In another example of Trudeau government cronyism, Trudeau's chief of staff Katie Telford's husband lobbied for changes to government policy so to help his company.

In a bombshell Vice article, journalist Justin Ling detailed how Katie Telford’s husband, Rob Silver, attempted to persuade the former Finance Minister Bill Morneau into changing government policy. Silver has not registered as a lobbyist.

Although his lobbying attempts were unsuccessful, Silver still repeatedly asked officials within the Department of Finance and the PMO to reform emergency assistance program for businesses so that it would include his business.

If the government proceeded with Silver's suggestions, Silver's company would have been able to have the government pay up to 75 percent of their employees' salaries.

In order to get his company qualified for this program, Silver made numerous attempts to get specific reforms to this legislation that would have benefited his business.

Due to the fact that Silver was not a registered lobbyist, he may have broken The Lobbying Act as he did not register with the lobbying commissioner.
