. He served as Chief of Staff to the former federal minister of youth and labour and as Director of Publications and Communications at the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy. He is a former Director of Environment Policy at The International Chamber of Commerce in Paris, France. Dan holds degrees from both the University of Ottawa and the Université de Strasbourg (Institut d’Etudes Politique et Economie). He is a past member of the Executive Committee and the Board of the Conference of Defence Associations Institute, former member of the Board of the National Cycling Centre and a former governor of the Canada's Sports Hall of Fame. His first book, True Grits, New Grits was published by Hemlock press in 1993.
    My guess is that he is well known in Ottawa circles but less so the further away from Ottawa you get. I'd never heard of him or Ottawa Life Magazine either.

    Is Ottawa Life the magazine in all the rooms of the fancy hotels?

    Liberal MP Randy Boissonnault (MP for Edmonton Centre, Alberta) says that 1,000 SNC-Lavalin jobs are in Alberta, and the reason SNC needs a DPA is because Alberta has lost 100,000 jobs recently and can't afford another 1,000 engineering jobs to be lost in Alberta.

    I sure never heard that mentioned when justin told Jody that he was the member of Papineau, or when he told Jody that there was a Quebec provincial election coming up.

    No federal money to cover Vice-Admiral Mark Norman's big defence costs but federal money for outside lawyers for Trudeau, Katie Telford and other PMO staff for PMO outside lawyers in case RCMP probes SNC-Lavalin affair

    Just how much public money has Trudeau spent on private law firms for him and his minions over the favours for SNC
