Legal "While the court referral has attracted the lion share of attention, my weekly technology law column reports that there is an alternate secret strategy in which Canada plays a key role. According to recently leaked documents, the EU plans to use the Canada - EU Trade Agreement, which is nearing its final stages of negotiation, as a backdoor mechanism to implement the ACTA provisions. The CETA IP chapter has already attracted attention due to EU pharmaceutical patent demands that could add billions to provincial health care costs, but the bigger story may be that the same chapter features a near word-for-word replica of ACTA." Democracy? Bah humbug!

Ahh, so that is why the prime place for putting (littering with) election posters seems to be on low barriers between sidewalks and roads / grass / tram tracks... (like the barriers visible on few pictures hereń ...though, OTOH, usings the barriers between the tracks - which also happens on a massive scale - might be also a form of defence)
