8 October was the 8th day of the fourth month of the 2nd year of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
8 October 2007
The Globe and Mail - Jobs, dollar, wages - Canada surges forward (6 October 2007) Canada's jobless rate surprisingly fell to a 33-year low last month and wages are rising at the fastest pace in at least a decade. The Statistics Canada report, followed by the Bank of Canada's quarterly business outlook survey showing business optimism remains high, paint a picture of an economy unfazed by credit woes. The reports sent the Canadian dollar on another flight Friday, ending up 1.1 per cent for the week. 'If you landed here from Mars and you were shown these reports, you wouldn't believe it was occurring in the midst of a crisis in the credit markets. It's quite remarkable,' said Patricia Croft, chief economist at Phillips, Hager & North.
The National Post - Jobs machine keeps on chugging (6 October 2007) The North American jobs machine continued to rev in September. The Canadian economy created 51,000 jobs. Year-to-date, job creation totalled more than 283,000 positions, the best showing in five years. Down south, US payrolls expanded by 110,000 in September and a 4,000 drop in August was revised up to an 89,000 gain. The figures calmed US recession fears and sent stock markets soaring. Most important, many economists now believe the global economy has put the summer credit crisis behind it. The Canadian economy appears robust with the labour market tight, wages rising, the housing market still hot, and consumers in spending mode.
The National Post - Behold the power of green (6 October 2007) A plane filled with corporate financiers flew to Toba Inlet north of Powell River, British Columbia recently to witness local First Nations bless a new C$660-million clean energy project by green power developer Plutonic Power Corp. In the past year, BC Premier Gordon Campbell's commitment to making BC energy self-sufficient by 2016, and to producing 90% of its electricity from clean sources, has presented an enormous opportunity for small producers like Plutonic and a growing coterie of publicly-traded companies. BC plans to triple the amount of privately-generated power it buys over the next decade. That policy is part of the reason Canada has risen to seventh place in a global renewable power investment attractiveness index compiled by Ernst & Young LLP. According to that index, global renewable energy investment is forecast to be US$750-billion by 2016, a huge rise over the US$100-billion invested in 2006. Some of those billions are already earmarked for BC, ahead of a BC Hydro call for 5,000 gigawatt-hours of electricity planned for early next year—a call that potentially became much more lucrative for wind and hydro developers when BC Hydro announced earlier this month it would accept only applications for clean, greenhouse gas-free, power. Plutonic has also created a model for working on native territory by brokering employment and royalty deals with local First Nations. 'We've spent probably the last 20 years managing poverty and because of this power project we are going to spend the next 20 managing opportunity. And that's pretty exciting,' says Klahoose Chief Ken Brown.
The Toronto Star - Eden Mills contemplates a heavenly future (6 October 2007) The Ontario village of Eden Mills, population 350, wants to become the first carbon neutral community in North America. Arriving at a zero balance will call for reducing emissions, substituting renewable energy for energy based on fossil fuels, and removing CO2 from the air. The idea of going carbon neutral was brought home to Eden Mills in June by Charles and Anna Simon, fresh from a visit to Ashton Hayes, which is aiming to be England's first carbon neutral village. Ashton Hayes claims to have reduced CO2 emissions by 20 per cent in its first year. Organizers will work with the University of Guelph to measure the environmental footprint of households in the village. They will record emissions attributable to heating and cooling, appliances, and transportation, and will repeat the survey every year for the first five years to measure progress at each household. The village will also plant trees to absorb CO2 and intends to create a scientific advisory board to provide ongoing advice. 'We're not powerless. Together we can do things,' says Charles Simon.
The Canadian Press - PM pledges cash for northern research (5 October 2007) Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced more than C$40 million for a string of northern research projects on Friday. Harper issued a list of the final 26 projects selected by the government as part of its C$150 million commitment to International Polar Year, which started last month. Another 43 projects were announced earlier. The new research includes studies on how polar bears, seals, whales and sharks are adapting to climate change, investigations of pollutants in the Arctic and where they come from, research into Arctic lakes and rivers, permafrost and the northern oceans as well as a series of studies on the health of northerners.
CBC News - Saskatchewan boosts spending for arts, music, culture (5 October 2007) Saskatchewan announced what it calls the largest single cultural investment it's ever made: C$4.5 million. The money is designed to help artists, musicians and cultural-based businesses and organizations. It's part of the government's stated goal of boosting the socio-economic status of artists and musicians. Part of the increase is to help arts businesses start up or expand. There's also more money for touring, arts marketing, internet-based media, indigenous artists and independent artists. Regina-based arts and cultural industries consultant Marian Donnelly said the new money for arts and culture is good news for all people who would like to see the province prosper.
