For years, Public Safety Canada has approved the use of spying devices by CSIS and RCMP to monitor Canadians’ communications. Minister Ralph Goodale has some ‘splainin’ to do.

Parenting done right.
When single mom Yevette Vasquez dropped her son off to school recently, she noticed more cars in the parking lot than usual. She asked her son Elijah what was going on and he told her that the school was holding a breakfast event called 'Donuts with Dads'. Not wanting her son to miss out, Yevette, from Texas, did what any mom would do in such a situation

Launched following pressure from over 300,000 Canadians, government consultation focuses more on concerns of police than needs of public.

"I say on behalf of the Government, that the water power all over the country should not in the future be made the sport and prey of capitalists and shall not be treated as anything else but a valuable asset of the people of Ontario." 1905 words of then-Premier Whitney
The Liberal government of Kathleen Wynne is hoping Ontarians have long since abandoned the passion that fuelled the century-old popular movement that led to the creation of Ontario Hydro.

The only issue I take with this article which needs to be promoted, is that the author believes the smart meters is an environmental tool. It's the focus of millions in theft and illegal calculations, millions in class action lawsuits by taxpayers across north america. Biggest scam in hydro history. People veing aressted for trying to stop their installation. It's a cash grab.
And also the fact that the Hydro One CEO gets 3 times what his predecessor makes??? WTF?

Two days after delivering one of the most memorable speeches of the 2016 campaign season — a moment one commentator described as the ‘fulcrum’ of the election — Khizr Khan was checking into a DC hotel, preparing for television appearances on Sunday morning and still trying to come to grips with the sudden spotlight. “I was in line, and a group of people gathered behind me and one of them said: ‘Sir, can we shake your hand?’" Khan said in a phone ...

NASA to Hold Media Call on Evidence of Surprising Activity on Europa

NASA will host a teleconference at 2 p.m. EDT Monday, Sept. 26, to present new findings from images captured by the agency’s Hubble Space Telescope of Jupiter’s icy moon, Europa.

Astronomers will present results from a unique Europa observing campaign that resulted in surprising evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean on Europa. Participants in the teleconference will be:

Paul Hertz, director of the Astrophysics Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington
William Sparks, astronomer with the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore
Britney Schmidt, assistant professor at the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta
Jennifer Wiseman, senior Hubble project scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland

A small Ottawa charity that works to alleviate poverty has been under audit by Revenue Canada for almost five years for allegedly excessive political activities. The group, Canada Without Poverty, has now launched a constitutional challenge of the Income Tax Act, saying the legislation limits freedom of expression.

Black hole made in the lab shows signs of quantum entanglement

There’s only one way to study a black hole up close: build a copy in the lab. One physicist claims his desktop black hole, which swallows sound instead of light, has been spotted emitting entangled quantum particles. It could be a breakthrough in studying the exotic physics of these weird objects – although not everyone is convinced this fake black hole is the real deal.
Efforts to study black holes in the lab with versions that trap sound instead of light may have revealed a key prediction made by Stephen Hawking

Provincial officials in Saskatchewan say a riverside city whose water supply is threatened by an oil pipeline spill is building a hose, dozens of kilometres long, to draw water from another river.
The city of Prince Albert has been preparing to shut its regular water intakes on the North Saskatchewan River following a spill upstream of between 200,000 and 250,000 litres of crude oil at a nearby Husky Energy Pipeline.
