26 March was the 26th day of the ninth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

26 March 2007

The Globe and Mail - Halifax looks east to rising India trade (26 March 2007) Early explorers to Canada's East Coast had long hoped to find a passage to India. Halifax Port Authority president Karen Oldfield figures she has access to just such a passage—through the Suez Canal—and that it will give Halifax new life as a bustling gateway for Indian goods into North America. Q: Your pitch is that you are much closer to India than are the Pacific ports. A: The magic number is 1,840 nautical miles closer. People have been talking about the Suez Express in relation to Halifax for many, many years, but the stars and the moon didn't really line up until now. Q: Can you believe this will be the economic giant of the 21st century? A: The sheer numbers are staggering. There are more millionaires in India than we have people in Canada. There is a big economic divide, but you can actually see the middle class growing and prospering. . . .

Canadian Press - PM plans Latin American tour to promote Canada as key ally (25 March 2007) The prime minister is planning a trip to Latin America and the Caribbean this summer to strengthen ties with a host of new leaders in the region. Senior officials have been duly instructed that Latin America is a priority. One of the issues on the table is that of unresolved free-trade deals between Canada and Central America, and Canada and the Caribbean. 'We should place a particular focus on trade and investment opportunities in the Americas because of our historic cultural and political ties, our existing corporate links, and the tremendous growth potential and proximity of these markets,' Scotiabank President Rick Waugh said.

Bloomberg News - Canadian Stocks Rise on LionOre Takeover, Oil (26 March 2007) Canadian stocks rose for a second day on Monday. The TSX Composite Index rose 65.22, or 0.5 percent, to 13,302.88 in Toronto, leaving the benchmark about 0.8 percent below its Feb. 26 closing record of 13,404.46.

Bloomberg News - Canada's Flaherty to Push US for Free Trade Agreement for Securities (23 March 2007) Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said he plans to push for the removal of restrictions on cross-border securities trading. He said a free trade agreement with the US could act as a model for similar agreements within the Group of Eight (G8) countries. By removing the border for securities, investors could save as much as 60 per cent on commissions because they wouldn't need to pay a broker in each country, TSX Chief Executive Officer Richard Nesbitt said.

The Globe and Mail - The greening of the corner office (26 March 2007) The latest C-Suite Survey conducted between mid-February and mid-March for Report on Business shows top corporate executives are deeply worried about climate change, and the environment has bubbled close to the top of corporate concerns. Almost 90 per cent of respondents said they are worried about climate change, with fully one third saying they are 'very concerned' about the issue. More than three quarters support federal regulations to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Most executives said they strongly believe non-politicised dialogue is a precursor to solving global warming and pollution.

The National Post - Blueprint for a green city unveiled (24 March 2007) Toronto's blueprint for a green city calls for Toronto to meet Kyoto Protocol targets, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 6% over the next four years, with emissions dropping 30% by 2020 and 80% by 2050. (All of the targets use 1990 levels as their baseline.) Smog-causing pollutants are also addressed, with the city proposing a 20% reduction by 2012, with respect to 2004 levels. Residents could receive tax rebates for buying high efficiency boilers or furnaces and installing green roofs. The plan also proposes providing money to install solar heating panels and 'green mortgages' to finance energy retrofits. The report suggests requiring food retailers to label fruits and vegetables with their shipping distance, a measure aimed at encouraging residents to select local goods. 'This framework sets out an uncompromising commitment by the city of Toronto to lead on environmental issues,' Mayor David Miller said.

The Globe and Mail report on this - City report urges 30-per-cent cut in greenhouse gases by 2020 (24 March 2007) The city's new 'climate change and clean air action plan' was instantly hailed by environmental groups. The report will be the basis for public consultations before decisions are made by city council over the summer. The report suggests mandatory green building standards for new buildings, including businesses and residences, by 2012 at the latest and retrofitting 50 per cent of single-family homes and small businesses by 2020. Among other proposals: Complete a 1,000-kilometre bicycle path network by 2012; expand deep-lake-water cooling to meet 90 per cent of space cooling needs in the downtown by 2020; meet 25 per cent of energy demand in the Toronto area from renewable sources by 2020.

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.
