9 April was the 9th day of the tenth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

9 April 2007

Bloomberg News - Canada stocks rise to record on US jobs; railroad shares jump (9 April 2007) Canada's main stock index rose to a record as a stronger-than-expected US jobs report allayed concern that demand for Canadian exports will slow. The TSX Composite Index gained 57.31 to 13,482.33. A measure of industrial companies rose 2.6 per cent, taking its year-to-date gain to 9.8 per cent, the most among 10 industry groups. 'The jobs report is helping sentiment,' said Paul Hand, managing director of equity trading, RBC Capital Markets in Toronto.

The National Post - Small business barometer points to rising confidence in Canadian economy (9 April 2007) The confidence of small- to mid-size businesses is rising as more than one third of firms (35%) say they are doing better than they were a year ago, and 44% expect a stronger performance during the next three months, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. The CFIB's 'Business Barometer' stands at 108.7, up from 107 in December. 'This . . . corresponds with a sustainable 2.5% to 3% growth rate in Canada's GDP,' said Ted Mallett, CFIB's chief economist. The survey found that 51% of respondents expect stronger performance during the next 12 months, compared with only 14% expecting a weaker year ahead. Businesses in British Columbia and Alberta continue to be the most optimistic. The confidence barometer is also rising for Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick.

The Globe and Mail reports (9 April 2007) George Vasic, chief strategist for UBS Securities Canada, expects TSX companies will finish 2007 with double-digit profit growth for the fifth straight year. UBS is calling for earnings expansion to remain very strong at 13 per cent 'To me, the real story is that non-resource earnings remain relatively solid,' Mr. Vasic said. Canada's economy will also boost corporate profits, he said, noting that consumer demand and the labour market are both strong.

Canadian Press - University of Toronto to sell shares in tobacco industry: student group (9 April 2007) A student group says the University of Toronto has decided to sell its investments in the tobacco industry. The group E-BUTT—Education Bringing Youth Tobacco Truths—says the decision is a first for a postsecondary institution in Canada. The university is the 24th institute of higher education in North America to divest its tobacco holdings.

CBC News - Cut trans fats from food supply, health groups tell Ottawa (5 April 2007) Harmful trans fats should be eliminated from Canada's food supply, health advocates told the government. The report by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and Toronto Public Health calls on the government to act on last summer's recommendations from a federal task force that sought a trans fat limit of two per cent of total fat content in margarine and five per cent in all other foods. 'Trans [fats] are not a choice, they're a killer,' said Sally Brown, CEO of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, who co-chaired the task force. Last week, the parliamentary committee on health report on childhood obesity also called for the task force's recommendations to be adopted.

Sun Media - Manitobans warm to geothermal (9 April 2007) Manitobans are leading the nation in a new geothermal wave. 'For me, No. 1 is the health of my family,' said Steve Klassen, who chose a geothermal heating and cooling system for his new home. 'The geothermal system does not produce dust because it doesn't burn the air to heat it up. It's a gentler heat with a very constant temperature.' Klassen said reduced greenhouse gas emissions and energy bill savings were key incentives, and he projects that he'll spend just $600 per year to heat and cool his home as compared with his $300 energy bill for this February alone.

Geothermal heating system installations in Manitoba rose to a milestone 5,000 this spring. Manitoba has 3.6% of the national population but accounts for 20-25% of installations. This week's provincial budget raised Manitoba Hydro loans to install such systems from $15,000 to $20,000. Manitoba Hydro estimates geothermal heat can save homeowners 50% to 70% on annual heating costs.

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.
