1 May was the 1st day of the eleventh month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

1 May 2007

The Toronto Star - Premiers' meeting to focus on green ideas (1 May 2007) Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams said that unlike past meetings, where the provincial leaders met to gripe about Ottawa, the premiers would be offering 'constructive' solutions when they meet Tuesday to plot a strategy on climate change. Mindful of public pressure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to curb climate change, Williams said the premiers will discuss energy initiatives such as the east-west grid to transmit clean hydroelectric and wind power across Canada. 'If ... all that Labrador (wind and hydro) power came into Ontario you'd basically replace, I think, half of the greenhouse gases from your coal here in Ontario,' he said. 'As well, it would take (the equivalent of) about 3 million cars off the road annually. It's that kind of magnitude. It's a huge, huge green project.' Ontario Energy Minister Dwight Duncan said the massive east-west transmission line, which received C$586 million in seed money from the federal ecoTrust fund last month, is crucial. 'All of us as Canadians should work together. This is very much, in my view, the railway of the 21st century,' he said.

From a Canadian Press report on this: Premier Jean Charest said Quebec will develop its own green plan while continuing to defend the Kyoto protocol to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. Ontario Premier McGuinty strongly supports a national electricity grid to move green hydroelectric power to provinces that rely more on coal or nuclear-generated power. 'It's a great renewable resource and it doesn't contribute to climate change', McGuinty said.

Canadian Press - Some firms finding going green is actually good for business (29 April 2007) With Canadians consistently ranking the environment and global warming among their top concerns, businesses are increasingly writing green initiatives into their corporate strategies. 'It's easier for retailers because we deal directly with consumers and can impact their lifestyle decisions, and we can work with manufacturers to make some changes fairly quickly,' Home Depot Canada executive Harry Taylor says. 'There are some companies doing really great stuff,' says Stephen Hazell, executive director of the Sierra Club.

The Globe and Mail - Dodge says dollar rose on economy, commodities (1 May 2007) The Canadian dollar has appreciated 6 per cent against the US dollar over the past six weeks. 'We think that in the first quarter of the year that movements in the exchange rate were mostly in line with the movements in the prices of commodities and the robust state of the Canadian economy,' Bank of Canada Governor David Dodge told the House of Commons finance committee today.

From a Bloomberg News report on this: The currency has gained about 4.4 per cent this quarter on evidence of economic strength and commodity gains.

The Victoria Times Colonist - B.C. to ban mandatory retirement (26 April 2007) B.C. Attorney General Wally Oppal tabled legislation that will allow people to keep working after age 65. Premier Gordon Campbell promised last December to end mandatory retirement, a move recommended by the premier's council on aging and seniors' issues. Employers need to make workplaces more flexible, since many seniors say they would have loved to keep on working if they could have job-shared or worked shorter hours, council chairwoman Dr Patricia Baird said. 'That's what we need to do as a society to ensure that we continue to have the benefit of the expertise and experience of older people in the workplace: Make it flexible so they stay.'

The Globe and Mail - Immigrants still love Canada, four years on (30 April 2007) Most new immigrants are happy to be living in Canada, a Statistics Canada study suggests. The study following immigrants for four years after their arrival in Canada found most new immigrants were very positive about their adopted country. The most important reasons immigrants chose to settle in Canada were quality of life, to be close to family and friends, future prospects for their family, and Canada's peaceful nature. 'About two-thirds of them feel that their expectations of life in Canada have been exceeded, met or improved upon,' the report says.

The Toronto Star - A parade of peace (30 April 2007) An estimated 40,000 participated in a parade in Toronto on Sunday (29 April) to celebrate Khalsa Day, the Sikh New Year. Toronto's Khalsa festival has grown into a huge event attended by political leaders of all stripes, including Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, Ontario Conservative leader John Tory, federal Liberal leader St´┐Żephane Dion and Toronto Mayor David Miller. The mayor proclaimed Sunday as Khalsa Day and praised the Sikh objectives of peace and respect.

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.
