Trudeau hires Boston Consulting Group adviser to bring foreign investment to Canada
Kilian Berz, a senior partner and managing director at BCG’s Toronto office, will join the Privy Council Office, a branch of the public service that reports to Trudeau.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government is bringing in a Boston Consulting Group adviser to help it attract more foreign investment.

Kilian Berz, a senior partner and managing director at BCG’s Toronto office, will join the Privy Council Office, a branch of the public service that reports to Trudeau. Reached by phone Monday, Berz confirmed he’ll keep his position at BCG and won’t be paid for his government work.

Berz said he intends to focus on coordinating ministries, provinces and municipalities in attracting investment in Canada from major global firms. “I’m honored by the mandate and I look forward to working with the Prime Minister on this opportunity,” Berz said, adding he was drawn to the post by “an unparalleled opportunity for Canada to share the advantages we have as a country.”

Berz will join the Canadian delegation to the World Economic Forum in Davos this week – a trip Trudeau himself backed out of – and will provide insight on foreign investment from a private-sector perspective.

The goat ate my soap!

That’s what kids might tell their mom when she asks them to wash up before a meal. And they’re not kidding. There’s even a website from a sanitation group in Malawi with the title: “How to prevent goats from eating soap.”

No soap is a big problem. The chemicals in soap help break down oils on your hand that can harbor microbes. According to studies in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Review and Tropical Medicine and International Health, hand-washing with soap could prevent about 1 out of every 3 episodes of diarrheal illness and nearly 1 out of 6 episodes of respiratory infections like pneumonia.

Goats are only one of the reasons that the percentage of people who wash up in the developing world is as low as 19 percent in some countries. In honor of Global Handwashing Day, which was Thursday, here’s a look at things that stand in the way of washing — and possible solutions.
