27 February was the 27th day of the eighth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
27 February 2007
Canadian Press - Alberta surplus jumps to C$7 billion, second-largest in province's history (26 February 2007) Finance Minister Lyle Oberg says the hefty surplus shows the need for a plan to deal with extra cash, so a new surplus policy will be announced in April with the budget.
CanWest News Service - $792M in extra revenue (27 February 2007) The Saskatchewan government projects third-quarter revenue will be $195 million higher than expected, and $792.3 million more than was projected in the 2006-07 budget.
The government made two major tax cuts last year, introducing a multi-year reduction of business taxes and cutting the provincial sales tax from seven to five per cent. Finance Minister Andrew Thomson said the current strong financial picture shows the tax cuts were sustainable, with the government losing less in revenue from the tax reductions than it expected thanks to a strong economy.
Reuters Canada - GDP outlook brightened by year-end bounce (27 February 2007) Canada's economy had an unexpected bounce in December from firmer-than-expected performances in the jobs market, retail sales, foreign trade and manufacturing shipments, analysts say. Dale Orr, chief economist at Global Insight, expects the economy to gain more traction throughout 2007, rising to about 3 per cent in the final quarter.
Reuters Canada - Pension assets top C$1 trillion: study (27 February 2007) Surging stock markets in 2006 helped push the assets of Canadian public and private pension plans above C$1 trillion for the first time, a study by research firm Greenwich and Associates said.
Canada's main stock market, the TSX composite index, rose about 14.5 per cent last year, hitting record highs. That helped Canadian corporate pension plans maintain funding ratios at an average 99 per cent, while public and provincial plans averaged 100 per cent, meaning their assets covered their liabilities. The results suggest Canadian pensions are generally in better health than those in other developed countries, Greenwich said.
The Toronto Star - Farm receipts up for third straight year in 2006 (27 February 2007) Farmers received $14.5 billion in crop revenues in 2006, up 7.9 per cent from 2005 and 4.6 per cent above the previous five-year average.
The Toronto Star - Log in, turn down your heat (27 February 2007) About 250 homeowners in Milton will soon be able to go online from work and control the lights, temperature and appliances in their homes through a Bell Canada portal offered through their local utility. Bell hopes to supply its home energy-management system through other electric utilities as the province deploys 'smart meters', digital devices that monitor residential electricity use, making it possible for utilities to create time-of-use pricing.
Ontario is aiming to have 800,000 smart meters deployed by the end of this year, with the rest of the province equipped by 2010. Bell said Ontario has an opportunity to 'create a blueprint' for smart meter programmes throughout North America.
Canadian Press - Doer sees role for provinces in climate change pact (26 February 2007) Manitoba Premier Gary Doer applauded a pact among five western US states to reduce greenhouse gases and said some Canadian provinces could take part. 'We have been working with many of the governors in the west on climate change and renewable energy policies,' said Doer. Arizona, California, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington State have agreed to develop a regional target to lower greenhouse gases.
Sun Media - Albertans going green (26 February 2007) Albertans are among the greenest Canadians in pledging to support eco-friendly businesses, suggests a poll that shows 67 per cent of Canadians say they would switch to using businesses committed to the environment. Albertans rivalled British Columbians and Ontarians in their dedication to green products. The poll showed 70 per cent of Albertans would favour businesses that are environmentally supportive, and 75 per cent would pay more for greener goods and services.
'Something out there is happening—people are different in how they're talking about these things,' John Bennett, executive director of the Climate Action Network said, adding that more people want to take concrete action.
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.
