Gerald Chipeur Lobbies for the AGCAT
Lobbying has had its purpose for years. Many of the known countries of today have lobbying as a common activity. Organizations and companies get their ideas and expectations before government. The better the lobbying on any subject the better the outcome. That is getting the idea to accepted the government of the day. Thus Gerald Chipeur Lobbied for the Alberta Grain & Oil Seed Crisis Advocacy Trust(AGCAT).
There are laws put in place today to prevent political corruption. Lobbying is a great way to influence legislators and officials. So that they are in favor of your idea or product or public stand on a concept. Many Human interest needs have been addressed through lobbying.
The concept and idea of lobbying has been in print as far back as the 1820’s.
Lobbyists many times will work together to put more weight to their lobbying ideas. Their intention is to have a stronger force. That way they will be able to influence the decisions of governmental individuals. The influence would be towards laws. Also,the passing of products allowed and even influencing the outcome of court cases.
To influence a court case the lobbyist(s) will use a legal device known as an amicus curiae briefs. The English translation is “ friend of the court”. It is through these briefs that the lobbyist(s) work to influence the court during any court case.
