HoB&K-more bad PR for the PR company

Select quotes from an article on Enbridge’s P.R. firm Hill of Beans and Knowlton:

Hiring Hill and Knowlton speaks volumes about the lengths which Enbridge will apparently go to persuade the B.C. public that supertankers and oilsands pipelines are a good thing for our province.

Guardian journalist George Monbiot describes Hill and Knowlton as "the public relations company famous for the unsavoury nature of its clients."

Hill and Knowlton advised the Chinese government in the wake of the Tianenmen massacre, set up lobby groups for the tobacco companies coached the girl who told the false story about Kuwaiti babies being thrown out of incubators, which helped to launch the first Gulf war.
