Cristina De Caprio Will Become New Lobbyist Registrar for Toronto, Ontario
On September 12, Cristina De Caprio becomes the lobbyist registrar for the city of Toronto, Ontario. De Caprio will replace Stephen Littlejohn, who served as the interim lobbyist registrar following the retirement of Linda Gehrke in the spring.
De Caprio’s duties will include implementing new additions to the lobbying law, which became effective in May. Among those newer responsibilities are the power of the registrar to impose certain conditions on new and existing registrations when a lobbyist has been found in violation of the law. The registrar also has the power to impose a temporary ban against a lobbyist found in violation of the law.
The City Council unanimously appointed Cristina De Caprio as lobbyist registrar at its July meeting.
