31 January was the 31st day of the seventh month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

31 January 2007

The Toronto Star - Economic activity up in November: StatsCan (31 January 2007) Economic activity increased 0.2 per cent in November. Statistics Canada reports growth in both goods and service industries, while manufacturing expanded on the strength of the motor vehicle industries, with vehicle production growing 14 per cent in November. Manufacturing was up 1.6 per cent as 11 of the 21 major manufacturing groups increased. Mining was robust, while agriculture, forestry, construction, and financial services also posted gains.

Bloomberg News reports (30 January 2007) Canada's TSX Composite Index rose to its second-highest close ever, led by energy companies. The TSX added 68.64 to finish at 13,014.60 in Toronto. It closed at a record 13,021.77 on 14 December.

CBC News - Average resale home price gains 11.1 per cent in 2006 (31 January 2007) The average home sold through the Multiple Listing Service went for a record $276,974 last year, the Canadian Real Estate Association said. The average price of a resale home in Canada rose by 11.1 per cent in 2006, the largest increase since 1989, CREA said.

Bloomberg News - Flaherty seeking to `free up' US securities trade (31 January 2007) Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said he's written to US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, asking for a discussion on liberalizing Canada-US trade in securities, when Group of Seven finance ministers meet in Germany next week. 'We have the various exchanges and the various restrictions with respect to trading between countries, and between exchanges, and I think we ought to move in the direction of removing those,' Flaherty told reporters. Flaherty said Canada needs to remove internal barriers to securities trade, such as the lack of a single regulator for the country, in order to 'be consistent' with freer trade with the US.

The Vancouver Sun - Parliament signals climate shift with green rhetoric (30 January 2007) Canada's federal politicians signalled a political climate shift in an opening to the spring parliamentary session dominated by talk of the environment. Recent polls show that the environment has vaulted past health care to become the most important issue among Canadian voters, and the political parties proved that they are getting the message.

CBC News - Calgary Health Region mulls trans fats ban (29 January 2007) Calgary could become the first Canadian city to ban trans fats from its restaurants, the local health authority has announced. Consultations have begun with New York City's board of health, that last year became the first US city to ban the artery-clogging fats from its restaurants. Officials with the Calgary Health Region next plan to meet with the public, restaurant owners, and different levels of government about ridding Calgary eateries of trans fats.

'We do have a wellness strategy and one of the strategies within that is advocating for healthy public policy, so this is one piece of that larger wellness strategy,' said Mona Pinder, a director for the Calgary Health Region.

Canadian Press - Report says ecological value of Arctic watershed greater than natural resources (31 January 2007) The report was prepared for the Canadian Boreal Initiative, an organization devoted to preserving the vast, nearly untouched forest lands that stretch across the northern reaches of nearly every province and territory.

At 1.7 million square kilometres, the Mackenzie region is one of the largest watersheds in the world. The report analyzes 17 different 'services' the ecosystem provides, including atmospheric and climatic stabilization, erosion control, waste treatment, pollination, soil formation, food production, and biodiversity preservation. These are 'things that have real societal value, but don't compute in our gross domestic product', said Larry Innes, the group's executive director. Such services provided by the Mackenzie River watershed are worth an astronomical $448 billion a year, the report says. The market value of the area's resources such as oil, natural gas, and minerals are worth about $42 billion a year.

From a Globe and Mail report on this: Boreal forests, the study noted, are able to store more carbon dioxide—a greenhouse gas—than any other similar ecosystem on Earth, including tropical rain forests. The Canadian Boreal Initiative estimated that the value of annual carbon storage in the Mackenzie region is almost $2 billion a 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.
