28th July was the 28th day of the first month of the 2nd year of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
28 July 2007
The National Post - Manufacturers still smiling in third quarter (27 July 2007) Canadian manufacturers are surprisingly bullish about the state of their industry in the third quarter, a Statistics Canada report showed. Manufacturers remained positive about production prospects in the July-to-September period, particularly in Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. The positive sentiment in both the second and third quarters of this year was the most upbeat since October 2004. Employment prospects were also optimistic, with roughly 68 per cent of manufacturers saying they would keep their current workforce, while 17 per cent expect to increase it. The survey was conducted in the first two weeks of July.
From a Bloomberg News report on this: Manufacturers expect production to rise between July and September, with the first back-to-back gains in almost three years. Twenty-five percent of managers said new orders are rising.
From a Canadian Press report on this: Manufacturers are surprisingly upbeat about their prospects for increasing production and hiring more workers. Also surprising was that the positive outlook showed little regional bias.
Canadian Press - Travel industry profits to reach a new high for second year, says Conference Board (26 July 2007) Strong travel spending by Canadians will enable Canada's hoteliers to post their second consecutive year of record profits in 2007, according to a study by an economic think tank.
Canadian Press on bankruptcies fall in June compared to May (26 July 2007) New figures show that bankruptcies were down significantly in June compared to May. June's total of 7,132 bankruptcies marks a sharp decline from May, when 8,008 were recorded. It is also fewer than the 7,410 bankruptcies recorded in June 2006.
Canadian Press - Average payroll earnings increase $1.47 a week in May: StatsCan (26 July 2007) The average weekly earnings of payroll employees increased to C$766.32 in May, C$1.47 more than in April. The year-to-date growth, calculated as the average of the first five months of 2007 compared with the average of the same five months in 2006, was 2.9 per cent.
CanWest News Service - Green realtors push for mandatory energy audits before house can be listed (28 July 2007) 'Within five years, we hope to have mandatory energy audits on every resale home,' says Elden Freeman, executive director of the non-profit National Association of Green Agents and Brokers, which has 15,000 members.
Canadian Press - Construction begins at first commercial wind farm in N.L. (27 July 2007) Construction has started on Newfoundland's first commercial wind farm. The C$55 million NeWind farm will have the potential to power 6,800 homes. The project is part of a 20-year agreement that Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro signed in January with NeWind. The 27-megawatt project is expected to be in full operation by the end of 2008. Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro, which operates a system that is isolated from the North American power grid, produces 65 per cent of its power through hydroelectricity. The company has awarded contracts for more than 50 megawatts of wind power.
From a CBC News report on this: 'Wind is a common and very reliable source of energy on the island,' NeWind president Pascal Brun told CBC News.
The Vancouver Sun on investing in alternative energy (26 July 2007) 'At Deloitte, we believe this is going to be one of the world's next big industries. We believe that not just millions, but billions—and possibly trillions—of dollars of capital will be invested and made,' says Duncan Stewart, Deloitte Canada's director of research for technology, media, telecom, and life sciences. There are already about 80 so-called green technology companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the TSX Venture Exchange, with a total market value of about C$3.8 billion. They range from fuel-cell makers and solar power firms to fledgling wind-power and biomass energy outfits. There is also a handful of Canadian mutual funds that brand themselves as green funds or socially responsible ethical funds, with a partial focus on alternative energy.
The Globe and Mail - Tsawwassen band backs historic urban treaty (26 July 2007) Members of the small Tsawwassen First Nations made history, as they voted strongly in favour of a comprehensive treaty with the federal and provincial (British Columbia) governments, ending their long governance by the Indian Act. The treaty is the first to be approved by a native group under the province's treaty process. It is also the province's first modern urban treaty and likely the first of its kind in Canada. The treaty is said to be worth C$120 million to the 370 band members. It provides more than 400 hectares of new land added to the reserve's existing 290 hectares, C$16 million in cash, and more than C$36 million in programme funding. No one was more pleased than the Tsawwassen First Nation's dynamic chief Kim Baird. 'I'm ecstatic that we received such strong support from the community,' Chief Baird told reporters. 'Our community has sent a clear message to us that this is the way forward for our community.'
From a Canadian Press report on this: 'There are huge ramifications for this. There are other first nations that are hoping this is going to be a template for them,' First Nations Summit Chief Judith Sayers said.
From a Vancouver Sun report on this: Tsawwassen band member Ruth Adams, an elder, sees a positive future of economic self-sufficiency for her band, free from the ties of the federal Indian Act.
From a Vancouver Province report on this: The band will now set up its own legislature to run its government and set laws, and the band can sit on the Greater Vancouver Regional District.
The Globe and Mail - Province, Squamish Nation ink land-use deal (27 July 2007) The Squamish Nation and the B.C. government have agreed to a land-use deal officials touted as another sign of a 'new relationship' between the province and its native bands, that came on the heels of the historic treaty ratification in Tsawwassen. 'Whether they are land-use agreements, or whether they are a treaty of the sort that we saw ratified in Tsawwassen, these are exciting expressions of a new commitment towards mutual respect and reconciliation,' said Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation Minister Mike de Jong. The land-use agreement was the result of a collaborative effort between the band and the province. It includes designating portions of the band's traditional lands as 'wildland zones' where commercial recreation and mining are permitted, but commercial forest harvesting is barred. Other sections are set aside as cultural sites, where development must not affect the bands' sacred places or wildlife habitat. And about 11,000 hectares near Clendinning and Tantalus provincial parks are deemed conservancies and must be left untouched. The agreement encompasses about 8 per cent of the Squamish Nation's traditional land.
From a Toronto Star report on this: Most of the Sims Creek Valley and part of the Elaho will also be designated as a wildland zone, where mining and tourism are permitted but not commercial logging. The announcement had members of the Western Canada Wilderness Committee 'jumping for joy'. Campaign director Joe Foy says his group 'has been working to see the upper Elaho and Sims valleys protected since 1995', which the committee describes as the largest unprotected old-growth forests left in the region.
