It could be that you are accessing a Google cache server on Shaw's network. This is normal, as many ISP's host Google cache servers on their networks.

Because Shaw, like every other medium and large ISP, hosts Google servers

The problem with the ISP Google Cache, is many ISP do not label(IP address check) as being owned by Google.
That raises red flags of a 'man in the middle attack' by the ISP. Maybe one of these years, it will be fixed. Doubtful though.

The bottom right of that ISP Google cache page, there is a button to click for non-cache-Google(may be redirected back to the cache).
First click goes to .CA
The second click goes to .COM

At best, the PTR record will say Google, but really, it is still the ISP's IP space
