Dr Paul Potter, Raja (Administrator) of Invincible Canada for the Global Country of World Peace, recently reported that there is a new awakening of interest in Consciousness-Based Education in India and thousands of students will now be learning Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Technique. Dr Potter also said Consciousness-Based Education is being implemented in four cities across Canada.

Speaking on the Maharishi Global Family Chat—which is broadcast daily via satellite and Internet on Channel 3 of the Maharishi Channel—Dr Potter said that the four cities in Canada are Victoria and Vancouver, British Colombia; Ottawa, Ontario; and Big Cove, New Brunswick.

In Victoria, Dr Potter said, a presentation was made to 29 teachers and administrators on Consciousness-Based Education. The presentation was received with great enthusiasm, and very soon the programme will be introduced in the school.

At a school in Vancouver, which is very near Victoria, British Colombia, 26 staff members learned the Transcendental Meditation Technique and approximately one hundreds students will now be taught the technique over the next few months, Dr Potter said.

In Ottawa, Ontario, the capital city of Canada, a Consciousness-Based Education programme is beginning at a school of 400 students with the support of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace. Dr Potter reported that approximately 200 students will learn Transcendental Meditation before the end of this year.

At the fourth location, in Big Cove, New Brunswick a Consciousness-Based Education programme is planned to start at the beginning of this April, with nine faculty and 60 students in grades 6, 7, and 8 learning Transcendental Meditation. Dr Potter said that 'we are very fortunate that in New Brunswick we have the support of Dr Clarence Cormier, who is the former Minister of Education for the province of New Brunswick, and he is taking a tremendous leadership role now for all of the world as the Global Minister of Administration for the Global Country of World Peace.' He has also given his great support to Consciousness-Based Education programmes in schools throughout Canada, Dr Potter said.
