5 February was the 5th day of the eighth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
5 February 2007
CBC News - Plenty of support for bilingualism: poll (4 February 2007) According to a new poll of 2,000 Canadians between 23 October and 19 November, 2006, official bilingualism is finally a hit in Canada.
The CROP poll shows 81 per cent of those surveyed support the idea that Canada is a bilingual country. An even larger majority, 91 per cent, said the Prime Minister should be able to speak both English and French. 'They are saying that if you want to participate in the national conversation, you ought to be able to do it in both languages. And we wouldn't have heard that 20 years ago,' Canada's Commissioner of Official Languages, Graham Fraser, said.
Eighty per cent said they believed that being bilingual could help them find a job. Seventy-eight per cent said it could help with travel and personal development.
Canadian Press - Vancouver Island tremors quiet down 'quickly' (5 February 2007) The latest episode of subterranean tremors on Vancouver Island has ended earlier than expected, seismologists at the Pacific Geoscience Centre in Sidney said on the weekend. 'Things have quieted down very quickly. We don't know why,' said Natural Resources Canada seismologist John Cassidy.
Reuters Canada - Canada purchasing rebounds in January - Ivey (5 February 2007) Purchasing activity in the Canadian economy accelerated at a faster than expected pace in January, the Ivey Purchasing Managers Index showed on Monday. The index rose to 53.8 in January from 49.4 in December. A reading above 50 indicates growth. The January figure was ahead of market expectations of around 52, according to Scotia Capital, and the Canadian dollar began strengthen shortly after the release.
The Globe and Mail - Strong economy causes bankruptcies to fall 4.6 per cent in 2006 (5 February 2007) The number of new bankruptcy cases fell by 4.6 per cent in 2006, the largest decline since 1998, the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy reported. A favourable economic climate and rising employment levels offset rising indebtedness, the federal agency said.
New consumer insolvency cases fell by 4.1 per cent and the number of business insolvencies declined by 10.6 per cent. 'The 4.1 per cent decline in consumer insolvencies can be explained in part by the good performance of the Canadian labour market,' the agency reported and predicted that, in 2007, the number of new insolvency cases could decrease for the second year in a row.
The Globe and Mail - Metals still climbing, miners say (5 February 2007) If the multiyear metals party is in jeopardy, you wouldn't know it from the optimism of 6,000 explorers and miners who gathered in Vancouver to discuss prices and geology. The mood was decidedly upbeat at the annual Mineral Exploration Roundup conference last week, even though cyclical commodities prices have been flying high for several years.
The Globe and Mail - Canada nears European trade treaty (5 February 2007) Canada is quietly entering the latter stages of free trade talks with Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, and Liechtenstein, a treaty that would be the first free-trade deal Canada has endorsed in nearly six years. The four countries negotiating with Canada make up the European Free Trade Association, a group of nations outside the European Union that recently declared they're confident a deal 'could be concluded in the coming months'. Two rounds of talks have taken place, the most recent in Geneva in mid-January. 'Both sides have made significant progress,' said Brooke Grantham, spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade.
Victoria Times Colonist - British Columbia building greenest in Canada (4 February 2007) The $4.5-million operations centre for the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve in Sidney, BC has been given a certification that means it's the most environmentally friendly building in Canada.
The Harbour Road centre is the only building in Canada to have been given a platinum rating by the Canada Green Building Council, their highest. All heating and hot water needs are supplied by an ocean-based geo-exchange system. The building will consume about one-quarter of the energy of conventional heating and mechanical systems, reducing greenhouse-gas emissions by about 32 tonnes annually. All new federal government buildings are to be built to at least a gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standard.
The Toronto Star - Miller touts green vision (4 February 2007) Some of the suggestions in Toronto Mayor David Miller's climate change plan will be 'radical', Miller told the Star. 'We will be the leading environmental city in North America, without question,' he said. 'We will be creative, and we will offer creative suggestions to Torontonians.'
In late March, the council's executive committee will be given a 'blueprint for the city to get to an action plan,' said Lawson Oates, director of the newly created Toronto Environment Office. Miller pledged during his campaign last fall that the city would reduce smog-causing pollutants by 20 per cent by 2012. 'Reducing greenhouse gases is the issue of our time,' he said in his inaugural speech. 'Maybe of all time.'
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.
