Rahim Jaffer, Canada’s lobbying commissioner has found that former Alberta MP Rahim Jaffer and associate Patrick Glemaud broke federal rules when they sought more than $175 million in government funds for their green power company.

In a decision delivered Monday, lobbying commissioner Karen Shepherd ruled that Jaffer — a former Edmonton Tory MP — and Glemaud breached the Lobbyists’ Code of Conduct by failing to register as lobbyists when they tried in 2009 to obtain about $178 million in federal cash for their company GPG-Green Power Generation Corp.

The lobbying commissioner investigated 10 allegations concerning the two men as in-house lobbyists for GPG and concluded they breached the Lobbyists’ Code of Conduct in five of allegations.

“Green Power Generation was a commercial enterprise established with the intention of generating revenue. Although Mr. Glemaud and Mr. Jaffer were not successful in securing more than $178 million in government funding that they were seeking, their activities required registration,” Shepherd said in a statement.
