April 12 (Reuters) - The following are the top stories from selected Canadian newspapers. Reuters has not verified these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.


* In a paper released Thursday, Diana Carney, top researcher at a progressive think tank in Ottawa, said climate change has become the "third rail" of Canadian politics, with the government using it so aggressively as a "wedge issue" that reasonable debate has been lost. And she placed the blame squarely at the feet of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. ()

Reports in the business section:

* Telus Corp of Vancouver has entered talks to buy privately held Mobilicity in a deal that sources say could value the target at between C$350 million ($346.14 million) and C$400 million.

Meanwhile, Public Mobile - the smallest of the three independent wireless companies that launched operations in 2009 and 2010 - has hired investment bankers to find a purchaser. ()
