24 April was the 24th day of the tenth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

24 April 2007

The Windsor Star - City to host Rotary peace summit next year (22 April 2007) Windsor beat out international cities such as Paris and London to host the first-ever Rotary World Peace Summit. Rotary International's 1.2 million members in more than 200 countries will be encouraged to visit Windsor 25-27 April 2008 for the event, which is meant to foster world peace and increase awareness of Rotary's role in promoting that objective. Local Rotary governor-elect Jennifer Jones said the city's designation as an International Peace City helped convince Rotary International to choose Windsor. Notable speakers recognized world-wide will make presentations and keynote addresses, and an internationally-renowned musical act will perform in a community 'peace concert'.

The Saskatoon StarPhoenix - City of the future (24 April 2007) Foreign Direct Investment magazine, a Financial Times publication, says Saskatoon has an economic potential that is among the best in a ranking of smaller North American cities. The magazine judged Saskatoon, and 107 other North American cities in seven categories—economic potential, cost effectiveness, human resources, quality of life, infrastructure, business friendliness, and development and investment promotion. Cities with a good balance of these factors made it onto a top 10 list of cities of the future. Winners were chosen for major cities with more two million residents, large cities with more than 500,000 people, small cities with more than 100,000 residents, and 'micro' cities with less than 100,000. Chicago was named the top major city of the future, with Toronto in second place, and Windsor, Ont., as the top small city of the future. Saskatoon was No. 10 on the list of small cities of the future.

The Regina Leader-Post - Saskatchewan can be a climate leader: Gore (24 April 2007) Saskatchewan can act as the 'tipping point' that encourages Canada to keep its obligations on climate change, former US vice-president Al Gore told a Regina audience. Addressing climate change also doesn't mean a choice between the economy and the environment, Gore said. Gore applauded Saskatchewan's leadership in areas such as wind power. Premier Lorne Calvert, who introduced Gore at the event, acknowledged Saskatchewan can do more to address climate change. The province's climate plan will be announced in a couple of weeks. 'We will be setting out some very, very challenging goals for all of us,' Environment Minister John Nilson said.

The Globe and Mail - Saskatchewan cracking down on workplace bullies (23 April 2007) Saskatchewan already prohibits harassment on grounds such as race, religion, and gender. A proposed amendment broadens the definition of harassment to target any repeated behaviour that is intended to humiliate or intimidate a co-worker. If passed, Saskatchewan will be the second jurisdiction in North America, after Quebec, to ban bullying in the workplace.

The National Post - March leading indicator up by 0.4 percent (24 April 2007) Canada's composite leading indicator rose by 0.4 per cent in March from February, reinforcing its 0.7 per cent gain the month before. 'Household spending remained the driving force of growth, boosted by a robust labour market. Financial conditions remained buoyant, with the stock market hitting a new record,' Statscan said Tuesday.

From a Canadian Press report on this: The housing market remained strong in the first quarter, which helped stimulate more purchases of furniture and appliances.

Canadian Press - Bank of Canada holds the line on interest rates; overnight rate at 4.25% (24 April 2007) The Bank of Canada kept its key interest rate at 4.25 per cent Tuesday, saying the risk of inflation is not sufficient to require hiking the overnight target rate. This leaves the commercial banks' prime lending rate, the benchmark for consumer and business borrowing, at six per cent. Economic growth has been in line with expectations, the bank's statement said. Overall, the Canadian economy has been operating at just above its production capacity in the first quarter of this year, the bank said. Robust domestic demand continues to be the main driver, while strong growth outside North America is pushing up demand and prices for commodities.

From a Bloomberg News report on this: 'The Bank continues to judge that the risks to its inflation projection are roughly balanced,' bank policy makers said in a statement today, echoing a phrase used since July.

Bloomberg News - Dodge may keep Canadian rates steady for longest stretch in five decades (23 April 2007) Some economists predict no interest rate changes before Bank of Canada Governor David Dodge's term ends in January, capping the longest pause since 1954. 'It's almost an ideal world for the Bank of Canada,' said Doug Porter, an economist with BMO Capital Markets in Toronto. Core inflation, which discounts items such as fruit and gasoline, hovers near Dodge's 2 per cent target, and the economy's 'close to full capacity', he said. The world's eighth-biggest economy has remained stable during global turmoil in part because Dodge hasn't overreacted to events.

Canadian Press - Free-trade talks with South Korea on fast track: Emerson (23 April 2007) Trade Minister David Emerson says he's speeding ahead with free-trade talks with South Korea and expects to sign a deal this year. Emerson says he's committed to signing more free trade and investment agreements with the world.

The National Post - Wal-Mart nurturing bigger green thumbs (24 April 2007) Wal-Mart Canada will almost double the size of its garden centres in a bid to win a bigger share of the hot growth category worth $3.8-billion. This development is seen as part of a larger trend: more than 9.3 million Canadians like to garden, up 13% from 2004. Gardening is Canada's second-most popular physical activity after walking. Industry consultants say Baby Boomers fuelled the trend, while a younger and more eco-conscious consumer is experimenting more with vegetable gardens.

Canadian Press - Report makes 52 recommendations for B.C.'s post-secondary education system (23 April 2007) 'To invest in learning is to lay the human foundations of the future,' said a 108-page report commissioned by the government. The report states that the government must support initiatives that improve continued excellence in post-secondary education and attract more students, including adults and Aboriginals. 'A belief in the fundamental importance of education is at the heart of the government's ''great goal'' to make BC ''the best-educated, most literate jurisdiction in North America by 2015'',' the report said. 'We need to develop a sense of collective purpose to guide our effort, with a heightened emphasis on collaboration and co-ordination of effort. We need to work better together.'

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.
