2 March was the 2nd day of the ninth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
2 March 2007
CBC News - Canadian economy strengthened at year end, December GDP up 0.4 per cent (2 March 2007) Statistics Canada says the country's economy strengthened at the end of 2006 with gross domestic product rising 0.4 per cent in December. The economy grew at an annualized rate of 1.4 per cent in the fourth quarter, slightly above economists' forecasts.
Growth in December was largely driven by higher personal expenditure, and the strengthening of exports. Both the service and the goods-producing industries increased, with manufacturing, wholesale, and retail trade posting the strongest results. Construction, financial services and tourism-related industries also advanced.
Reuters Canada - Canada quarterly growth eases but upturn seen (2 March 2007) Canada's economy slowed in the fourth quarter, but a surprising rebound in December suggests an upturn this year. Statistics Canada also revised its November growth figure to 0.3 per cent from 0.2 per cent and the October rate to 0.1 per cent from zero. Economists took a 'glass half-full' view of the report because growth sped up in each consecutive month of the period. 'Definitely there are at least some grounds for optimism in the data we saw today out of Canada,' said Doug Porter, deputy chief economist at BMO Capital Markets.
December appeared to be a turning point for the economy. Gross domestic product expanded 0.4 per cent in the month, the highest monthly rate in 2006. '... there's some optimism from the fact that when we look at the monthly detail from the fourth quarter, there's some indication of an upward trend,' said Paul Ferley, assistant chief economist at the Bank of Montreal.
Statistics Canada - Canadian economic accounts (2 March 2007) The economy gained momentum throughout the fourth quarter. The acceleration in exports added significantly to GDP growth in the quarter. Renewed activity in the home resale market was reflected in a 1.9 per cent rise in ownership transfer costs. Growth in the number of housing starts in the fourth quarter provides a signal of renewed investment in residential construction. Labour income strengthened, personal disposable income grew by 1.1 per cent and the saving rate rose in the fourth quarter.
The corporate sector's position as net lender to the rest of the economy strengthened in the quarter. Corporate net saving advanced for the second straight quarter. Government surplus expanded in the fourth quarter. Real GDP grew by 2.7 per cent in 2006, while final domestic demand was up 4.5 per cent. Consumer spending was the leading contributor to real GDP growth in 2006 advancing 4.1 per cent, its best performance since 1997.
Reuters Canada - Canada to study polar ecosystem for climate clues (1 March 2007) A study on the impact of global warming on the Arctic ecosystem, involving more than 200 researchers from 14 countries, is believed to be the largest single study in the International Polar Year programme.
'The research in the project covers everything in the physical world from the bottom of the ocean to the top of the atmosphere ... and everything in the ecological world from viruses to whales,' said David Barber, a sea ice expert leading the study, based at the University of Manitoba.
The study will also involve Inuit and Inuvialuit people who live in the region, who until recently did not have words in their language for such things as bumblebees and sunburn, Barber said. 'We want to integrate the traditional knowledge they hold with the scientific knowledge from these projects.' In total, Canada will spend C$150 million on 44 polar projects, making it the largest International Polar Year participant.
Canadian Press - Bondar hopes kids can lead pro-environment charge (1 March 2007) Dr Roberta Bondar, Canada's first woman in space, will lead a review of how environmental studies are taught in Ontario schools. Adults might be pressed into action if their kids are better educated on environmental ethics, Bondar said.
'This is about making sure we build tomorrow's inventors, tomorrow's scientists, tomorrow's knowledgeable leaders with an ... understanding of why the environment has to be part and parcel of everything,' Ontario Environment Minister Laurel Broten said. Bondar's review is the first task of a new curriculum council, which will advise the province on issues that may need greater attention in Ontario classrooms.
From a Globe and Mail report on this: The council will be chaired by Dennis Thiessen, a professor at the University of Toronto and curriculum leader at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.
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.
