17 February was the 17th day of the eighth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

17 February 2007

Canadian Press - TSX's torrid run continues (16 February 2007) Toronto's TSX composite index closed at a record high for the third straight session, rising 23.79 points on Friday to 13,311.95, up 271 points on the week.

From a Bloomberg News report on this: Canadian stocks rose to a record Friday (16 February), extending a week-long rally. The benchmark index notched its fifth weekly gain in six weeks.

From a National Post report on this: The benchmark index was up 1.7 per cent on the week. The materials sector has gained about 14 per cent since the beginning of January.

'It's been very volatile in the marketplace but on balance the Canadian market, and to a lesser extent the American market, both have climbed that wall of worry,' said Irwin Michael, portfolio manager at ABC Funds.

The Globe and Mail - Vancouver city planners seeing green (17 February 2007) Two condo complexes that officials say broke 'every rule in the book' of city building and planning are being touted as the new, green face of Vancouver's eco-density project. City officials were lauded for allowing builders to violate standard rules in favour of unconventional use of land for more energy-efficient and less wasteful buildings. Vancouver planning director Brent Toderian told reporters the goal of the project is to make Vancouver a model in sustainability, an urban environmental leader in North America.

Vancouver is embarking on a grand project, several city planners said. One example of eco-density is on West 10th Avenue, where a modern four-storey complex looks like any traditional block of condos. But once inside, visitors enter a common courtyard of 10 two-storey homes. Each home is naturally lighted by energy-saving windows on three sides. The designer, city architect Oliver Lang, said the complex is an improvement over standards, which he lauded city officials for allowing the builders to violate. 'We need more flexibility in the bylaws,' said Mr Lang, who teaches at UBC's architecture school.

The Toronto Star - Wilson pushes Cuba connection (17 February 2007) Canada is prepared to draw on its long relationship with Cuba to act as a 'bridge' between Washington and Havana in the post-Castro era, Canadian Ambassador to the US Michael Wilson says. He said Canada has developed relations not only with officials in Fidel Castro's government, but can also draw on its business investments and tourism spending in Cuba.

'Because of that dialogue, we have an understanding of how Cuba thinks. We also have an understanding of how Washington thinks. Cuba sees us as a North American country with which they can have some sort of dialogue,' Wilson said. 'We can build a greater understanding between the two countries.'

The Globe and Mail - Canada quietly makes contact with Libya (17 February 2007) In Libya last week, four Canadian senators chatted global politics with Moammar Gadhafi, the first official contact between the countries since the Conservatives took office. The Conservative Speaker of the Senate, Noël Kinsella, led the Canadian delegation, which also included Liberal David Smith, Progressive Conservative Nancy Ruth and Independent Marcel Prud'homme.

The senators signed an agreement with Colonel Gadhafi calling for closer ties between the two countries, including more frequent visits between Canadian and Libyan politicians and private-sector exchanges of officials working in areas such as oil, agriculture, and ports. The Senate Speaker's Office said the visit was purely parliamentary and did not represent the Canadian government.

In an interview, Alhussein Elzawawi, Libya's deputy chief of mission in Ottawa, said Libya had invited the Canadian Parliament to send a delegation for a visit and the Senate Speaker responded. 'We are very seriously looking to improve our relationship between our two countries,' he said. 'This was a very successful visit.'

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.
