A Globe article http://ur1.ca/48005  "Google’s big bet on Canada" included:

"In a gala that drew three MPs, countless engineers and all of
Kitchener's city council, Google gave visitors a tour of its brand new
34,000-square-foot facility in Kitchener, Ont.’s Tannery district,
just a few kilometres south of the University of Waterloo."

Do people know which 3 MPs?

What do people think of this move for Google to grow in KW?  Any ties
in to OpenText or RIM (IE: is Google bringing in people to directly
compete with them -- media suggests that this is Chrome that the KW
Google staff are focused on).
