30 April was the 30th day of the tenth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

30 April 2007

Reuters Canada - Canada surprises with strong Feb economic growth (30 April 2007) Canada's economy grew faster than expected in February. Statistics Canada reported that gross domestic product expanded 0.4 per cent in February, double the average forecast of analysts in a Reuters poll and up sharply from 0.1 per cent in January. The manufacturing sector had a respectable 0.3 per cent growth in the month. Overall, production by goods-producing industries jumped 1.0 per cent, a pace not seen since August 2005. In its revised projections for the Canadian economy on Thursday, the central bank slightly raised its GDP forecast for the first quarter of this year to 2.5 per cent from 2.4 per cent.

Bloomberg News - Canadian economy grew more than expected in February (30 April 2007) Canada's economy grew for a fifth straight month in February, an expansion that backs the central bank's estimate that growth accelerated in the first quarter. 'When you take February's growth along with January's gain, the prospects for first-quarter growth are very, very good,' said Benoit Durocher, an economist with Mouvement Desjardins in Montreal. First-quarter growth probably climbed to 3 per cent, he said, faster than the central bank's 2.5 per cent estimate. Canadian employers added 158,000 new jobs in the first quarter, stimulating consumer demand.

From aGlobe and Mail report on this: Both the goods and services sides of the economy expanded. Wholesale trade, manufacturing, and financial services posted gains for the month. Economists at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce boosted their forecast for first-quarter GDP to 3.2 per cent from 2.8 per cent.

From a Statistics Canada report on this: February saw gains in non-residential building construction of 1.0%, as activity increased on new industrial and commercial buildings. The home resale market moved higher-priced residences in February. Wholesale trade posted a healthy 1.0% gain in February. This increase was propelled by strong trade in computers and other electronic equipment, and household and personal products.

Bloomberg News - Canada's dollar advances to seven-month high as economic growth quickens (30 April 2007) Canada's dollar strengthened to a seven-month high and the price of the benchmark bond rose the most in almost 10 months after a report showed economic growth quickened in February for a fifth month. The Canadian dollar climbed 0.6 per cent to 90.08 US cents at 4.15 p.m. in Toronto, from 89.57 US cents on April 27. The Canadian currency reached 90.51 US cents today, the highest since 7 Sept. 'There's a lot of bullish sentiment' for the Canadian dollar, said Dustin Reid, a senior currency strategist in Chicago at ABN Amro Bank NV. 'The fundamental story remains very strong for Canada, both from a growth perspective and an employment perspective.'

From a Toronto Star report on this: News of an unexpected surge in economic growth in Canada provided a lift to the dollar. Canada's gross domestic product was 2.1 per cent higher in February from a year earlier, while growth over a three-month period was at a solid annual rate of 3.6 per cent.

Bloomberg News - Canada outgrows China as newest market for worldwide borrowers (30 April 2007) Canada is the fastest-growing market for international borrowers. Canada's supremacy as the capital market of choice for companies has a lot to do with the government's balanced budgets, some of the lowest interest rates anywhere, and a 2-year-old law that lets pension funds own as much foreign debt as they want without a tax penalty. Ottawa has reduced its outstanding debt giving bond investors fewer options at home. While the $21.3 billion of so-called Maple bonds represent 10 per cent of the Yankee debt sold by international issuers in the US last year, the Canadian market is growing twice as fast and may exceed $50 billion in 2007.

The Toronto Star - Still within our grasp (29 April 2007) The provinces are taking the lead. British Columbia came much closer to Kyoto by committing in February to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to 10 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020. Both Manitoba and Quebec have committed to reaching Kyoto targets by 2012. 'I think we can reach further and we intend to do that here in Ontario when we put out our climate change plan,' Ontario Premier McGuinty said on Friday.

The Toronto Star - Greener buildings closer (30 April 2007) Toronto Mayor David Miller told a public forum on the city's proposed climate change plan of the likelihood that the city council would decide by 31 Dec. to impose standards that would require all new commercial and residential buildings to meet stringent environmental standards for measures such as energy efficiency and indoor air quality. Toronto has had a voluntary standard for about a year. If the standard becomes mandatory, Toronto would become a North American leader in green buildings. Officials said Toronto's standard would be even tougher because it requires some measures that are optional under the LEED green building rating system, and adds a few more, including high-rise windows designed so that birds won't crash into them. Most measures pay for themselves over a few years in lower energy costs. The climate change plan goes to the full council in July. 'The time for action is now,' Miller told the forum.

Canadian Press - B.C. unveils hydrogen bus fleet (30 April 2007) BC Premier Campbell told an international hydrogen and fuel cells conference Monday the province will provide C$45 million towards the production of 20 buses and development of hydrogen fuelling stations in Whistler and Victoria. He said BC's goal is to have the fuel-cell buses on the road by the end of 2009, as part of the province's commitment to reducing greenhouse gases. Mr Campbell said the funding will ensure that a hydrogen highway running from Whistler to Vancouver will become a reality, and will extend to San Diego by 2010. No pollutants or greenhouse gases are emitted when pure hydrogen is used. The only byproducts fuel cells produce are pure water and heat.

The Globe and Mail - Researchers nudge 'God particle' search along (30 April 2007) The search for the 'God particle' is inching forward this week in Vancouver, with top physicists from across the country gathering at Simon Fraser University. All are part of the ATLAS Experiment, a $9.5 billion particle-accelerator project aimed at finding an elusive subatomic particle called the Higgs boson, dubbed the God particle, that could answer one of the three great remaining mysteries of particle physics: Why does matter have mass? Involving 7,000 scientists from 54 countries, ATLAS will be the biggest physics experiment ever. SFU physics professor Michel Vetterli is the head of a consortium building a C$23 million computing centre in Canada that will parse a vast amount of data emerging from the particle accelerator in Europe in search of the God particle. Its discovery could shed new light on basic workings of the universe, including incorporating the force of gravity into a unified physics theory.

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.
