19 November was the 19th day of the fifth month of the 2nd year of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

19 November 2007

Reuters Canada - Canadian wholesale trade jumps in September (19 November 2007) Canadian wholesale trade grew more than expected in September on widespread gains, rising 1.1 per cent after a drop in August, Statistics Canada said. In the year to September, wholesale trade has grown 5.2 per cent.

From a CanWest News Service report on this: 'Wholesale sales came in well above markets expectation,' said TD Economics economics strategist Millan Mulraine. 'Overall the increase in real shipments will certainly provided some much needed boost to September GDP . . . .'

From a Bloomberg News report on this: Five of the seven wholesale components gained in September. The data suggest the economy remains buoyant.

From a Canadian Press report on this: Sales in constant prices, which take price fluctuations into account, rose 1.5 per cent in September to C$48.4 billion.

Statistics Canada - Wholesale trade (19 November 2007) Widespread gains contributed to an estimated 1.1% rise in sales in September to C$43.7 billion. . . . Sales in the personal and household goods sector rose 2.0% in September to C$6.6 billion. All three trade groups in this sector contributed to the increase. Wholesalers of apparel led the way, with a 4.3% rise in sales to C$800 million. Sales of household and personal products rose 2.2% to C$2.8 billion. A marked turnaround in sales in Saskatchewan, coupled with healthy gains in Alberta, Quebec, and Ontario, were the major highlights in September. Following five straight monthly declines, sales in Saskatchewan surged 10.1% in September to C$1.3 billion, their highest level since April. September also proved to be another good month for Alberta's wholesalers, as their sales increased (up 1.8%) for the fourth consecutive month to a new high of C$5.7 billion. In Quebec, sales advanced (up 2.1%) for the third consecutive month to C$8.5 billion. . . . sales in Ontario recovered in September, up 1.2% to C$21.4 billion.

CanWest News Service on Canadian manufacturing sales in September (15 November 2007) Statistics Canada reported that sales of manufactured goods fell slightly to C$50.4 billion in September from C$50.8 billion in August. Transportation was one of the areas of strength, with motor vehicle sales rallying 17 per cent. In Ontario, sales gained 0.7 per cent, almost entirely due to the gains in the transportation sector. Saskatchewan's muscular economy showed its strength, with sales exceeding C$1 billion for the first time on record for a gain of 3.7%.

From a Canadian Press report on this: Sales of durable goods advanced 0.6 per cent in September, their second increase in the past three months.

From a CBC News report on this: On a year-over-year basis, manufacturing sales were 2.1 per cent higher than in September 2006 on a constant-dollar basis.

The Globe and Mail - B.C.'s booming building sector (16 November 2007) The construction cranes of Metro Vancouver are hard at work, each new downtown condo tower a monument to the momentum of the Lower Mainland's real estate boom. Construction is fuelling the boom, with condo sales and housing starts displaying continued strength, according to recent figures. British Columbia is booming. The Business Council of British Columbia is predicting growth of 3 per cent next year. Rising housing prices are, without a doubt, fuelling consumer spending. Housing prices in Metro Vancouver are rising at 12-per-cent rate so far this year—tens of thousands of dollars in added wealth for even a modest condo or house in urban Vancouver.

The Toronto Star - Going to the wall for the Asian mega-mall (17 November 2007) In Toronto's east-side Scarborough neighbourhood, Sheldon Esbin is showing off his gleaming new mall—the Splendid China Tower, an Asian-themed mall that opened earlier this year. Covering 96,000 square feet, Splendid China is directly across the street from the 270,000 sq ft Pacific Mall and the 300,000 sq ft Market Village Mall—which bill themselves as the largest indoor Asian mall complex in North America. But a five-minute drive east, another 435,000 sq ft mall on a massive 8.5 hectare site is under construction that its developer says will claim the title. 'This will be a destination point for consumers,' says the developer, who has another 8.1 hectares to work with for phase two and is open to ideas for the second phase. 'The sky's the limit,' he says. 'It's a chance to build something special.' But the other malls don't plan to sit idly by. They each have plans to expand. When the dust is settled, about one million square feet of retail mall space is in development or being planned for the area. Not since the 1970s and 1980s has there been such a massive amount of planned development in the Greater Toronto Area. 'This is the most extensive development we've had in some time. What you are seeing is the birth of a major new shopping district,' says Shuguang Wang, chair of the department of geography at Ryerson University.

The Canadian Press on Ontario's new northern minister optimistic (18 November 2007) Ontario's new minister for northern Ontario, Michael Gravelle, is talking with optimism about a fresh windfall for the province's northerners. Gravelle is eyeing untapped mining potential. 'It's just booming,' Gravelle said of the mining sector in northern Ontario. New Democrat Leader Howard Hampton agrees. 'The best remaining mining potential in the world isn't in the Amazon basin, or the Congo basin, or in the islands of the South Pacific; the best remaining mining potential in the world is between the 51st parallel and Hudson's Bay in northern Ontario,' he said.

CBC News - N.S. bylaw will ban smoking in cars with kids (18 November 2007) Wolfville, Nova Scotia is known for being picturesque. Now the small town is set to become the first municipality in Canada to ban smoking in vehicles when a child is present. 'The support from the town, I would suggest, is extremely strong,' Mayor Bob Stead told CBC Newsworld. Stead said there was widespread support for the ban at a public meeting held 5 NOvember, and that council thinks it's 'very important' to provide an environment in which children can be protected and safe from health risks. It won't be enforced until it takes effect next June. In the meantime, the town will try to educate people on the dangers of second-hand smoke in vehicles.

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.
