Nestlé’s lobbying efforts in the face of controversy over Ontario’s water use permits are “inappropriate” and “unacceptable”, says the Council of Canadians. In September, two Summa Strategies Canada lobbyists, Lindsay Doyle and Katlyn Harrison, registered with Ontario’s Integrity Commissioner and outlined plans to lobby a number of ministers’ offices on behalf of Nestle Waters Canada.

“The soles don’t look that much like swastikas, but the prints are unmistakable,” one person wrote on Reddit. “And whoever made the soles would have understood that.”

Good news: Telecom providers including TekSavvyBuzz and Rogers are pushing back against proposals for even more invasive surveillance powers, including data retention and warrantless access to information. They’ve put their concerns on the record of the government’s National Security consultation. http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/rogers-teksavvy-itac-cwta-bill-c51-national-security-1.3903930

International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland has faced a challenging week given the possible collapse of the trade agreement between Canada and the European Union. Freeland and the Liberal government have worked hard to get CETA to the finish line with some changes to the investor - state dispute settlement rules (the rules should be dropped altogether) and frequent travel across Europe to garner support for the deal.

Strange messages coming from the stars are ‘probably’ from aliens, scientists say
Scientists have heard hugely unusual messages from deep in space that they think are coming from aliens. A new analysis of strange modulations in a tiny set of stars appears to indicate that it could be coming from extraterrestrial intelligence that is looking to alert us to their existence. The new study reports the finding of specific modulations in just 234 out of the 2.5 million stars that have been observed during a survey of the sky. The wo...
