The inauguration of two 'peace islands' off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada last week by the Global Country of World Peace has seized the attention of the Canadian media including Canada Press, Canada.com, Canada Free Press, the Brandon Sun, Canoe.ca,Canada.com Maritimes, and Canada East.
The papers noted that the islands will be part of a 'Community of Global Peace,' and along with six other sites around the world will form the community's 'Parliament'. An international Peace Palace will be built on one of the islands to help bring a stop to conflict around the world.
The papers all quoted Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Global Country of World Peace:
'The constitution of the universe will radiate from these islands of Canada,' Maharishi told the Brandon Sun in an interview from the Netherlands. 'The new parliament of world peace will be from the peace-loving people who are simple, sincere, innocent.'
Maharishi went on to explain that the world cannot rely on government alliances such as the United Nations, because they use man-made law instead of Natural Law.
'The constitution of every government, because made by human beings, has human weaknesses and human failings,' he was quoted as saying.
The Maharishi told the press that the islands will have a visible and almost immediate impact on global peace.
The islands, just south of the island of Cape Breton, were chosen because they are near the most easterly point on mainland North America—and are the first place on the continent to see the sun rise.
The islands will become the North American capital of the movement, attracting people from all over the continent to learn and to practise the Transcendental Meditation Programme, including Yogic Flying. A $1.2 million development will include a peace tower, conference centre, and school.
