Billionaire Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté is off to the International Space Station. The rocket carrying the well-known philantropist launched yesterday, and he should be distributing his red clown noses to ISS crew-members by the end of his two-day journey. Thumbs up, man!

Former Montreal Airports customs agent Nancy Cedeno was found guilty of accepting bribes and providing confidential information to cocaine smugglers. She was arrested during Opération Colisée and was connected with Nicolo Rizzuto's mafia.

The Montreal Gazette's City Eye community has put together a very interesting chart comparing the online presence of mayoral candidates, tallying their Twitter followers and Facebook stats, Flickr and Youtube accounts. So far, Richard Bergeron seems to be in the lead - but that's just online marketing, right?

Canada's Health minister, Leona Aglukkaq, is cracking down on candy-flavoured tobacco products and pushing Bill C-32 to Quebec Tories, who will most likely accept the bill as is. If C-32, also called the Cracking Down on Tobacco Marketing Aimed at Youth Act, passes, all fruit/vitamin/sugar/candy additives will be banned from cigarillos. Only menthol flavour will be permitted.
