1 March was the 1st day of the ninth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
1 March 2007
The National Post - Housing sales set record (1 March 2007) Housing sales across the country set an all-time record in January. 'There may be some people who moved to the stock market who will come back to real estate,' Don Lawb, chief executive of Century 21 Canada said. 'But the economy is good and so is consumer confidence and that's even more important to real estate.'
Sales in 2007 could match 2006 figures which were the second best on record, said Peter Norman, vice-president of Clayton Research, arguing early indications are that the housing market is pretty stable. From a CBC News report on this: 'While unseasonably warm weather may have boosted sales activity in January, transactions also rose in each of the three previous months,' Canadian Real Estate Association chief economist Gregory Klump said.
The Toronto Star - Commercial real estate returns 19 per cent (1 March 2007) Canadian commercial real estate returned almost 19 per cent for a second year in 2006, 0.1 percentage points less than the record achieved in 2005, as the economy expanded and unemployment reached its lowest level in 30 years.
Returns in Edmonton were 35 per cent and 30 per cent in Calgary. Vancouver had returns of 23 per cent. Toronto and Ottawa both posted 13 per cent returns. Offices were the best-performing commercial property assets last year for the first time in nine years, achieving a return of 21 per cent.
Sun Media - Calgarians becoming water wise (28 February 2007) Calgarians are catching the city's water recycling wave and are well ahead of plans to curb consumption by 30 per cent in the next 30 years, a status report on the city's water sustainability programme delivered to the utilities and environment committee suggests.
Per capita demand for water dipped to 451 litres per day in 2006, heading to a 2033 target of 350 litres. In 1986, the per capita demand for water was more than 700 litres per day. Peak demand, which is the most taxing day of the year on the city's water resources, was well below the 900-million litre target, hitting 692 million litres on 7 Aug, 2006.
Canadian Press - University of Manitoba to carry out Canada's largest Int'l Polar Year project (1 March 2007) About 40 scientists from the University of Manitoba are preparing for one of the largest research projects ever to be conducted in the Arctic. The university will lead a 14-country team of 200 researchers, who will spend a year studying northern ice to learn more about the impact of climate change. Several other Canadian universities and projects will share $150 million in federal funding, but the U of M project will be the biggest in Canada and one of the largest in the world. At the rate sea ice is disappearing, the Arctic will be ice-free by 2050. The Inuit will also participate by monitoring ice conditions and combining that information with their own historical observations.
The Montreal Gazette - Greenpeace gives Charest's government a passing grade (27 February 2007) The Quebec government was credited by Greenpeace for adopting an energy policy, promoting wind power, creating a fund to expand mass transit, and having one of the best articulated programs to fight climate change in Canada.
Canadian Press - Canada seventh on tourism list (1 March 2007) Canada ranks seventh in a new study of world tourism destinations in a survey of 124 countries by the World Economic Forum. 'I would say in general it is a very good assessment of Canada,' Irene Mia, a senior economist with the World Economic Forum, said. Canada ranked second in the world on air transport infrastructure and fourth on business environment and infrastructure.
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.
