2 February was the 2nd day of the eighth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

2 February 2007

CanWest News Service - Environment minister taking climate-change report 'very seriously' (2 February 2007) The scientific community's 'unequivocal' warning about climate change is a turning point in history that the Harper government is taking 'very seriously', Environment Minister John Baird said in Paris after being briefed on a major scientific report by a peer-review panel representing scientists around the world.

Baird promised his government would soon introduce regulations and targets for industry, but he refused to commit to meeting Canada's legally-binding targets under the Kyoto protocol.

'The fourth report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will constitute a turning point in the battle against climate change for the world,' he said. 'Therefore we must accept what the experts say. We must devote our energy to find solutions that would protect the fragile ecosystems of our planet, and we must adopt concrete measures to fight against climate change. And when I say 'we', I mean Canada and all countries. Climate change is a global issue that requires a planetary solution.'

CBC News - 'Planet's future is at stake,' Baird says (2 February 2007) 'The time for talking about this and studying it in Canada is over. We have to get acting,' Environment Minister John Baird told CBC News, adding he would soon be meeting with other world ministers in Paris to discuss how Canada 'can play catch-up' in reducing emissions. 'The planet's future is at stake.' That means moving away from voluntary greenhouse gas emissions caps and enacting tough environmental policies, Baird said.

Ken Denman, a Canadian and one of eight key authors of the study, told CBC News from Paris that scientists believe the temperature increases in the Arctic will be double the average increases elsewhere.

Bloomberg News - Canadian stocks rise to record a 2nd Day (1 February 2007) Canada's TSX Composite Index rose to a record for a second day on 1 February after a US consumer spending report reinforced optimism that demand for Canadian exports will stay strong in its biggest trading partner. The TSX advanced 110.62, or 0.9 per cent, to 13,144.74.

The index has increased 1.8 per cent this year. Power Financial Corp., the owner of Canada's biggest mutual-fund company, paced a gain among financial shares after it agreed to buy Boston-based Putnam Investments for $3.9 billion in cash to break into the $10.4 trillion US fund market. Barrick Gold Corp., the world's largest gold producer, led a measure of raw-materials companies to a third consecutive record.

The Globe and Mail - Foreign brands help vehicle sales accelerate (2 February 2007) Canadian vehicle sales had their best January since 2003 as sales jumped 6 per cent from a year earlier, sparked by gains of more than 30 per cent at Nissan Canada and Volkswagen Canada and record January results racked up by BMW Canada, Mazda Canada, Mercedes Benz Canada, and Toyota Canada. 'I view November, December and January as quite strong and showing no sign of any significant deterioration,' said Ted Carmichael, chief economist for J P Morgan Securities Canada. Both Mr Carmichael and Bank of Nova Scotia economist Carlos Gomes pointed to strong job creation in Canada late last year and falling gas prices as factors underpinning the growth.

The Globe and Mail - Inuit leader nominated for Nobel (2 February 2007) Sheila Watt-Cloutier, an environmental activist in Nunavut, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The 53-year-old has worked on a range of social and environmental issues affecting the Inuit, most recently global climate change. 'It [the nomination] really creates a better awareness and broader awareness of people living at the top of the world and watching the ice melt,' Ms Watt-Cloutier said.

The effects are already being felt, she believes. Changing temperatures have brought north animals for which the Inuit have no names. She was named an Officer of the Order of Canada in July. In December, she was chosen by The Globe as one of five nation builders.

From a Canadian Press report on this: Ms Watt-Cloutier has received numerous awards and honours for her work, including Norway's 2005 Sophie environment prize in 2005 for drawing attention to the impact of climate change and pollution on the traditional lifestyles of the Arctic's indigenous people and others.

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.
