Premier Darrell Pasloski has told Yukoners that would-be lobbyists cruise our grocery stores, waiting to pounce upon vulnerable, unsuspecting ministers.

Are flinty-eyed lobbyists lurking in the meat section? That suspicious looking fellow in baking goods… could he be a snake oil salesman from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers?

And what about that stranger skulking in fresh produce? He spends an awful lot of time fondling the tomatoes. Could he be from a Chinese government-owned mining corporation seeking consequence-free plundering opportunities?

Gee, Premier Pasloski, thanks for the warning!
