Good news report from Canada, 3 April 2007
3 April was the 3rd day of the tenth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
3 April 2007
Bloomberg News - Canadian Stocks climb to near a record, led by commodity shares (3 April 2007) Canadian stocks rallied close to a record. The TSX Composite Index climbed 95.43, or 0.7 per cent, to 13,361.23 in Toronto on Tuesday, within 0.3 per cent of its 26 Feb. 26 record close of 13,404.46. A gauge of materials companies added 1.8 per cent, and an index of computer-related shares gained 1.6 per cent, while a measure of financial shares rose 0.6 per cent. 'The two things carrying the banks, the strength of the economy and the brokerages, are still good,' said Doug Davis, who helps manage about $380 million as president of Davis-Rea Ltd. Investment in Toronto.
The National Post - Lack of units only snag as market soars (3 April 2007) Home sales are on pace for another record year. The frenzied sales activity is happening almost across the country. Sales for the first two months of the year set records in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and every Atlantic province.
The Calgary Herald - Alberta optimism fuels free spending (3 April 2007) Alberta consumers are confident about the future—and are notably keen on making major household purchases. And that consumer confidence is also fuelling optimism among businesses, according to a survey of 900 Alberta consumers and 420 members of the Calgary and Edmonton Chambers of Commerce. The overall inaugural PricewaterhouseCoopers Confidence Index for Alberta was 113, where any result over 100 indicates a positive, or optimistic, view of the future. However, the related index for major household purchases came in at a whopping 161, while that for future income was 141.
The Globe and Mail - Provincial initiative aims to nurture ties with Asia Pacific (3 April 2007) Bitish Columbia unveiled an Asia Pacific Initiative that states the province should team up with Ottawa to cultivate relationships with China and other key trading partners. The initiative identifies five priority areas, including raising BC's 'global identity' as Canada's Pacific Gateway. About 95 per cent of container traffic and 55 per cent of bulk export cargoes moving through BC ports are Asia Pacific related, while about 60 per cent of Vancouver International Airport's international travellers are Asia Pacific passengers. The Asia Pacific region represents a US$10-trillion market and is BC's second biggest trading partner.
The Globe and Mail - South Korea-US deal paves way for Canada (3 April 2007) Canada-South Korea free-trade talks are expected to move faster now that Seoul and the US have signed a landmark agreement to lower trade barriers. Canadian and South Korean negotiators return to the bargaining table this month.
The Toronto Star - Private-school families get tax break (3 April 2007) Under a new budget measure, scholarships and bursaries to attend elementary and secondary school will now be fully tax exempt. Jim Christopher, executive director of the Canadian Association of Independent Schools, said this would apply primarily at about 100 exclusive schools, such as Toronto's Upper Canada College or Ottawa's Ashbury College, that are able to offer generous scholarships and bursaries, but added that it's not 'a perk for the wealthy'. On the contrary, the elite schools offer scholarships to those who would otherwise be unable to afford their steep tuition, as high as $45,000 a year for boarding schools.
'We'd like to provide access to the best and the brightest, regardless of ability to pay, and there is money to do this (through scholarships) but it works against them if they still have to turn around and pay a fairly hefty tax penalty for accepting a scholarship.' That tax bill will now be zero.
CBC News - BC sets up overseas scholarship fund (2 April 2007) The BC government is offering scholarships up to $3,000 to help post-secondary students study abroad, with a particular emphasis on Asia. Premier Campbell made the announcement at the government's First Annual Student Congress, aimed at letting students discuss issues important to them, saying it's important to give students a worldly outlook. The scholarships can be used for co-op work, internships, and other forms of formal or experiential learning.
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.
