17 January was the 17th day of the seventh month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
17 January 2007
Reuters Canada - Tech deal signed as Canada re-engages China (16 January 2007)
Canadian Trade Minister David Emerson signed a science and technology deal with China on 16 January at the opening of a trip aimed at reinvigorating trade and investment with the Asian superpower.
The agreement, signed with Chinese Science and Technology Minister Xu Guanhua, is to boost collaborative research and development, particularly in the areas of energy, the environment, and green technologies.
Emerson said the two countries had a 'close and quite deep relationship' that Canada needed to better leverage into trade and investment opportunities.
CBC News - Ottawa to spend $230M on clean energy technology (17 January 2007)
The federal government will invest $230 million over four years in developing clean energy technologies in Canada, Natural Resources Minister Gary Lunn said.
'...we must do better. We must reduce emissions. We must become a clean energy superpower,' Lunn told reporters. He said that the federal government has decided its priorities for the environment include energy efficiency, renewable energy, and cleaning up conventional energy.
Reuters Canada - Canada government tries to show green credentials (17 January 2007)
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, bowing to polls showing that green issues were now a priority for Canadians, named a new environment minister and promised to do more to combat climate change.
In October the Conservatives unveiled draft legislation that would not cap emissions until 2020 at the earliest. This prompted such unhappiness that Harper now says he is open to sections of the bill being rewritten.
The Toronto Star - Clean energy looks lucrative: Study (17 January 2007)
Rising power prices, the need to build more electricity generation, and serious concerns for the environment are creating huge investment opportunities in the clean-energy market, according to a report from Sprott Securities Inc.
The situation has become so pressing that politicians in Canada and the US are embracing the environment as a top campaign issue. 'I don't think we've ever seen these (market) drivers converge as we're seeing now,' said MacMurray Whale, alternative energy analyst at Sprott and author of the report, 'Power, Politics and Technology'.
Whale said the problems aren't new. What has changed is that the public—and investors—are becoming more aware of them in a way that is beginning to alter the psychology of the market.
'We believe these themes will not just increase the deployment of wind turbines, run-of-river hydro, solar panels, and biomass plants, but that investor interest will also increase,' Whale wrote. 'This should drive valuations higher, reflecting the growth prospects for both facility developers and technology suppliers.'
The National Post - Taxpayers cheer: The Supreme Court ruling means provincial user fees and service charges must not generate additional revenue for the government (17 January 2007)
Under Canada's constitution, only the federal government may impose an indirect tax. A ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada means that provincial user fees and service charges must not generate additional revenue for the government, but approximate the cost of providing the service, and that illegally collected taxes must be returned to taxpayers. This result benefits taxpayers because provincial governments can no longer use them as a means of hidden taxation.
The Globe and Mail - Home sales post blockbuster year (17 January 2007)
Canadian home sales hit their second-largest level on record in 2006, real-estate statistics showed. The number of units sold last year was just 242 units shy of the record set in 2005.
Average prices in major markets climbed 10.6 per cent to a record $294,270 in 2006. That was the strongest since 1989, the Canadian Real Estate Association said. Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Sudbury, Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec City all set records for sales activity in 2006.
The end of last year also finished with a bang. In December, sales activity reached the fourth-highest monthly level on record, and was the strongest month for resale activity for the year.
These are a few of the news reports reflecting Canada's rising invincibility from the growing Yogic Flying groups across Canada and the Invincible America Assembly at Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City, USA.
