3 February was the 3rd day of the eighth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
3 February 2007
The Ottawa Citizen - Harper changes tune, no longer skeptical of climate change (3 February 2007) Although Prime Minister Harper had previously raised doubts about the scientific evidence, on 2 February he said, 'I think the science is clear that these changes are occurring. They're serious and we must act.'
Environment Minister John Baird, who said he was 'struck' by the overwhelming consensus among scientists, insisted the Conservative government would act within the coming weeks and months to regulate pollution from all industrial sectors.
'This is far too critical an issue for us to leave behind for future generations to address. We're not going to preach. We're not going to badger. We're going to lead by example and help others with science and technology,' Baird said.
The Edmonton Journal - Alberta moves to make emissions targets mandatory (3 February 2007) The Alberta government is planning to introduce this spring legislation that would set mandatory emissions targets for the province's greenhouse gas producers.
'It's time for us to take some action and ensure that we begin the process to reduce greenhouse gases,' Environment Minister Rob Renner told reporters.
The government's 2002 climate change action plan set voluntary targets for greenhouse-gas reductions. The new bill, Renner said, would set so-called 'intensity-based targets' with which industry would be forced to comply.
Bloomberg News reports (2 February 2007) The TSX Composite Index dipped on 2 February but climbed 1 per cent this week for its fourth straight weekly gain, including a three-day rally that pushed it to a new record. A gauge of industrial stocks rose, taking its weekly advance to 4.1 per cent. Industrial companies are among the most closely tied to economic growth.
'We may be having a breather today but this market seems very resilient and the economic fundamentals back that,' said Ian Nakamoto, director of research at MacDougall, MacDougall & MacTier in Toronto, which manages $3.5 billion. 'We're in a bull market and all sectors will go up.'
CBC News - January fund sales best in 10 years (2 February 2007) Canadian mutual fund companies are reporting their best January sales figures in 10 years.
Net new sales last month were between $3.5 billion and $4 billion, the Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC) estimated. That's more than twice the $1.6 billion in net sales the industry reported a year earlier. 'January sales results are always a good indicator of how investors are feeling in the new year,' said Brenda Vince, president of RBC Asset Management.
Total mutual fund assets as of the end of January were estimated up to $674 billion, an increase of about 1.8 per cent over December. Stock markets in both Canada and the United States hit record highs several times this week. 'Positive financial markets were behind the seventh consecutive increase in assets,' IFIC Vice-President Pat Dunwoody said.
The Toronto Star - Resale market to rise 16.8 per cent by 2010: Report (3 February 2007) The average resale condominium in Toronto is projected to rise 16.8 per cent over the next three years, according to a report on the condo market. The report described Toronto's condo market as 'red hot'.
The feverish activity has been the result of pent-up demand... as well as low mortgage rates, steady employment and wage gains, and brisk population growth, states the report.
From another Toronto Star report on the condo market: New highrise condos continue to sell at record levels in the Greater Toronto Area, with total sales for 2006 virtually tied with those of 2005, a record-setting year. Highrise condos continue to make up a greater portion of all new homes sold. 'The new home market remains strong and vibrant...' says Greater Toronto Home Builders' Association - Urban Development Institute president Bob Finnigan.
Canadian Press - Aboriginals want land straddling Manitoba-Ontario made World Heritage Site (2 February 2007) Aboriginal groups want a huge swath of territory that straddles Manitoba and Ontario to be designated a World Heritage Site. Four First Nations say they plan to apply to the UN to have the 42,000-square-kilometre area recognized for its natural and cultural value.
The Manitoba and Ontario governments say they are supporting the bid by helping the First Nations establish a non-profit corporation. The area has a wealth of forests, lakes, and habitat for threatened and endangered species such as the woodland caribou, eagles, and wolverines.
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.
