3 May was the 3rd day of the eleventh month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

3 May 2007

The Globe and Mail - TSX continues on a roll (3 May 2007) The Toronto stock market moved sharply higher for a second-straight session Thursday. The TSX composite index rose 108.26 points to 13,687.00 after charging ahead 172 points Wednesday.

CBC News - Mutual funds post best April sales in 9 years (2 May 2007) Mutual fund companies had another solid sales month, with the industry posting its best April sales figures since 1998. Net fund sales last month were between C$2.2 billion and C$2.7 billion, according to preliminary estimates by the Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC). So far this year, the Canadian mutual fund industry has posted net sales of almost C$20 billion, thanks to the industry's best RRSP season in nine years. 'Generally, the industry has been in positive sales territory since November 2004, with assets growing steadily since June 2006,' IFIC vice-president Pat Dunwoody said. Total industry assets are now estimated at C$699 billion to C$704 billion.

Canadian Press - MPs want all Cdns monitored for chemicals (3 May 2007) The Commons environment committee is calling for biomonitoring programs to measure toxic chemicals in the bodies of Canadians. In a rare unanimous report, the all-party committee slammed the lack of information about the toxicity of chemicals used in Canada and Canadians' exposure to them. The committee's report makes 31 recommendations to strengthen the Canadian Environmental Protection Act that regulates toxic chemicals. The committee proposes that the onus be shifted to manufacturers to prove the products are safe. Other recommended changes would make it easier for citizens to legally challenge the marketing and use of toxic chemicals, even before there is evidence of damage to health or the environment. Chairman Bob Mills and members of all parties praised the collegiality of the committee, which overcame partisan differences to produce a unanimous report.

Canadian Press - Ottawa No. 1 in top 10 places to live in Canada says MoneySense (3 May 2007) MoneySense magazine has come out with its second annual list of Canada's Best Places to Live after ranking 123 communities. Ottawa was rated as Canada's best overall place to live, said MoneySense features editor Duncan Hood, because it didn't do poorly in any category, had high household incomes but the housing is still relatively affordable—leaving people with more discretionary income for a higher quality of life. Rounding out the top 10 were Halifax, Quebec City, Guelph, Ont., Fredericton, N.B., Kingston, Ont., Moncton, N.B., London, Ont., Victoria and Gander, NL. 'The cities that seem to offer the best quality of life are the cities that allow you to have all the great things about living in a small town ... that offer up workplaces that you can walk to or get to easily without sitting for hours on the highway. Places that offer you the opportunity to own your own home and have a decent-sized lawn. All those great things about smaller communities but they also offer you some of the great things about big cities like higher incomes and more amenities.' Hood said Ottawa would seem to be the perfect balance of the two things.

CBC News - New Arctic research network will study climate change (3 May 2007) Laval University has teamed up with northern aboriginals to create a unique network of eight Arctic research stations that will enable observations on everything from climate change to how southern pollution affects northern foods. Four of the stations will be Inuit-owned. More southerly facilities will look at large animal populations, as well as the presence of contaminants such as mercury and organochlorines in the food chain. Permafrost degradation, wetlands and the slow northward creep of southern plants are also on the research agenda. From a Globe and Mail report on this: The stations will stretch 3,500 kilometres from the southern edge of the boreal forest to the uppermost tip of Canada. 'Climate change is felt by far the most in the Arctic, so the population of the North is more affected than the south,' said Yves Begin, a professor at Laval University who is overseeing the project, funded with a $3-million grant from the Quebec government and the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

The Globe and Mail - The science of soul (3 May 2007) A growing number of studies show how the human body benefits from everything from gratitude to generosity. Dr Post, the president of Case Western Reserve University's Institute for Research on Unlimited Love, believes in the scientific equivalent to 'The Secret', the self-help phenomenon that preaches positivity as a means to personal reward. Dr Post says there is a karma of the brain, where the body physically rewards acts of kindness and forgiveness. 'The remarkable bottom line of the science of love is that giving protects overall health twice as much as Aspirin protects against heart disease,' he says. Dr Post, whose institute offers funding to many of these studies, thinks the culture is ready for a shift toward the positive. And the impulse to take a higher road is not just infecting idealistic young people. Toronto consultant Peggie Pelosi decided she needed to rethink her priorities while working as vice-president at a health sciences company. After establishing a charitable partnership for her employees, she watched their productivity soar. 'We've gotten to the point in our lives where we would like to have some meaning.'

The Toronto Star - Museum will help build `new Canada' (3 May 2007) A new C$25 million 1,800-square-metre museum in Toronto is designed to showcase and preserve the heritage of nearly one million Canadians who trace their roots to the Indian subcontinent. Construction of the museum is based on Vedic engineering principles, said Naresh Roy Patel, a trustee. 'It's being done using the same 10,000-year-old traditions.' The museum will include exhibits on the contributions of Indian civilization to the world in such areas as science, mathematics, medicine, art, and language. It will also serve to chronicle the history and the migration of the Indian Diaspora to Canada. 'The message is one of pluralism—unity in diversity—which will have great importance for all Canadians,' said Patel. Many of the corporate and political leaders who got a sneak peek at the new museum declared it 'awe-inspiring', including federal Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Diane Finley. Guests, including Ontario Immigration Minister Mike Colle, were entertained by sitar, tabla and bharatanatyam performances and enjoyed a four-course vegetarian meal. 'This is the new Canada,' said Colle. 'This is what is so special about Canada because where else in the world would you have the introduction of a civilization that goes back 10,000 years ... that we as Canadians of all walks of life will forever be grateful for.'

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.
